Autonomous drone solutions for indoor environments


This movie producued by Makers Boot Camp

Spiral provide autonomous drone solutions for indoor environments, most notably during non-GPS situations. We use QR codes to simplify the drone mapping and flight plan system. The operator places QR codes on the walls and ceiling to construct the drone’s flight plan by position and time. This results in a trail of QR codes that is easy to create or modify while being visible to the human eye.

Right now we have potential customers which is real estate company owning large mall in Dubai and top leading construction company in Japan. And we are working towards the PoC with them.
Also, we develop the prototype with two partnership companies. First one is top leading system integration company in Japan. The other one is FLARE Dynamics which is hardware company having strength in making the small size drone.

Spiral’s solution to autonomous drone flight provides a user-friendly experience for drone operators around the world while cutting costs by up to 60% compared to traditional SLAM solutions. We are the ONLY company denying current autonomous flight system for indoor drone.
