Modi’in, Israel April 29th 2021. Percepto, pioneering autonomous inspection by industrial robotics announced today that their Percepto Autonomous Inspection and Monitoring (AIM) platform won a Gold Edison Award. Named after Thomas Alva Edison, the Edison Awards have recognized and honored some of the most innovative new products, services, and business leaders in the world since 1987.
Percepto’s Autonomous Inspection & Monitoring (AIM) platform, launched in November, sets a new standard for how critical infrastructure and assets are monitored, end-to-end, paving the way for the remote operations center of the future. Operating a fleet of third party robots alongside their autonomous Sparrow drone, Percepto AIM provides visual data management and analysis to report trends and anomalies and to alert of risks. The first robot to be integrated with the platform was Boston Dynamics’ Spot®. Any member of staff can request data and Percepto AIM will deploy the most suitable robot independently without human accompaniment to retrieve and stream the required data. The platform also seamlessly reports to assess risk, minimize downtime, drive efficiency and reduce operational costs without human intervention.
“It is an honor for Percepto to be the recipient of such a prestigious award, following in the footsteps of so many game-changing technologies paving the way for the future.” Said Dor Abuhasira, CEO and Co-founder, Percepto. “Percepto are proud to be driving the automation of inspection and monitoring for industrial sites and critical infrastructure, boosting efficiency and enhancing safety for our Fortune 500 customers globally.”
Percepto Autonomous Inspection and Monitoring (AIM) platform was chosen as the 2021 gold award winner by a panel of judges comprised of more than 3,000 senior business executives and academics.
“We were very impressed by the level of collaboration and discovery in this year’s entries,” said Edison Universe Executive Director Frank Bonafilia. “Somehow, while facing the unprecedented challenges of this global pandemic, companies around the world figured out how to work safely and smartly and still innovate at an award-winning level.”
Percepto is at the forefront of redefining how industrial sites and critical infrastructure are holistically inspected and monitored, harnessing remote robotics to autonomously collect, aggregate and analyze visual data.
Leveraging its experience with Percepto Sparrow, the most deployed drone-in-a-box solution on the market, the company introduced Percepto AIM (Autonomous Inspection and Monitoring), the first end-to-end autonomous inspection and monitoring platform. Percepto AIM empowers the remote operation center of the future to assess risk, minimize downtime, drive efficiency, increase safety and reduce operational costs.
