Autoframe is a powerful iOS app that brings the functionality of Autopilot's Focus Mode to the DJI Osmo. Pattern, POI, and Airspace subject types are supported, which makes Autoframe ideal for several unique use cases.
Because the Osmo does not have a built-in compass or GPS, Autoframe relies on the compass and GPS of the connected iOS Device. This means that using POI and Airspace subject types is limited to iOS Devices with GPS (wifi-only iPads do not have GPS), and that the iOS Device must be mounted to the Osmo for these subject types. Mounting gaurantees that the iOS Device is both located at the same GPS coordinate as the Osmo, and that the iOS Device is pointed in the same direction as the Osmo handle. If you attempt to use POI and Airspace subject types outside these conditions, Autoframe cannot calculate the appropriate camera angle and therefore cannot function properly.
There are several unique use cases for Autoframe, including but not limited to:
Autoframe supports three subject types: Pattern, POI, and Airspace. Once a subject is selected, Autoframe will immediately and continuously pitch and yaw the gimbal to the appropriate angle.
Autoframe uses the same powerful networking feature from Autopilot called Airspace. Airspace allows multiple devices to share telemetry in real-time, including both location and altitude information. If a device is connected to an aircraft, it will also share the aircraft telemetry with the other devices in the Airspace.
If you have friends that want to participate in your Airspace at no cost, they can download the free Airspace companion app.
Autoframe currently only supports Network Airspaces because the connection to the Osmo's wifi network interferes with the Peer-to-Peer Airspace type. Network Airspaces use infrastructure wifi and cellular data to enable communication, which means the connection distance is unlimited, but the connection latency maybe be higher, depending on the quality of the network connection. There is no limit to the number of devices in a Network Airspace.
