DroneInch, Inc., today announced DroneInch 3.0 automation software, featuring new AI-powered analytics capabilities for companies and service providers to gather insights from collected data, dramatically reducing the time to actionable information. DroneInch is the industry’s first drone automation software to power the entire drone operations lifecycle. The SaaS platform lets organizations plan thousands of flights remotely, operate autonomously while checking for compliance and safety, analyze results using an AI-powered analytics engine, and collaborate across global stakeholders through annotation and task flow creation.
Precisely flying drones to collect data is an extremely daunting manual process. Current solutions, originally developed for photography and gaming, do not meet the scale, automation, analysis, and collaboration needs of large-scale industrialized operations.
