Traditional techniques for asset inspection that require costly heavy machinery, create societal disruption and force inspectors into dangerous situations have led inspection team managers to search for alternatives.
Skydio developed the 5 As framework that outlines five specific categories of capabilities/requirements to have a full end-state operation
Drones have become a hallmark of the world’s most effective inspection programs. Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) allow teams to quickly collect, process, and disseminate inspection data throughout their organizations efficiently.
With the myriad benefits autonomous drones provide to their pilots and teams, it is no wonder that autonomous drone fleets can grow faster than manual alternatives.
Drones have emerged as valuable public safety tools to gain situational awareness from privileged vantage points, aid officers with faster decision-making and help ensure accountability for everyone involved.
Existing drone regulations were written for conventional manual drones, but the advent of trustworthy autonomy enables new modes of operation and regulatory approaches.
In this eBook, we take a rigorous approach to inspection data comparisons. This series draws on dozens of interviews, image quality benchmarking, and the combined decades of experience from the Skydio Engineering and Customer Success team
