Who we are

We develop innovative end-to-end data solutions for the infrastructure and mining industries.

Our vision is to automate the collection and analysis of data in challenging GPS-denied environments, delivering revolutionary efficiency, safety and operational insights to underground mining and other industries. Our core areas of expertise are drone autonomy, SLAM-based LiDAR mapping and data analytics.

Hovermap - our award winning drone autonomy technology

Hovermap is a LiDAR mapping and autonomy payload for industrial drones. It offers revolutionary efficiency, safety and operational insights to challenging above ground, underground and GPS-denied environments.

It provides collision avoidance, GPS-denied flight, advanced autonomy and SLAM-based LiDAR mapping. This allows a Hovermap-enabled drone to be deployed in challenging GPS-denied environments, to collect 3D and other data which was previously impossible to collect. This new data in turn leads to new insights.

Underground mines, tunnels, bridges, telecom and transmission towers and many more can now be mapped and inspected safely, without putting humans at risk.

Collision avoidance and autonomy

Omni-directional LiDAR-based collision avoidance keeps the drone safe while flying up-close to structures to inspect them. Advanced autonomy allows beyond line-of-sight mission execution in GPS-denied environments.

GPS-denied flight

Allows flying indoors, underground or under bridges.

SLAM-based 3D LiDAR mapping

SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping) allows mapping even when GPS is unavailable.
