If you’ve ever wondered exactly how drones get used during a public safety mission, the new Skydio video series is worth watching. In Episode 1, The Fire, a 3-minute video explains exactly how and in what situations a Skydio drone is deployed by first responders: showing the outputs, explaining the sensors used, and describing the use by various stakeholders. Through the story of a chemical fire, the short film provides real world context for drone technology in public safety.
Skydio’s autonomous drones offer a unique tool for first responders, lowering the cognitive load required to fly less autonomous platforms – a critical advantage in a crisis. In the last few years, U.S.-based Skydio has joined the First Responder and public safety community: as a DRONERESPONDERS partner and corporate sponsor, and through their partnership with Axon, a top provider of technology for law enforcement.
Skydio’s been working hard to get the word out about their autonomous platforms, sponsoring webinars and demonstrations around the world. This new Skydio video series provides an up-close look at a Skydio X2 at work and manages to tell a compelling story in just 3 minutes.
