Archon offers end-to-end multi-robot solutions that combine a proprietary artificial intelligence module, an advanced fleet of drones and special landing-docking plugin that turn every drone into a functioning rover.
Lightweight short-range drone
The lightweight short range (1Km) drone is particularly indicated for video surveillance and inspection of circumscribed areas. Equipped with flying cameras that allow the drone to pilot itself without the human help, it’s capable of flying and hovering both horizontally and vertically just like an helicopter, then safely land thanks to its motorized wheels.
Average takeoff and landing time of 10 minutes, and recharging time up to 30 minutes.
This long-range hybrid drone can fly up to 20 km of distance. With a weight of 10kg and a 2m wingspan, it can endure about 20 minutes of flying when used as a copter, and about 60 minutes as a plane. It requires the attachment of 3 multidirectional motorized wheels for landing.
Made of carbon fiber, fiberglass and kevlar, completely impact and weatherproof, it’s recommended for inspection and maintenance of areas like high voltage and pipelines.
UAV Docking Recharge Station
The new Archon recharging station allows safe landing and docking of UAVs within few minutes from the landing command. The top shield is automatically lifted to allow drones to dock safely. Completely weatherproof and upgradable with solar panels, it can be mounted on top of buildings or on any flat surfaces.
Customizable to host drones and rovers of different sizes and payload, it allows a recharging time of around 30 minutes, equivalent to standard AC line. If LTE network isn’t available, the station works as a server to connect the drone to the cloud interface.
The Rover, with a weight of 50-60kg is an all-terrain vehicle perfect for indoor activities like inspection and surveillance of establishments like electrical substations. It’s equipped with autonomous navigation, object tracking algorithms that use cameras and TOF sensors to avoid accidental collisions, advanced line following algorithms.It’s also equipped with SLAM technology for accurate mapping and localization of the vehicle.
