Aria Insights, a company on a mission to provide autonomous, robotic teammates, has launched to provide autonomous robotic teammates that can enter logistically difficult and potentially dangerous environments to collect essential information while keeping users safe.
While reaching the inaccessible is feature of many drone services, what makes Aria unique is the fact that it uses artificial intelligence (AI) more effectively for harnessing data collected by drones and ensuring user safety. The decision to place an increased focus on artificial intelligence comes from years of industry experience identifying that the power of drones is limited only by the use and understanding of the data they collect.
Lance Vanden Brook, CEO of Aria Insights says, “After 10 years of innovating and redefining drone technology, the team at CyPhy saw the limitations facing the industry – namely the complications and risks of retrieving and analyzing data,” Lance adds, “There was no service in the industry to quickly and efficiently turn that data into actionable insights. Moving beyond just a hardware provider, Aria is now a full-service solution that not only meets customers’ aerial needs, but also processes analytics that enable insightful decision making.”
Aria Founded by the team at CyPhy Works, Aria Insights is expanding upon CyPhy’s tethered drone legacy by integrating AI and machine learning software into its drones. The company will provide customers with intelligent, autonomous drones that both collect and analyze data to create actionable insights for users. The result will provide better analysis of the massive amount of data drones collect to provide greater safety insights and higher quality intelligence to the public safety, oil & gas, and other commercial sectors.
Aria Insights is in fact named after a flock of canaries that kept coal miners safe from deadly gases. Decision makers equipped with smarter data collection and machine learning will respond more quickly and efficiently in addressing a problem or executing a mission, thus avoiding risk to human lives. For example when Aria Insights’ robots will identify information of interest, send an alert of new information detected, and ultimately connect all of the data to a digital 3D map along with sophisticated analytics, decision makers no longer need spend hours capturing and watching video.
Aria Insights will convert collected data into actionable plans. For example, identification of maintenance in maintenance of confined and potentially hazardous spaces, such as oil tankers or pipelines, by Aria drones. Aria’s drones could monitor the development of a natural disaster and alert first responders, or even notify event organizers when portions of a crowd may need more supervision.
Amy Villeneuve, Chairman of the Board at Aria Insights, said: “Our history as CyPhy Works has enabled us to propel our business to new heights with the launch of Aria Insights. Building upon our past success and knowledge, Aria Insights provides commercial markets with a full-service drone solution that combines the power of autonomy and machine learning to change the landscape of the drone industry.” More information on Aria Insights is available at: http://www.ariainsights.com/.
