The Danish drone software startup, Robotto, most known for the wildfire AI-drone software helping firefighters do their job with real-time analyzed data, is proud to announce the beta testing of Robotto Search and Rescue.
When searching for those in need of rescuing, emergency services rely on many different reconnaissance techniques, including grid pattern searches, dog searches, and aerial surveillance. Several departments have begun to utilize drones as they are relatively inexpensive and easy to get in the air, getting their eyes in the sky fast.
Much like Robotto Fire, Robotto Search and Rescue harnesses the power of artificial intelligence to enable the drone to fly and search autonomously, identifying those in need, giving the users the ability to actively interact to determine if the identified person is the one in trouble.
HOW IT WORKS
1. Drone operators select an area on the map for the drone to search.
2. The software identifies the most effective flight path and begins to fly autonomously
3. Using AI, the software identifies subjects who may be in need of emergency services.
4. Drone operators evaluate the identification and choose to either continue searching or to hover and monitor the situation.
To ensure the best software for emergency responders, Robotto will be conducting a beta testing round. For this, we are looking for five drone teams who:
Has experience using drones for Search and Rescue purposes
Has or is willing to purchase a DJI Matrice 300
Has or is willing to purchase a DJI Manifold 2-3 (128g). (An onboard computer where the software operates)
Beta testers will receive special access to the software, which includes a beta testing license, allowing them to utilize the software in their ongoing operations. Participants will be expected to answer periodic surveys, share videos, and participate in marketing videos.
Participation requirements include:
Reporting bugs activity to Robotto
Participate in feedback activities such as surveys and interviews
Participating in marketing activities such as video production and testimonials.
