To drone AWRA της Robotto, συνδυάζοντας τη σύγχρονη τεχνολογία με την τεχνητή νοημοσύνη, προσφέρει νέες δυνατότητες στην ροή πληροφοριών για την επίγνωση της κατάστασης (situational awareness) του περιβάλλοντος κατάστασης των δασικών πυρκαγιών…

[…Nominated for several awards in different fields including sustainability and innovation, startup Robotto, a spinoff of a full-year bachelor thesis in Robotics at Aalborg University, Denmark, believes the implementation of smart, autonomous technology in the world of firefighting still lags. Consequently, firefighters “stay on defense rather than offense – leaving them in a reactionary position, unable to utilize their resources efficiently.” To help firefighters stay one step ahead and help reduce the impact forest fires have on biodiversity, Robotto developed the AWRA (Autonomous Wildfire Recognition and Analytics) drone. What started as “a willingness to make a difference for the environment and to influence the current climate change in a positive way” from a university’s engineering group, the AWRA drone is now a sophisticated product that combines artificial intelligence and robotics. Designed to fly up to 120 meters with a battery life of 40 minutes, Robotto’s drone maps and surveys desired areas, providing the needed data for wildfires, like the direction of spread and the attacked area, and autonomously transferring that data onto a map with both optical and thermal imagery. By giving firefighters data when and where they need it, AWRA provides them a better fighting chance and situational awareness to operate most efficiently…]
