Smart tele-reading of meters in urban environment with Archon drones

The first phase of a project in collaboration with the multi-utility CAP group has just been completed, featuring a drone weighting only 300 grams flying all over a town in Italy and collecting real-time usage data from meters.

Previously, human operators had to drive and locate themselves within range of transmission of the meters, spending days to map the whole town.
CAP and Archon are working towards a phase-2 of the project where the flights will be autonomous and will leverage a recharge station infrastructure.

TV coverage (in Italian) from Rai (minute 20:30) and Sky.
