ARA Robotics has announced the development of Skymate, a commercial UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) flight controller built for multirotor configurations and dedicated to industrial applications such as 2D/3D aerial inspection and mapping. The new flight controller will be unveiled at the Xponential 2018 trade show in Denver, Colorado.

Skymate is the culmination of years of research and development and reflects ARA Robotics’ belief that innovation, reliability and safety should be the standard in all industrial drone operations. A dedicated mission managing software is included in the Skymate flight controller series, helping transform the planning, simulation and monitoring of complex missions, making them simple and repeatable.

“We are thrilled to introduce Skymate, our flight controller technology at XPONENTIAL 2018. It is the perfect opportunity for us to launch the product and to connect with industry leaders looking to unlock the tremendous economic benefits of UAV technology,” says Pascal Chiva-Bernard, CEO of ARA Robotics. “We believe Skymate to seamlessly combine advanced robotics technology and professional software tool kits, enabling the industry to foster the use of automated UAVs for aerial data gathering. The high-quality standards in our production supply chain guarantee product performance and reliability, offered at an affordable price to meet the commercial sector reality.”
