drones must stop act as the mindless hardware they’re still named to be.
The drone industry faces a major transformation. Currently, drones are being used in all kinds of situations, from inspecting bridges to acting as first responders in disaster areas. But these applications have one thing in common – a dedicated pilot. Drones can’t operate on their own yet. They’re not safe enough, not reliable enough. For the future, it’s not a sustainable situation. It doesn’t scale.
For drones to become autonomous, to be able to independently carry out missions, especially in urban areas, they must become aware. Of their surroundings, of the people around them, of environmental conditions gentle and harsh. In essence, drones must stop act as the mindless hardware they’re still named to be.
They must be able to take-off and navigate, to land safely and without incident in complex environments. They must without a fault detect and avoid collisions with buildings, people, cats and kids. And they must navigate with great precision, to always reach their target, and never fail.
Everdrone does all this. By integrating our state of the art vision technology with any drone platform, we allow the drone industry to scale. Our development is progressing, and we are now looking for the right drone manufacturers to collaborate with.
