American Robotics’ autonomous drone has been certified by the Federal Aviation Administration, making it the first federally licensed drone on the market.
Drones that operate independently are a significant technical advancement. Not for domestic use because safety is still an issue, but this could boost productivity in a variety of industries because it’s nearly impossible to have someone operate multiple drones from day to night all of the time.
The autonomous drone is a fully integrated system that automates everything from landing to charging to data processing, making it an all-in-one solution.
Scout, the AI-powered autonomous drone, Soutbase, the weatherproof charging, and edge computing station, and Scoutview, the fleet management, and analytics software, are the solution’s three key components.
The Scout base is where the Scout is charged and data is processed. Scoutview allows businesses to monitor and communicate with drones without the need for a human operator.
The drone is equipped with visual, multispectral, and infrared cameras, making data collection quick and straightforward. The acquired data may be accessed instantaneously in real-time. The Scout systems will be able to perform missions independently after the installation is complete, collecting, processing, and analyzing data.
Demands for Autonomous Drones and the Market
Drones that can be used for commercial purposes have a huge market. Its TAM is expected to be worth 100 billion dollars (total addressable market). Drones might thus be utilized in a variety of areas, including industry, agriculture, and defense.
It might be used in industrial markets for asset inspection, tracking, security, and safety. It may be used for weed identification, disease detection, plant counting, research, harvest planning, and harvest timing in the agricultural market.
You’re in luck if you’re seeking surveillance and reconnaissance in the defense industry! As a consequence, these markets and sectors may use autonomous drones to perform work in broad fields that are difficult to analyze swiftly by people. It also makes data collection easier thanks to its integrated software and solutions.
Ondas has bought the Software Defined Radio platform for Mission Critical IoT applications. To manage thousands of connected devices over long distances,
Ondas provides a choice of trustworthy and secure broadband networks. With the help of Ondas’ high-bandwidth network, American Robotic’s autonomous drones will be able to send and receive long-range data, with thousands of drones continually gathering and processing high-resolution data.
This, we believe, is the way industrial data will be collected in the future. The combined company can provide the ultimate autonomous drone with unrivaled capabilities that can boost production in a variety of sectors.
