ideaForge Technology Inc. is set to integrate artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities into its drones for public safety and security applications, in a new partnership with U.S.-based AI solutions company Skylark Labs. 

The collaboration aims to revolutionize public safety operations by integrating cutting-edge proprietary self-evolving AI technology into drones. This will provide the drones with the ability to autonomously detect and identify suspicious weapons, persons, vehicles, fires, and smoke in real-time. 

Leveraging Skylark Lab’s expertise in AI, the drone-based solution will act as a force multiplier to enhance situational awareness for first responders and security personnel, enabling them to effectively ensure public safety and security in urban and rural areas.

The ideaForge/Skylark solution utilizes ideaForge’s BlueFire Touch Ground Control Software, which ensures seamless delivery of real-time analytics without the necessity for cloud processing or internet connectivity, even in remote areas. The drone, combined with Skylark’s ARIES platform, can detect and identify suspicious items, persons and dangerous situations for enhanced monitoring capabilities.

The deployment of ideaForge/Skylark AI-integrated drones is a pivotal component of ideaForge’s comprehensive Public Safety solution, complementing flagship products to include SWITCH UAV and NETRA V4 PRO UAV. These UAVs offer a suite of autonomous features, including advanced detection of weapons, suspicious persons and vehicles, as well as fires and smoke. 

ideaForge assert that the SWITCH and NETRA V4 PRO UAVs exemplify the company’s dedication to public safety, regulatory compliance, and industry-leading performance. Notably, these UAVs boast low sound emissions and flight times exceeding 90 minutes, making them ideal for persistent monitoring applications in public safety operations.

The ideaForge/Skylark public safety partnership sets out to offer a powerful and critical tool for police, firefighters, and other first responder agencies, rapidly identifying threats or hazards and keeping communities safe.

Mr. Ankit Mehta, CEO of ideaForge Technology Limited, commented; “Our partnership with Skylark Labs signifies a pivotal step forward in our dedication to advancing public safety capabilities.

“By integrating Skylark’s proprietary self-evolving AI capabilities into ideaForge’s drones, agencies will finally have the most advanced and powerful tools to enhance operational efficiency and effectiveness in maintaining public safety, by rapidly identifying potential threats.”

Dr. Amarjot Singh, Founder and CEO of Skylark Labs AI, added; “This partnership enables public safety agencies to use real-time data to monitor vast areas for potential threats and hazards.

“Skylark’s self-evolving AI technology adapts on the drone itself, shortening the software update cycle. We are excited to partner with ideaForge to bring our cutting-edge AI capabilities to their advanced drone platforms, to revolutionize public safety operations.”
