In order to focus on pursuing innovative technologies in the commercial drone market, Intel has announced to ramp up the production of Falcon 8+ System for North America. Developed with safety, precision, and performance in mind, the drone is an ideal suit for industrial inspection and close mapping applications. The integration of advanced technologies into UAVs makes these tools indispensable and help in transforming the business or even in saving lives.
Carrying out inspection and surveys through conventional methods may result into revenue loss, hours of downtime or delayed work. Sometimes, it may even increase the risk of injury for the inspectors and surveyors while they are accessing hard-to-reach places like cell towers, bridges, and wind turbines. In order to address such challenges, a drone can capture the required aerial data in just 15 minutes. Besides, its ease of use allows the delivery of high ROI from the first flight.

For instance, oil rig inspections are usually dangerous and time-consuming but with the deployment of an aerial drone businesses can carry out dozens of tasks like aerial surveying/mapping, inspection, progress reporting while improving productivity and ensuring the safety of the workers.
Moving on, the Intel Falcon 8+ System sets a new standard for the commercial-grade drones. It is rugged enough to work in high winds and carries resistance to magnetic field disturbances for data accuracy. Further, it also features electronic system redundancy such as autopilot and battery redundancies. The system also renders detailed images down to millimeter resolution thereby offering operators opportunities to efficiently generate valuable aerial precision data.
Intel expands the boundaries of technology to make the most amazing experiences possible.
