Recent footage shows a Percepto Sparrow autonomous, drone-in-a-box technology successfully completing a flight in heavy snow.
The company’s Sparrow takes off from a base station and completes pre-scheduled or on-demand data collection and analysis missions.
The footage shows the Sparrow take off in dry conditions, before the snowfall begins and eventually becomes very heavy.
The drone manages to complete its mission despite the snow.
A Percepto spokesperson commented: “At this time of year parts of the world are experiencing extreme weather conditions. In the US snow is falling heavily but it isn’t stopping Percepto’s autonomous industrial drones from flying.”
