Automated solutions are one of the fastest growing sectors in the drone industry. This year, a new player is entering the continent. Taiwan-based Coretronic Intelligent Robotics Corporation (CIRC) is already present in Asia as an artificial intelligence (AI)-based drone-in-a-box (DIB) provider. Their solutions are well suited for security, inspection and disaster response applications. According to a company statement, they are the only high-volume manufacturer available outside of China. Their R&D teams can therefore provide custom design and manufacturing solutions virtually anywhere.
Their five application areas are security or inspection, field inspection, transportation, mobile deployment and long-range vertical take-off and landing (VTOL). Their two types of stations for automated loading and monitoring include heating-cooling systems that enable their solutions to be used in a wide temperature range, from -10 to +40 degrees Celsius.
Their package also includes software. Their Fleet Management System (FMS), called SkyWatch, allows you to remotely control one or hundreds of drones at will – whether in the cloud or on-site. Insight is CIRC’s artificial intelligence-powered analytics platform, which can extract a wealth of useful information from the data captured.
The drone-in-a-box solution can be easily integrated into new or existing systems. Access is via an application programming interface (API). This allows direct control of the entire fleet management system and the operation of the subsystems on board the drone. But for fully customised solutions, new applications can also be developed on demand.
CIRC’s solutions are used by government and law enforcement agencies as well as multinational companies worldwide. The company is confident that with the opening of new offices in the UK, it can contribute to the boost of the European market with another automated drone solution. Their complete system and flight demonstrations can be viewed at their site in Hemel Hempstead, UK.
