Percepto to Present AI-Powered Autonomous Drones Case Study at Energy Drone & Robotics Summit


Percepto, the global market leader for autonomous industrial drone solutions, today announced that it will showcase how large energy sites across Europe and the US are using its AI-powered autonomous industrial Drone-in-a-Box (DIB), at the Energy Drone & Robotics Summit. The presentation entitled ‘Autonomous & Remote UAV Operations in Energy – Real-World Implementations’ will take place in Houston, U.S. on June 12, 2019.

VP Marketing at Percepto, Illy Gruber, will be on stage to present how autonomous drones have been adopted by energy companies to maximize production, whilst reducing costs and risks, ensuring site safety, security and regulatory compliance. Illy will explain how Percepto’s AI-powered autonomous industrial DIB solution is being used by its customers. Among them is the energy giant Enel, an Italian multinational manufacturer and distributor of electricity and gas, that is the first utility company to integrate autonomous drones into its operations.

Percepto’s DIB solution comprises Sparrow drones each equipped with HD and IR cameras, and housed within weather-proof base stations from which they automatically take-off for pre-scheduled or live controlled missions, before returning for post flight checks and recharging. Powered by a cloud management system, the Percepto solution enables energy companies to monitor, inspect and maintain site safety and security, as well as day-to-day operations, around the clock, without the human involvement and high costs associated with ‘piloted’ drones.

Illy Gruber explains: “We are excited to demonstrate how autonomous drones are changing the way industrial sites consume aerial data. Our customers pioneer in the adoption of drones, as an essential tool that operate with their various teams.” Gruber adds: “With our drone on-site, every team member gains easy access to aerial data and insights from their desktop, even if miles away from the site.”

The Energy Drone & Robotics Summit is a forum dedicated to launching, growing and scaling enterprise UAV/Robotics operations in energy companies worldwide by bringing the major rapidly growing segments within the UAV/AUV/Robotics ecosystem together with the energy industrial complex asset owners and end users. It takes place June 12-13, 2019, at the Woodlands Waterway Marriot in Houston. For more information visit:
