Swarmsense: Intelligent UAV Swarms

AI-Powered Modular Drone Swarms for Industrial and Military Applications

Reduce mission time and increase the efficiency of your UAV operations today with one operator and multiple drones. Deploy SwarmSense to quickly and easily inspect large transportation networks and bridges. Task SwarmSense drones to search a defined area, find missing persons or wounded soldiers, drop supplies, and patrol the perimeter to detect threats. SwarmSense can accomplish dynamic missions that may be difficult for a single drone, especially if the mission is time sensitive or covers a large area. With minimal hardware modifications, SwarmSense enables drones to be swarm capable and autonomously solve complex tasks together without time-consuming pre-flight planning or manual piloting.

 

MODULAR SWARM SYSTEM

  • Scalable and customizable groundbreaking software + hardware system that uses cutting-edge AI, machine vision and mesh networking to accomplish a wide range of dynamic missions that may not be possible for a single drone
  • Start from scratch with our baseline SwarmSense system using the Yuneec H520 or integrate our SenseSense payload into your own fleet of drones

AUTONOMOUS POINT-AND-CLICK OPERATIONS

 

  • User-friendly mission planning and execution for fully autonomous flights– no pilots needed
  • Have full, real-time control and the ability to constantly communicate, monitor, correct, and manage the entire swarm operation while in flight
  • SwarmSense Ground Control System (GCS) consists of a laptop/tablet running a QGroundControl module customized for SwarmSense drones
  • Runs on Windows, OS X, Linux platforms, iOS and Android devices
  • Flight support for vehicles running PX4 and ArduPilot (or any other autopilot that communicates using the MAVLink protocol)

PRODUCT DETAILS

Increase the scale, speed, and efficiency of your UAV operations

SwarmSense is a fully autonomous, completely distributed, and self-healing system that allows multiple drones to autonomously solve complex tasks together. Through our bio-inspired algorithms, SwarmSense can efficiently share information, allocate mission objectives, and collaboratively react to dynamic environments with minimal operator intervention. SwarmSense is the most reliable drone swarm solution because of its patented self healing capabilities. If one of the drones loses connection, the hole in the communication network is immediately detected and repaired by a surrounding node taking its place to reestablish connection. Completely organic and fluid, SwarmSense does this autonomously without the operator having to instruct which drones to go where.

  • AI self-monitors communication quality for maintaining reachability to every drone (patented)
  • AI self-detects possible swarm misbehavior and navigation malfunctioning (patented)
  • RF-based drone-to-drone collision avoidance algorithms (patented)
  • AI-powered machine vision processing for obstacle avoidance, detection, classification, and tracking
  • Automated multi-done tasking capabilities for a fully autonomous operation
  • On-demand, toggle between manual and autonomous control
  • Capable of both pre-planned flying and self-flying
