Connected Drone Presentation

The Connected Drone solution helps capture and analyze data from remote, spread out or hazardous environments by leveraging the ADDS platform in order to generate meaningful business insights which enable efficient, safe, and cost-effective operations and service management. The solution takes advantage of cameras and sensors embedded on drones to gather required field data on which Applied Intelligence such as image/video analytics is used. The image/video analytics leverages computer vision and machine learning algorithms that are trained to learn specific patterns/defects or compute data. The algorithms are created and customized to adapt as per the use case/industries.

In addition to ADDS Core services, the Connected Drone solution is composed of 2 dedicated tools:

The Drone Uploader is a "Desktop application" (installed locally) that offers both online and offline features and enables to import media items (images, videos) captured by a drone and automatically organizes those items into “missions”. The missions can then be published on ADDS where they can be managed and analyzed (e.g. mapping, analytics, etc.)

The Computer Vision is a set of highly trained servers with advanced deep learning capacities that detect all instances of a pattern/object/defect in pictures or videos. The workflow to implement analytics in ADDS is made up of two steps that consist of training the algorithm until it reaches an acceptable threshold of precision and processing all new imagery (pictures/videos) in order to detect patterns learned.

Connected Drone Workflow

Connected Drone Modules

ADDS Drone Uploader MEDIA IMPORT
  • User imports data from SD external drive to the Drone Uploader application
  • Different type of media can be added such as images and videos
  • Medias will be automatically dispatched into missions and cameras
MISSION MANAGEMENT
  • User can search and view existing missions, their details and respective status
  • User can create or update mission: mission title, camera assignments, medias assignment, flight plan details
UPLOAD
  • User uploads missions in ADDS for missions to be analyzed and get reports such 3D models, Computer Vision analysis, ...
ADDS Computer Vision DATASET MANAGEMENT
  • Import datasets of images
  • Manage labels and annotations on images
  • Concurrent annotations by multiple users
  • Review & validate the datasets
MODELS / NEURAL NETWORKS MANAGEMENT
  • Import your own models (already trained or not) and create new scenarios
  • Reuse the existing models from our extensible library in order to speed up onboarding
  • Run training to improve the performance of the analysis. User can view check point of the training
  • Review of what have been detected and what should have been detected
OBJECT DETECTION
  • Users can process new data in batch mode in order to detect objects/defects
  • Users can process new data with live detection to get immediate response of the analysis and objects/defects detection
USER MANAGEMENT & REPORTING
  • Ability to manage users and assign rights to scenarios & models
  • Ability to generate QR code & API key for easier authentication
ADDS Backend Manager B2C USER EXPERIENCE

Set of modules focused on the creation of, or integration with the user experience for how content is accessed and consumed through B2C distribution.

CONTENT MANAGEMENT & DELIVERY

Modules focused on ingesting fragmented client data sources, transforming these into the right format, packaging these up into assets and delivering them to an endpoint.

BUSINESS RULES PLATFORM

Modules providing the intelligence and governance of how content is distributed be that through rights, scheduling or other complex business logic.

MONITORING, REPORTING & ANALYTICS

A set of APIs that can be used to retrieve metadata that can be then ingested in an Analytics/Reporting platform.

B2B DIGITAL RETAILER PLUG IN

Modules that manage the specific requirements of retailers or client specific endpoints when distributing content B2B
