New Inspection Drone Uses Wind to Lengthen Flight Times

Ele­phant is about infra­struc­ture mon­i­tor­ing and inspec­tion spin-off from epfl that uses drones our drone has the abil­i­ty to fly hov­er­ing in low speed near infra­struc­ture and thus acquire high qual­i­ty data but then it also can fly for real­ly long ranges com­pared to stan­dard drones on the mar­ket and thus go to the next and.

Next inspec­tion point so here we have Mor­pho in both its fly­ing con­fig­u­ra­tion the ver­ti­cal flight con­fig­u­ra­tion and the hor­i­zon­tal flight con­fig­u­ra­tion where it flies as a plane and Mor­pho thanks to its mor­ph­ing capa­bil­i­ty in which it can move each Wing inde­pen­dent­ly has some unique char­ac­ter­is­tic first of all it can land.

On uneven sur­faces what cur­rent drones can­not do so it could adapt the angle of its wings to land on dif­fer­ent ter­rains then it can adopt this sta­ble ver­ti­cal flight con­fig­u­ra­tion at the same time it can con­tin­ue to move the wings to either reject adverse wind cur­rents or har­vest wind ener­gy and move with the flow and the air we are going to start pilot.

Project with dif­fer­ent poten­tial cus­tomer or col­lab­o­ra­tors and what is real­ly excit­ing for us is that we are still at the devel­op­ment stage where we are very very flex­i­ble so there is ongo­ing dis­cus­sions to see which kind of sen­sor we are going to fit into the plat­form to suit best the client needs with our Inno­v­a­tive drone tech­nol­o­gy.

Cus­tomers can get up to 40 per­cent reduc­tion in costs while also ben­e­fit­ing from a 35 per­cent decrease of oper­a­tors Field Time
