The mining industry has been one of the fastest to integrate autonomous drone technology into operations at scale.


Automatic aerial data

Lower cost surveys, more accurate inventory assessment and improved security have driven not only adoption, but process innovation. Today, the availability and expense of human pilots represent the largest barrier to further advancement.

Percepto’s autonomous drones with machine vision capabilities provide continuous aerial data to mine personnel around the globe, making it easier and faster for them to survey and analyze mining sites.

Upon deployment, operational costs are a little more than electricity, enabling daily assessment of inventory, routine inspections of equipment, and advanced modeling and forecasting of production.
