From today Dutch UAS officially partners with Delft Aerial Robotics (DAR). Under the name Birds.ai, Dutch UAS will continue to work on revolutionary technology that provides a cost effective solution for managing large areas, down to identifying and tracking individual objects. They do this by detecting, classifying and tracking of individual objects, such as animals, crops and cars possible.
The Birds.ai platform, which was originally developed to combat poaching, is unique worldwide for its smart image recognition software for aerial images. The software seeks through large amount of aerial images of among other things drones, to automatically find objects. The potential applications of the Birds.ai platform are limitless, and will allow a wide range of users from industrial to environmental entities to manage their assets efficiently.
Birds.ai CEO Camiel R. Verschoor said:
“The partnership between Birds.ai and DAR is valuable to bring the Birds.ai platform to market. DAR’s expertise, investment, and network will accelerate the technical development as well as the time to market of our platform. By analysing aerial images automatically, we empower industries to survey large areas efficiently. For example, we can provide farmers in Australia and South America with current statistics of their cattle.”
DAR’s co-founder Lucas van Oostrum said:
“We invested in Birds.ai because we believe their artificial intelligence algorithms will change the way we are able to manage large scale assets. Not only do they enhance aerial data by extracting location and health information of individual objects, but are also able to provide statistics through industry-specific reports.”
About Birds.ai: The mission of Birds.ai is to give the industry worldwide the means to effectively use and understand aerial data. The Birds.ai platform helps end users identify, track and monitor individual objects in large areas and generate key statistics about these objects. Birds.ai is unique in developing artificial intelligence algorithms that are able to shine light on aerial data.
About Delft Aerial Robotics: Delft Aerial Robotics (DAR)’s mission is to fully automate the drone workflow. DAR invests in an ecosystem of startups, researchers, and industry professionals in order to take the human completely out of the loop. It is a proud member of RoboValley, an initiative to encourage robotics innovation by coordinating efforts between public, private, and academic entities.
