Flyability has launched the Elios 2, a new drone designed to specialise indoor inspection.
Since the launch of the first Elios platform in 2016, Flyability has always specialised in remote aerial inspection of confined areas.
Commenting on the release at this year’s AUVSI Xponential in Chicagom Patrick Thevoz, CEO of Flyability, said: “At the heart of Flyability products lies collision-tolerance. It is the true enabler to gathering data in the intricate and hostile places where our customers are searching for insights.”
He added: “To date, more than 550 Elios drones have been deployed at over 350 sites to inspect critical infrastructure for industries as diverse as power generation, mining, oil and gas, and chemical, even operating in radioactive areas of nuclear plants. While Flyability’s expertise is in drone technologies, we are really in the business of keeping people safe and reducing asset downtime.”
The company says it has aimed to reinvent collision-tolerance transforming a formerly passive mechanical protection design into active intelligence built into the flight controller and motors of the Elios 2.
It is complemented by 7 vision stability sensors pointing in all directions to provide GPS-free stabilization.
It also features a powerful and intelligent lighting system which produces 10K Lumen of light for increased situational awareness in large spaces.
Flyability confirmed it is currently accepting orders for the new Elios 2.
