/30th January 2019, Airobotics/ Leading automated drone startup Airobotics today announced record growth in 2018 and an expansion of its executive team in its new global headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, following a recent successful Series D funding round.
Airobotics, the only commercial drone solution worldwide permitted to fly without a human operator, also announced the introduction of LiDAR capabilities, which until a few years ago was only possible with an aircraft as the sensors were hefty and required manual data processing. Today, LiDAR images are captured and processed quickly in the cloud, allowing Airobotics’ customers to make effective decisions based on high-frequency, consistent data capture.
Airobotics’ LiDAR capabilities provides rapid precision scans across the value chain for industries such as mining and construction. Applications typically involve tailing dams monitoring, infrastructure inspections, haul road safety compliance, stockpile volume analytics, tracking rehabilitation progress, and more.
The use of LiDAR significantly reduces the time it takes for aerial data to be collected, even at night or in low light, and allows for rapid turn-around time on data processing. Airobotics’ drones can work with various payloads. In addition to LiDAR, spatial data can also be captured using photogrammetry, video, and infra-red (thermal).
