DJI and Microsoft Working Together on SDK for Windows 10

The two company DJI and Microsoft are working together on a new SDK for Windows 10, AI solutions, and so on. On May 7, Microsoft declared that it is going to collaborating with one of the most world’s largest drone companies: DJI. That is to say, they are going to build SDK for Windows 10.

DJI is a Chinese technology company headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong with manufacturing facilities throughout the world. It is known as a manufacturer of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), also known as drones, for aerial photography and videography. DJI also design and manufacture gimbals, flight platforms, cameras, propulsion systems, camera stabilizers, and flight control systems.

The biggest piece of the partnership is the SDK, which Microsoft says will bring full flight control and real-time data transfer capabilities to Windows 10 devices. Moreover, DJI has chosen to make Azure its “preferred cloud provides” for its commercial drone and software services.

Microsoft Windows SDK, and its predecessors Platform SDK, and .NET Framework SDK, are software development kits (SDKs) from Microsoft that contain documentation, header files, libraries, samples and tools required to develop applications for Microsoft Windows and .NET Framework. Platform SDK specializes in developing applications for Windows 2000, XP and Windows Server 2003. .NET Framework SDK is devoted to developing applications for .NET Framework 1.1 and .NET Framework 2.0. Windows SDK is the successor of the two and supports developing applications for Windows XP and later, as well as .NET Framework 3.0 and later.

“DJI is excited to form this unique partnership with Microsoft to bring the power of DJI aerial platforms to the Microsoft developer ecosystem,” said Roger Luo, president at DJI. “Using our new SDK, Windows developers will soon be able to employ drones, AI and machine learning technologies to create intelligent flying robots that will save businesses time and money, and help make drone technology a mainstay in the workplace.”
