Autel and AirData, advanced fleet management software, have partnered to provide EVO II users with enterprise fleet management tools. This latest partnership makes the EVO series, U.S. -made, lower priced, compact commercial drones, even more competitive for enterprise drone programs.
“Now optimized for all Autel Evo II camera models, by utilizing AirData, Autel pilots can reduce the risk in flying and managing Autel Evo II drones and fleets,” says an Autel press release. “AirData brings advanced fleet management functionality integrated with the Autel ecosystem, including pilot and flight data logging and analysis, compliance management, maintenance tracking, and crash prevention information, as well as increasing flight efficiency for better and safer drone operations.”
AirData’s real-time live stream video is an additional benefit for Autel pilots, requiring no additional hardware, and compatible with virtually any common browser application on any device. The streams are PIN-protected, enabling pilots to securely determine who is able to view the low-latency drone feed anywhere over the Internet.
“With our fleet of over 80 drones and over 120 pilots, AirData has proven to be an invaluable resource for us addressing all of our fleet needs, in a very easy-to-use manner. We were also thoroughly impressed with the Evo II aircraft and the selling point for us was the compatibility with AirData. I am confident our railroad is a much safer place now with our drone program, the Autel Evo II’s and AirData,” said Kim Thomas, Manager-Safety Specialist, CSX Transportation.
“AirData also provides deep analytics into the performance parameters of the drone system, allowing pilots to better understand flight efficiency, battery life, radio strength, camera usage tracking, and any data relevant to the operation of the aircraft,” says the press release.
“At the onset of development of our sUAS program we realized a need for a robust, automated system to provide operational solutions. Our search led us to Autel and AirData. Since then we have experienced seamless integration and prompt support from our partners at Autel and AirData to help us continue to grow our program,” said Lieutenant Jim Pauly, Omaha PD.
This collaborative effort between Autel Enterprise Robotics and AirData combines one of the fastest “out of the box, into the air aircraft in the market with a market leader in unmanned analytic software packages.
“AirData is excited to partner with Autel to augment the EVO II’s impressive power, reliability and efficiency by analyzing its flight and pilot data to ensure optimal and safer flights. The AirData platform easily captures and manages Autel fleets, so that all pilots and flights comply with regulatory and operational requirements,” said Eran Steiner, CEO for AirData. “EVO II’s unparalleled payload lineup is a perfect match with AirData’s low latency live streaming; you can be up in the air and streaming in seconds, as no hardware or lengthy setup is needed.”
“Autel Enterprise Robotics are proud to offer a deep and robust aircraft with rich data output, augmented with AirData’s analytics. An informed enterprise pilot is a smarter and safer pilot, enabled to make efficient decisions around mission planning and flight operations,” said Gary DeLuca, Autel Robotics USA’s CEO. “We are equally excited to enable our pilots to stream media anywhere without additional hardware, now that AirData is partnered alongside Autel Enterprise.”
