In his speech, Ran shared his personal journey that led to the creation of Airobotics, and addressed how industrial facilities now have the opportunity to use revolutionary technology to accomplish inspections, mapping, surveillance and more – using drones that are fully automatic.
“The vision was to fulfill the potential of drones. The way was to build the first automatic drone, without a pilot. The idea was a drone in box. We wanted to create a flying robot.” -Ran Krauss
The end-to-end service plan that Airobotics offers encompasses drone technology that is self-operational and industrial grade. Ran shared how Airobotics’ solution both removes the risk of human error and provides high-quality, analyzed data on-demand through pre-scheduled missions and 1-click launches.
“My own passion with drones started 7 years ago when I walked into an electronic store to buy a juicer. A shiny box caught my attention with the image of a weird looking flying device. I left the store with a toy drone in hand, but no juicer.” -Ran Krauss
Inspecting industrial facilities and surveying mining sites are time consuming, expensive, and dangerous as well as essential tasks. The products and services currently used for inspecting and surveying industrial locations are oftentimes unable to access certain areas depending on the terrain, may provide low-resolution data, and tend to be exorbitantly expensive. The concept of using UAVs to obtain high-resolution data from complex industrial environments has gained attention across the world. However, UAV operations are limited due to the need for field operators who must be present for each flight, as well as high cost associated with hiring a UAV service.
