Utilizing Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems (RPAS) and the accompanying payload and ground technologies allows for early identification of crop stresses, disease, pests, infestations and environmental conditions enabling rapid response to mitigate losses. In many cases, the data can be used for prediction mapping across an entire growing area before concerns become losses. Drones and their applications are quickly becoming an indispensable tool for making crop management decisions and optimizing farm management.
InDro Robotics provides highly advanced infrastructure monitoring, utilizing state-of-the-art technology and unique sensor packages to provide in-depth data and insights on difficult to access structures.
3D Imaging & Site Surveying
Drone site surveys can reduce time, cost, and employee risk by keeping “boots on the ground” while capturing high-resolution, accurate images. Data from one-hour aerial surveys can be used to create 3D models, elevation maps, and orthophotos, usually within 24 hours. Also measures slope and stockpile volumes of various material.
Remotely-piloted and tethered drones are ideal for monitoring equipment, inventory and traffic patterns with frequent and on-demand snapshots. Gathers data to provide progress reports and assess structural integrity of pours and elevators, frames and rooftops.
How disasters are responded to is changing rapidly. More countries are adopting different technologies to help in urgent situations. One of the most disruptive innovations is the use of drones before a disaster happens. Pre-planning and mapping can be carried out quickly and efficiently on scales not attainable by satellite or manned aircraft. On scene evaluation, subject search, delivery of aid and of radio relay and temporary cell communications can be provided by UAVs.
Search and Rescue
First Responders working in fires, floods, hostage situations and wilderness emergency situations are increasingly recognizing drones for the critical role technology plays in aiding and working alongside emergency missions. Size, speed, agility and low-cost of drone technology make them efficient and cost-effective. UAVs can be sent into potentially dangerous or hostile situations and bring back critical information. Beyond much needed situational awareness, UAVs can identify post fire hot spots, the heat map of a building, spectral signatures or gas composition for hazardous assessments. Emergency services can benefit from this time-saving information allowing better use of expertise, personnel, resources and site safety.
InDro Robotics’ UAVs are equipped with a selection of sensors including high resolution RGB, LIDAR, real time kinematic (RTK) and global navigation satellite systems (GNSS). These modifications increase accuracy and reduce survey time. Using UAVs for data acquisition results in saving significant costs and also improves the safety of the survey team. Using InDro Robotics data shareability, information can be collected onsite, processed and inspected via the cloud, enabling engineers to carry out tasks without repeat visits to the site.
UAV monitoring and collection of traffic data from an airborne platform provides the ability to cover large areas in detail. Drone sensors provide information rich data that our AI (artificial intelligence) can mine for vehicle type, location, movement monitoring, speed, densities and gate counting. With the addition of the InDro Robotics tether, data can be collected over multiple days.
Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems (RPAS) are already having a positive impact on the health of the planet in a number of ways including: climate research, monitoring green house gas emissions, early detection of wildfire hazardous, seed drops for planting, wildlife counts, pollution response and environmental reparation validation.
InDro Robotics’ Talos for the marine industry is the ideal platform for general survey missions. The large, accessible wet bay allows for one vessel to carry multiple mission profiles through adapting couplers. The vessel is powered through twin motors operating in skid steer mode, allowing for improved control in tight quarters and reduced mechanical systems. Both remote controlled and autonomous options are available as part of the standard product package. Toggling between modes can be done on the flight without interrupting autonomous way points. Autonomous missions can be monitored and modified through the shore station or vessel based telemetry link. Video streaming is also available.
The use of UAV’s in mining optimizes productivity, while reducing costs and increasing safety. InDro Robotics drones allow operators to access up-to-date information and imagery to more effectively manage production, land and assets. We perform scheduled site surveys with aerial data collection to monitor an operation.
Government use of UAVs has outstripped all expectations to become an important operational tool across many governmental organizations, as equipment becomes more relevant to their specific needs. Beyond the early adopters of search and rescue, police, fire and emergency management, infrastructure monitoring, disaster preparedness, and city planning.
Counter UAV and detection has been recognized as an imperative as new threats and concerns arrive along with the new technology. As such, InDro Robotics has a dedicated division committed to safe and responsible use of counter UAV technology.
