Israel-based autonomous inspection with industrial robotics company Percepto announced Wednesday the launch of its upgraded 2022 Autonomous Inspection & Monitoring (AIM) platform and its new Air Mobile drone.
Recently listed in TIME magazine’s 100 Best Inventions of 2021 – along with three other Israeli inventions – Percepto offers the only end-to-end solution powered by AI to collate and streamline all visual data for establishing meaningful findings that result from analyzing accurate data.
The newly launched Insight Manager delivers AI-powered solutions for sector-specific use cases, such as solar, mining, energy, oil & gas and other industries. By drawing upon tens of thousands of hours collected by autonomous robot missions at industrial facilities, Percepto’s AI change detection framework offers unified visual data and critical business insights for each of the sector-specific solutions.
AIM 2022 can be integrated with autonomous drones and robots as well as other visual data collectors, now including DJI drones, and fixed cameras. Reports and insights are automatically generated based on the combined visual data. Disseminated to relevant stakeholders on any mobile device, issues and faults are geotagged and displayed on a map, enabling effective action before escalating into more serious problems.
In addition to the AIM, the company two new drones; the Percepto Air Max and the Percepto Air Mobile. The Air Max is a development from the Percepto Sparrow and it is a field-proven solution that operates in the largest mining, oil and gas, and energy companies on six continents. It has a top-grade, versatile payload for specific use-cases. It has been designed to inspect and map complex industrial environments where the highest accuracy and durability are critical. Air Max is also the only Drone-In-A-Box (DIB) with Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera.
Meanwhile, the Air Mobile is a more compact and lighter-weight model for smaller, less expansive sites or for organizations that might be new to the DIB concept. It is ideal for linear inspections, such as pipelines and power lines, and can monitor short-term projects across multiple sites, such as construction.
The drones can be stored permanently on-site with their respective bases, designed as they are for infrequent maintenance, although they provide protection against environmental phenomena, such as hurricanes.
“Percepto AIM 2022 and the new Percepto Air line of drones together with the most advanced change detection solution alert and prevent failures and downtime within diverse use cases across many industries,” said Percepto CEO Dor Abuhasira. “Percepto AIM provides the most advanced and comprehensive enterprise inspection software that offers a complete data workflow – from capture to insight. With Percepto Air Max and Percepto Air Mobile, companies have a range of options to choose from depending on the size of their facilities and the flexibility needed to deploy drones.”
