An “aerial intelligence platform” that fully integrates the hardware and image rendering software provides ready-to-use imagery with almost no operator intervention required.
The new quad-rotor Kespry 2.0 boasts several key improvements based on feedback the company received from its customers.
The new lighter-weight flies twice as long, covers twice the ground area, and has twice the wind resilience, due to the new airframe, battery, and flight system improvements. The new now flies over 30 minutes per flight, covering up to 150 acres at a 400 foot altitude. It weighs under 2 kg, which puts it in the “Micro ” category for streamlined regulatory compliance around the world.
The fully-automated system, takes off, flies the designated flight path, and lands, all without operator intervention or even a joystick.
For operation in congested areas, including applications like roof inspections for insurance claims, the new Kespry 2.0 is the first automated system that includes an on-board LiDAR sensor that automatically detects and avoids obstacles like trees, cranes, and buildings.
Vision reports that the new Kespry 2.0 also has a lighter-weight and customized Sony industrial UMC-R10C camera that captures more geospatial data for detailed 3D models that assist companies in areas like mine planning, operations, inspection and safety.
