Integrated Informatics Inc. Takes to the Sky with senseFly's eBee Unmanned Aerial System

UAV system allows GIS professionals a cost-effective solution for aerial data

Integrated Informatics Inc. now offers a complete aerial data solution, from data capture to analysis and data management, using senseFly's eBee unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). This solution offers a significant cost-reduction related to mobilization and demobilization of fixed-wing and helicopter surveys.


Stephen Rowe of Integrated Informatics comments, "Prior to senseFly's eBee, Integrated Informatics would have to rely on client-sourced imagery and digital elevation data, or pull from legacy data. In some cases, the data wasn't even suited for the analysis being performed. By integrating the eBee, we now have the opportunity to capture and deliver data that specifically matches the requirements of our client's projects." Rowe continued, "We have flexibility with respect to spatial resolution and vertical accuracy that will result in more accurate analysis results."

Integrated Informatics Inc. is a leading consultancy for Geographic Information System implementation and development. Founded in 2002, Integrated Informatics provides spatial data management, workflow and process automation, and custom mapping solutions to the Energy and Natural Resource sectors throughout North America with offices in Calgary, Alberta, Houston, Texas, and St. John's, Newfoundland.

senseFly is a Swiss company that develops and produces autonomous ultralight flying drones, also called UAVs, and related software solutions.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
