Ondas Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq:ONDS), a leading provider of private wireless data, drone and automated data solutions through its wholly owned subsidiaries, Ondas Networks Inc. and American Robotics, Inc. (“American Robotics” or “AR”), announced today that American Robotics is adding new artificial intelligence anomaly detection capabilities to its autonomous Scout System drone. Loss of containment capabilities will enable oil and gas customers to minimize environmental risks, clean-up costs, fines, and litigation expenses. This new analytics feature is the first being introduced in connection with our strategic partnership with Dynam.AI, a leading edge provider of AI/ML development tools and services. Additional software-driven data analytics features targeted for the O&G markets are expected to be introduced in the second half of 2022.
“On the heels of our announcement of new high-resolution RGB and thermal camera payloads, American Robotics continues to enhance our offerings for current and future customers in the oil and gas industry,” said Reese Mozer, co-founder and CEO of American Robotics. “This analytics feature is the first to be announced from our industry-optimized product roadmap put in place early last year. We have worked closely with our customers to define these requirements on route to fleet deployments, and we are grateful for their partnership.”
The loss of containment analytics feature will accelerate early detection and location of crude oil leaks before they become critical to customers by providing frequent, autonomous inspections of oil and gas pumpjacks, heater treaters, tanks, pipes, pumps, and more via the autonomous Scout System. Autonomous drones have become a crucial component to ensuring safety and conducting regular inspections within the oil and gas industry. Through artificial intelligence anomaly detection capabilities tailor-made for the oil and gas industry, American Robotics is providing customers with the tools they need to reduce reputational risk resulting in loss of revenue and brand value, while minimizing environmental risk and costs associated with clean-ups.
A recent Market Research Future report predicted that the market size for drones in the oil and gas industry is projected to be worth over $23 billion by 2027. By continuing to add new features to its Scout System specifically for the oil and gas industry, American Robotics is further establishing itself as the market-leading autonomous drone-in-a-box (DIB) solution for the oil and gas sector. Combined with the high-resolution thermal and RGB camera payloads, the loss of containment analytics feature deepens and expands American Robotics’ competitive differentiation within the oil and gas vertical.
A prototype of the loss of containment analytics feature is targeted for release in Q3 2022. To learn more about American Robotics and its Scout System drone, click here.
