Our Story

archon-our-history

Archon is an italian company, working with customers worldwide, specialized in providing automated operations with UAVs and Rover robots.

Archon approach combines the field of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) technology to that of artificial intelligence and robotics. Its aim is to offer a more efficient and fully automatized set of services potentially addressing all existing and future needs of efficient video/photo imaging, both in private, industrial and urban setting (visualization, monitoring, inspection, alarm response, aerial photography, etc.).

The idea of Archon stems from almost 10 years of expertise on robotics, physics, mathematics and engineering. 

We work toward a future scenario where many repetitive, complex or dangerous operations will be efficiently and automatically performed by robots. Activities will be planned, scheduled and organized with the same ease with which nowadays we select flight preferences on travel websites, and then monitored with a high degree of precision.
