Today, unmanned aerial vehicles are already commonplace. But this drone, which we will talk about, is capable of landing on a surface the size of a small toolbox, without any human intervention. The drone and landing box (base) presented in the video are the result of the hard work of Airobotics specialists from Tel Aviv. Previously, Airobotics was engaged in the creation of UAVs with an emphasis on photography and videography, but soon the company reconsidered its views and came to grips with the development of fully autonomous unmanned systems for commercial use.
About the product
Airobotics has developed a patented system in which the drone interacts closely with the so-called base. The system is completely autonomous, the drone is able to take off and fly for 30 minutes, then return and land on a prepared launch pad, which will then lower the drone into the base.
If a flight is scheduled in the drone’s flight plan, the system will automatically change the spent battery to a charged one and return the launch pad with the drone to its original position again. The base is completely protected from the effects of various types of precipitation and ensures 100% safety of the UAV and the system as a whole.
The main application of the system is autonomous patrolling, inspection, inspection, etc. Co-founder Ran Krauss, responded: “What sets us apart is that we offer the only working solution that fully automates the entire process from start to finish.”
The system has already been adopted by more than 13 major companies such as Israel Chemicals, which uses the system to estimate phosphate reserves, eliminating the need for geological exploration from the ground. Another company uses the system to monitor chemical leaks in tanks and pipes.
Ran Krauss predicts: “What, ‘drones in a box’ will soon become a standard work tool in industries such as mining and agriculture. This year will be defining for drones.”
