Delft Aerial Robotics (DAR) announces today that it has expanded its portfolio to include a new company, Birds.ai. Formerly known as Dutch UAS, Birds.ai has developed a revolutionary technology that provides a cost-effective way to monitor large areas, down to identifying and tracking individual objects.
Originally founded to combat poaching, the Birds.ai platform turns raw data gathered from aerial, ground, and space sensors into information that end users can act on (see attached photo). The potential applications of the Birds.ai platform are limitless, and will allow a wide range of users from industrial to environmental entities to manage their assets efficiently.
Birds.ai CEO Camiel Verschoor said: “The partnership between Birds.ai and DAR is valuable to bring the Birds.ai platform to market. DAR’s expertise, investment, and network will accelerate the technical development as well as the time to market of our platform.
DAR’s co-founder Lucas van Oostrum said: “We invested in Birds.ai because we believe their artificial intelligence algorithms will change the way we are able to manage large scale assets. Not only do they enhance aerial data by extracting location and health information of individual objects, but are also able to provide statistics through industry-specific reports.”
