Optelos Launches Turnkey Solution for Drone Workflow, Solving Key Challenges Holding Back Drone Rrograms
Optelos’ turnkey approach is setting the standard for securely managing drone work activities and data content.
A recent industry report by PwC estimates that the value of drone powered applications could reach $125bn worldwide. In addition, with the continued easing of regulations on drone operations in the US, the FAA forecasts 600,000 unmanned aircraft will be registered for commercial use by the end of 2017. The Drone Economy is thriving, but the future is not without challenges.
Optelos offers a new approach for creating integrated, collaborative, and scalable drone programs.
Tran and partner, David Collmann (of TesCom), bring together decades of experience in enterprise. They turned their attention to drones when they saw the potential for this technology to increase speed, safety, and accuracy of survey work, potentially creating tremendous efficiencies for numerous industries. As the Drone Economy evolved, they witnessed growing frustrations as new applications brought unforeseen challenges.
To address these challenges, Optelos created the Drone Work Advisor cloud software along with the Drone Sync Field App. Optelos' patent pending technology indexes and correlates drone digital assets in the field while cloud-based software manages vendors, aggregates drone contents, and manages drone activities. Tran and the Optelos team are leading the industry in making drone programs manageable for enterprises. This is great news for drone contractors as well as the industries employing them.
Optelos promises to solve three fundamental challenges in building scalable drone programs: standardizing workflow, normalizing data, and conducting the surveys.
Standardizing Drone Workflow - Drone work activities are complex and often very different than traditional manual workflows. Organizations have to contend with on-boarding costs of drone operators, work approval, and overall decision support across multiple applications. The lack of standard work process creates inconsistencies that can lead to errors and limit the effectiveness of drone operations.
Optelos works with enterprises and drone operators to provide standard work processes for scheduling drone work, facilitating collaboration and coordination between parties, and securely aggregating and managing drone content across workgroups. One flow, all in one place, connected via the cloud.
Normalizing Drone Data - One benefit of Drone based applications is rapid acquisition of digital data assets from a wide array of payloads, such as photos, videos, and thermal. Drones are data collecting beasts, but the sheer volume can be overwhelming. Imagine data streaming in from hundreds of disparate drone sources, every day, across multiple groups. Organizations need tools to normalize and aggregate this data influx to drive consistent and actionable impacts.
Optelos' patent pending DroneSync™ technology can index and correlate drone digital assets for easy consumption. DroneSync™ allows drone service vendors to aggregate and characterize their results, and then synchronizes the normalized data back to the secure cloud server. With the Drone Work Advisor cloud-based software, enterprises can easily manage, view, and act on the normalized data, regardless of the data source. In essence, the software does the work of bringing disparate puzzle pieces together for a big picture view that makes sense.
David Tran adds, "Our platform can help businesses of all sizes implement standardized work orders, project planning, data aggregation, vendor management, and decision support within a single, simple, scalable cloud application."
Conducting Drone Surveys - Optelos provides turnkey drone operation services to help businesses launch standardized drone programs. Optelos certified pilots conduct inspections alongside field personnel, or Optelos can train employees to conduct drone surveys themselves. This uniquely flexible approach makes drone programs more accessible to more businesses. By providing advanced services like RF testing and point cloud modeling, Optelos ensures participating businesses get the most out of their drone data.
