Percepto has launched the next generation of its AI-powered autonomous industrial Drone-in-a-Box (DIB). The solution includes a highly portable, smaller, lighter-weight and extreme weather-resistant base station. Adding 5G compatibility, the new DIB also features seamless integration of 2D mapping and 3D modelling, customised reporting, comprehensive compliance and enhanced safety functions.
The DIB solution provides constant aerial visual insights. It enables organisations operating around the world in the mining, energy and industrial, oil and gas, ports and terminals sectors, to optimise their security and business operations, whilst reducing risks and operational costs. Launched at IFSEC International in London, the new next-generation Percepto solution provides many significant upgrades and new features.
Smaller, lighter-weight and highly portable base
The smaller and lighter-weight (162 kg) Percepto base makes it easier to transport, deploy and manoeuvre units into position, in order to schedule and manage a wide range of surveillance, mapping, inspection and maintenance missions.
The entire DIB solution is protected by high levels of extreme weather resistance, with the new Percepto Base achieving an ingress protection rating of IP65, which promises complete protection against contact with moving parts inside the enclosure and against the ingress of dust.
Seamless integration of 2D mapping and 3D modelling
New features enable constant site scanning and pile inspection for better inventory management. A fully integrated data dashboard is created automatically upon mission completion as well as customised reporting for pile inspection and change detection.
In addition, the new Percepto DIB solution is powered by the PerceptoCore software suite which now includes new customisable reports to translate aerial data from Sparrow drones to actionable insights. Each stakeholder operating on site receives aerial insights relevant to his/her field of interest.
With 5G networks being switched on around the world, Percepto is leading the autonomous drone market by adding 5G compatibility to its latest version. In April 2019, the company revealed that it had successfully proven the ability to fly autonomous drones over SK Telecom’s (the largest mobile operator in Korea) 5G trial network.
Comprehensive compliance and enhanced safety
The Percepto solution has always adhered to the most stringent global regulatory compliance requirements. In order to provide even greater levels of safety and to protect the Sparrow drone in the highly unlikely event of malfunction, units can now be equipped with an integrated parachute. Another additional safety enhancement feature is the ability to lock accurate drone position in case of loss of GPS.
