The recent InterDrone 2017 event witnessed the introduction of Intel Insight Platform. The aim is to address the critical steps of the unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) workflow which will help in accelerating the path to actionable business insights.
The announced solution is a cloud-based data processing, analytics and reporting service that enables customers to store, share and manage the rich data that commercial drone system provide. The platform will aid in harnessing data collected during a drone flight to unlock business value.
Developed in partnership with DELAIR, the platform will cater to a wide range of commercial applications including inspection and surveying in construction, mining, precision agriculture, oil, and gas, etc. It can perform a lot of functions like generating 2D and 3D models, taking measurements, making annotations, and running advanced data analytics.

Commercial drone technology is positioned to address real-world business challenges by enabling regular access to aerial data with Intel technology poised to contribute significantly to this transformation through its innovative hardware platforms, computing, automation and services for the growing drone ecosystem.
In addition to existing strategic engagements with companies such as Topcon, Airbus* and Volocopter, Intel has expanded its ecosystem relationships to include DELAIR, Honeywell*, Pix4D*, Bentley*, Cyberhawk, Aeroprotechnik and HUVRdata among many others, to bring this incredible new platform to the market.
Through these new technologies and solutions, Intel is accelerating innovation to create meaningful products for its public safety partners. Today, Intel announced a program with the California-based Menlo Park Fire Protection District to support its continued research and utilization of drone platforms to further evaluate how UAVs can enhance and improve emergency response and critical responder situational awareness.
Intel continues to invest in technologies and solutions that transform the commercial drone ecosystem, demonstrating how drones can be used in productive and exciting ways, making amazing experiences possible, now and in the future.
