Redefining Drone Safety and Autonomous Operation for Indoor Commercial Applications

Project description

The sky is the limit for new indoor drone

A cross between a quadcopter and a blimp, a new type of drone – an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) – is about to take off. The EU-funded Skye project aims to deliver a commercial drone designed to operate indoors. It will be the first UAV to solve two problems common for indoor flying drones. The first is the risk of collision and/or injury. The second is the fully autonomous operation. Set to revolutionise the commercial drone market, Skye UAV has a redundant propulsion system to fly safely above crowds and minimise impact in case of system failure. For instance, collision prevention is made possible thanks to the helium-filled hull and redundant propulsion system. Also, higher flight duration is possible due to the smaller and more powerful air impellers.
