The specifics of how a drone might be able to impact an energy & utility company vary depending on the specifics of what an organization is looking to do, but there are still some aspects of an approach that are borderline universal. There are an unlimited number of ways drone technology can be leveraged but it’s important to establish the right expectations when it comes to how drones can make a given task faster, cheaper or safer. Specific presentations that define how these efficiencies can be enabled will be explored in detail followed by a panel discussion that further defines action items for attendees.
Building Aerial Autonomous Systems with an AI First Approach
How can we incorporate greater autonomy into the next generation of unmanned aircraft systems, drones, and advanced aerial mobility platforms? Building autonomous systems that operate in safety-critical environments is challenging. An AI first platform provides a repeatable, scalable, and extensible training ground for intelligent agents, such as drones, by providing high fidelity 3D environments, sensor simulation and a programmable interface to create infinitely scalable simulations. These agents can safely and efficiently learn new skills and practice operating in dynamic, resource-constrained environments.
