EagleView & Skydio join an exclusive property inspection partnership for automated residential roof inspection with drones, which leverages AI autonomous drone technology to boost virtual inspection quality to property inspections, while lowering costs.
It is estimated that this partnership may be the largest commercial drone contract ever!
A press release explained:
“This is part of a multi-year, multi-million-dollar exclusive partnership to deliver Skydio House Scan™ to several major country markets. The partnership brings the power of precision drone technology and AI to insurance carriers, claims adjusters, and government bodies and will result in the largest ever commercial drone deployment with thousands of units deployed.”*
EagleView is a leading technology provider of aerial imagery, data analytics, and GIS solutions, while Skydio is the leading U.S. drone manufacturer and world leader in autonomous flight.
The Skydio 2 drone technology with Skydio House Scan software, enables an intuitive flight experience by having autonomous data capture residential roofs with precision as it provides exceptional image clarity and thorough knowledge of properties. The result of the partnership is that EagleView and Skydio provide an inspection for consistent and comprehensive assessment of properties.
Chris Jurasek, CEO of EagleView, stated:
“EagleView is excited to partner with Skydio to deliver breakthrough innovation for residential roof inspection that puts autonomous drone technology and unparalleled image quality to work for our customers. EagleView’s images are already 16 times clearer than those of satellites, and, with Skydio’s drones, you’ll be able to not only spot a dime on the roof but see the face of Franklin D. Roosevelt stamped on it. This partnership allows customers to confidently make decisions while lowering costs.”*
The CEO of Skydio, Adam Bry, enthusiastically shared:
“We are excited to partner with EagleView to revolutionize the residential roof inspection market through the power of autonomous drones and AI. Together with EagleView, we provide insurance carriers, claims adjusters, construction companies, and government bodies with a first-of-its-kind integrated solution that automates the entire inspection process. Thanks to the unique flight autonomy capabilities of Skydio drones, we are able to enhance virtual property inspections, delivering exceptional accuracy, consistency, and image quality.”*
The new contract is part of a new product launch for EagleView, which is called, “EagleView Assess,” and which will continue to expand in metropolitan areas, initially, but will be followed by greater coverage in rural areas as well.
Skydio’s and EagleView’s partnership is significant in the drone industry, not only because of its size, but also because it may introduce commercial drones in the context of the homes of many citizens around the country.
The multi-year, multi-million-dollar exclusive partnership between Skydio & EagleView will benefit not only metropolitan areas, but also several major country markets. This partnership brings the power of precision drone technology and AI to insurance carriers, claims adjusters, and government bodies and will likely result in thousands of units deployed — the largest ever commercial drone deployment!
