According to wfmz.com, by employing drones to automate indoor disinfection processes, businesses can quickly and safely disinfect their buildings with little to no downtime.
Based in Ottawa, Smartcone Technologies and close to Toronto, Clarion Drone Academy, are teaming up to supply safe rapid deployment of drones for such practice. From factories to tech parks and office buildings, shutdowns for full-service cleaning and disinfection are timely and costly and now with social-distancing far more difficult.
SmartCone will set up safe zones for take-off and landing to include LiDAR tripwires that will notify both the intruder and Clarion operators if anyone is entering the operational zone. Further development is underway for a semi-autonomous deployment by integrating SmartCone Constellation, a high accuracy indoor positioning system (IPS). This IPS is a network of devices for location tracking inside buildings and/or where GPS lack precision or fail. By enabling connectivity with LTE or Wi-Fi, authorized workers can visually track where and when disinfection has occurred, giving peace of mind.
From portable temporary set ups to permanent installations for ongoing service, Smartcone offer this rapid disinfecting solution that does not put any additional people in harms way as part of their closed loop “Return to Work” solution.
Advanced trials will take place in May in Ottawa Valley, Canada. Health and safety officers will be in attendance to validate disinfection coverage range & accuracy.
