In light of the current global events, most of the human workforce is confined to their homes and there is an urgent need for automated solutions for various business needs. Perimeter security and asset monitoring have traditionally been manual operations that are quite labor intensive. Drones are fast emerging as a potential option to challenge the status quo.
Enterprises of all sizes need effective solutions for securing and protecting their assets. Drones, coupled with intelligent software, provide these businesses a very compelling fully-automated solution to efficiently keep an eye on their assets 24×7. The key components of such an automated solution include, a reliable drone hardware, a drone-in-a-box system that can be used for automated docking and charging of the drone after every flight, and smart software solution that automates the complete workflow, integrates with various enterprise applications and provides an easy-to-use interface to the relevant stakeholders.
While drone-based security solutions have been around for the last 4+ years, their adoption has been modest at best, due to the following key challenges:
- Very expensive hardware and complex setup
- Lack of reliability and poor overall performance
- Lack of support for low-cost and reliable off-the-shelf drones, like DJI Mavic
- Poor availability and long lead-times of hardware, as they are usually built on demand
- Non-standard interfaces; difficult to integrate with various enterprise applications
With recent advances in technology (hardware and software), it is now possible to deploy these systems at 1/10th the cost and with far higher levels of reliability and performance. Further, open-interfaces and standards allow the users to easily integrate, scale and upgrade these systems, as and when required.
