If you’ve ever wondered how drones are used on a public safety mission, the new Skydio video series is well worth a look. In Episode 1 The Fire, a 3-minute video explains exactly how and in which situations a Skydio drone is used by first responders: shows the results, explains the sensors used and describes the use by various stakeholders. Through the story of a chemical fire, the short film provides a real context for drone technology in public safety.
Skydio’s autonomous drones provide a unique tool for first responders that reduces the cognitive load required to fly less autonomous platforms – a key benefit in a crisis. In recent years, US-based Skydio has joined the First Responder and Public Safety community: as a DRONERESPONDERS partner and corporate sponsor and through its partnership with Axon, a top provider of law enforcement technology.
Skydio has worked hard to promote its autonomous platforms and sponsor webinars and demonstrations around the world. This new Skydio video series offers an up close look at a Skydio X2 at work and manages to tell a compelling story in just 3 minutes.
Check out Episode 1: The Fire here at Skydio to see a drone in action in the challenging conditions that first responders face every day.
