High-rise buildings require regular inspections. With accelerating digitization, the need for structural scans is growing while pilot availability is limited. A new drone charging system for autonomous drone operations will provide smart and fast service. Applications range from smart cities to various types of industrial sites.

Multi-modal with 5G and 4G, the autonomous and drone-agnostic DBX-G7 platform was designed by H3 Dynamics to scale ongoing digitization efforts in safety compliance, maintenance and crisis management. Developed during the COVID-19 pandemic, the system is a direct response to the new telepresence and remote work paradigm.  DBX performs all the functions of an on-site drone pilot: navigation, docking, stowing, battery charging, data retrieval, transmission, and cloud-based processing. Autonomous systems such as DBX help reduce the need for on-site presence and can help alleviate rising labor shortage pressures.

The company has expanded its solution through strategic partnerships, including on a SAP connectivity to send repair work orders directly from its digital platform. Through collaboration with air traffic control leader THALES, H3 Dynamics is working on real-time airspace integration. DBX is the start of autonomous urban air mobility – one that builds immediate commercial experience with lower risk, 5-kg drones operations, a living laboratory for smart cities considering 4-5-ton air taxis designed to carry passengers, according to the company’s announcement.

It can host professional drones from different manufacturers, and support multiple communication protocols and operating standards. This enables a broad range of applications – from solar farms to precision agriculture, critical infrastructure maintenance, utilities, buildings, perimeter security, and more.
