Drone Harmony 2019 – an outlook

In 2019 Drone Harmony will continue to push boundaries of automation. As new markets start to adopt drone technology at scale, the need for repeatable, robust workflows will drive the drone technology market.

Demand for process automation is higher than ever before and this trend is only likely to accelerate as more demand for drone data will come from complex use cases and environments.


The role of your data

A drone is an excellent tool for generating data around a vertical  infrastructure asset, such as a cell tower, or a building. Whether it is consumed raw out of the camera, or undergoes additional transformation (3d modelling, report generation etc.) to generate business intelligence, the quality of this data determines the value the drone-based digital workflow has for the business.

This same pivotal role that drone data plays is the reason why Drone Harmony takes a broader approach to the role of data in automating drone workflows. This approach stems from the inevitability that to generate quality drone data automatically, you have to use accurate 3d data about the asset and its’ environment, just like self-driving cars need to have a great understanding of the shape of the road and other vehicles on the road to navigate safely. The sources of such data range from maps and DEMs to full meshed or CAD models for the asset. In fact, the drone data itself and its derivatives, captured perhaps at earlier time, can serve as an excellent 3d representation for the purpose of mission planning.

In 2019 Drone Harmony will continue to improve the value for its customers by further automating the mission planning workflow through the seamless integration of 2- and 3d data platforms in the planning workflow.

Drone Harmony is expanding to new platforms

As Drone Harmony transitions from being a mission planner to becoming a data platform directly interacting with both down- and upstream pieces in the digital workflow, it becomes necessary to expand the scope of computational platforms that run it. Therefore, we are excited to announce that early 2019 will see the release of Drone Harmony’s web-based desktop application. The web-based application will not only introduce Drone Harmony’s Customers to a new interface for mission planning, but will also comprise a powerful computational platform enabling a myriad of new capabilities designed to generate better drone data in a robust and reliable way.

A final prediction

We predict that 2019 will be a breakthrough year for the industrial drone market, in which many new industries will include drones at scale in their digital workflows. This transition will be triggered by increased robustness of drone-based workflows, driven by unprecedented strides in process automation, in which Drone Harmony will play an important role.


Business intelligence derived from drone data is only as good as the data that is used to generate it.

What our customers say

Drone harmony would have to be the best equipped flight planning app I've ever used. It works perfectly for vertical and complex structures, along with a large number of mission types to achieve the best results for your target asset.

Danny Elassad, Chief Remote Pilot, Hoverscape

Drone Harmony is the best Flight Planning Platform I've used to cover the dynamic terrain of our mining business with it's Terrain Following feature.

Muhammad Ilyas, Deputy Manager Mine Planning, Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company (SECMC)

Amazing app, easy to use and powerful. Offers all the things I need for scene inspection of many kinds (towers, antennas, construction sites, private residential zones, etc...). Also good mapping grids and parameters setting.

Jose Benitez, Co-Founder, TucanoRobotics

Excellent application, it is worth going for the paid version. It works perfectly, even with simple drones like DJI Spark.

Luis Eduardo Cuevas Correa, Founder, Lekazo

Obtaining a point cloud of the entire site in a few hours using a drone is a huge benefit to the schedule and the budget.

Jesse Creech, VDC Coordinator, Brasfield & Gorrie

Drone Harmony proved itself admirably, and we achieved in automated flight what would have taken enormous risk and complexity in manual flight.

Michael Appleyard, CEO, Drone Inspection WA

Setting up our missions in Drone Harmony has been easy thanks to great tutorials and excellent support from the Drone Harmony Team. Thank you!

Dwayne Marx, Founder

With the Drone Harmony application data acquisition was consistent, the flight patterns and automation provided us with consistent high-quality models for the purposes of tower inspections.

Stanley du Toit, Solution Architect, The iGlobe Group
