Drone Technology Offering High-Precision Data Aids Autonomous Vehicle Operation

Skycatch has developed technology capable of providing repeatable, high-precision data which can help OEMs enable autonomous operation.


On this week’s episode of OEM Industry Update, editor Sara Jensen speaks with Christian Sanz, the founder and CEO of Skycatch, a company which is developing technology for use in drones which can create repeatable, high-precision data. Information captured by the drone can be fed back to a fleet office to create models of the job site or sent to a piece of autonomous equipment to help map its route. In the future, the company is looking to offer this technology for integration directly into a piece of equipment to enable autonomous operation.
