Autonomous Indoor Drone for EXplosive environments (EIC Accelerator application)


Our integrated drone system has unlimited flight time and LiDAR based indoor navigation and real-time position tagging of inspection data. As a result of Lidar-powered stability, our drone also produces crisp visual inspection data with consistent and smooth framing. There is an onboard 4K camera mounted on a 2-axis stabilized gimbal that is pitch-adjustable between +/- 90 degrees, to cover inaccessible ledges, ceilings etc. The onboard lighting rig provides over 10 000 Lumens of light and has flexible control options. Autonomy enables pilot-free operations which ensure full inspection coverage and our multi-sensor navigation capabilities enable navigation even in dust/smoke. Furthermore, our drone will be ATEX certified as first in the world. Our portal is equipped with machine learning algorithms that will help to pinpoint any possible problem areas. The portal will also support inspeaction planning, visualization and enables integration with Digital Twin software.
