One operating system for  many drones

Operate drones from different manufacturers, for different workflows, with the same user experience.

Automated workflows

It’s not about manually
flying drones

Commercial drone applications such as mapping a construction site or inspecting a powerline, are about capturing data. Today the entire process of flying a drone, collecting, transferring and analyzing data is very manual.

It’s about automatically
transferring data

Auterion enables automated workflows for many different drones and use cases, bringing data in real-time from the field to your office. As a result you improve your efficiency, save time and mitigate risk.

Auterion software

To enable automated workflows, Auterion unifies software connecting the user, the drone and the cloud.
