3. Why? Drones are the future of IoT because they: – are not static – are deployable – can carry flexible payloads – can be re-programmable in mission – can measure just about anything, anywhere
4. Hobby Open-source Mass produced Cheap Commercial applications [Cloud device] Extensible High ROI Specialized use Proprietary Custom made Expensive A new kind of drone
5. Aircraft Sensors/Payloads Ground Control & Communications SoftwareAvionics Unmanned ‘systems’ Commercial Applications
7. Fixed wing
8. Fact or Fiction? It’s possible to run a drone in France from your smartphone in California.
9. Deployable • Cloud control for drones • Addressable smart drone management platform controls multiple drones, from anywhere, on any device. • Founded 2013 • San Francisco based
10. Deployable 4G telemetry device enables any drone with real-time data transmission, processing and sharing
11. Control a fleet Runs missions anywhere in the world Multiple drones
12. Flexible payloads • Unmanned aerial systems and remote sensing company • Founded in 2010 • Provides an end-to-end solution for aerial data gathering, processing and analysis across a wide range of civilian industries • Operates out of offices in Indianapolis, Raleigh, and Toronto
13. Flexible payloads Hot-swappable sensors
14. Reprogrammable in-mission • Swiss company based in Cheseaux- Lausanne. • Founded in 2009 as a spin-off of the EPFL – based Laboratory of Intelligence Systems • Develop, assemble and market autonomous mini-drones and related software solutions for civil professional applications such as accurate mapping of mining sites, quarries, forests, construction sites, crops, etc.
