Tool to Platform: Summarizing 2019 And Projecting 2020
December 20, 2019
In 2019 Drone Harmony made the transition from a leading data capture mobile app for digitizing vertical infrastructure to a data acquisition platform capable of not only automating, but also organizing and streamlining digitalization efforts of large enterprises. So what’s in store for 2020?
In 2019 we released Drone Harmony Cloud, our web-based planning platform and cloud service. We’ve build Drone Harmony Cloud to become our customers’ focal point for planning drone operations. The enterprise digitalization engineer can use Drone Harmony Cloud to easily plan hundreds of complex flight missions across a complex asset portfolio and automatically allocate tasks to operators in the filed using the platform’s automated collaboration features.
Furthermore, we’ve advanced and refined our mobile application, enhancing even further its usability, automation and safety features. We have integrated the mobile app with Drone Harmony Cloud, giving rise to the first data capture platform based on 3D data and automation of mission planning in vertical infrastructure markets.
In 2020, the Drone Harmony platform will make further leaps towards a fully-automated enterprise platform for drone-based digitalization.
When it comes to digitalization, the value for enterprises lies in the ability to quickly access actionable business intelligence based on the digital workflow. This is why, we have decided to bring the drone data and associated insights into Drone Harmony Cloud.
Consequently, the key evolution of Drone Harmony’s platform in 2020 will be the incorporation of captured and processed drone data. The Drone Harmony Cloud will be extended to support drone data storage. The web-based planning platform will include features enabling the visualization and navigation of captured data. This, in turn, will enable further planning of data acquisition, based on key insights revealed by the captured and overlaid data.
Additional drone platforms
With the introduction of Drone Harmony Cloud, we have created the necessary separation between our primary mission planing and flight execution tools. This separation is key for integrating the platform into enterprise workflows. In addition, this is an opportunity to enable users of a wider range of drone platforms to gain access to our products. In 2020 we will integrate Drone Harmony Cloud with a number of leading drone platforms, ranging from proprietary platforms, to ones based on open source standards, such as PX4.
The future of drone-based digitalization
Last but not least, we will keep on pushing the boundaries of our planning automation technology, making Drone Harmony the most attractive option on the market for enterprises seeking to reliably scale their drone-based digital workflows.
If there is one key new insight we have gained in 2019 it is the following: Most enterprises engaged in digital workflows for their infrastructure assets today already have descriptive data about their asset and environment and they are eager to use this in order to automate their workflows. This trend confirms our vision regarding the future of automation in this industry: It will rely on diverse and rich 3D complex data. In 2020, Drone Harmony will continue pushing this technology towards new standards of efficiency and automation.
