American Robotics, a subsidiary of Ondas Holdings, and Infrared Cameras Inc. (ICI) announced a strategic partnership. American Robotics will use ICI’s optical gas imaging (OGI) and thermal sensors in its autonomous Scout System.
The Scout System is an autonomous drone system involving Scout, the company’s AI-powered drone, Scoutbase, a weatherproof charging and edge computing station and Scoutview, a front-end fleet management and analytics software. ICI’s sensors will allow the Scout System to automate the inspection of oil and gas assets.
“American Robotics continues to see some of the oil and gas industry’s largest companies focus on integrating autonomous drones into their operations to conduct regular site inspections and ensure employee safety,” Reese Mozer, co-founder and CEO of American Robotics, said. “Through our strategic technology partnership with ICI, we continue to expand our product offerings with key features tailor-made for the oil and gas industry, enabling customers to automate inspections of critical assets such as tanks, pipes and pumps. Importantly, the solutions being developed in connection with our ICI partnership are designed to meet specific customer requests.”
