Drone services market is forecasted to become 63.6 b$ by 2025. UAVs’ data processing poses Big Data and IoT challenges by the requirement for analysis of non-standard IoT data including imagery and videos files and streams. This makes necessary specific Edge and Cloud mechanisms for data management and processing, also tools and mechanisms to automate the deployment of software tools at UAV, Edge and Cloud, as well as, specific AGVs services linked to data acquisition, processing and management.
Through I-FLY, UAV providers will be able to buy and deploy different types of IT Software services over distributed UAV, Edge and Clouds, and data management workflows, to complement their current offering while creating a company portfolio for on-demand inspections. In addition, Critical Infrastructure owners and operators can contract and deploy these services in their own UAV fleet in an easy and fast way.
- Storage and tagging of video/photos
- On-demand video for alerts and incidences
- 3D cloud image creation
- Terrain overflight including history
- Anomaly detection
- GIS-based representation of alerts and incidences
- Data fusion for alerts with natural language interface
I-FLY will leverage in existing EIT Digital E-FLY project which combined distributed (UAV, Edge and Cloud) AI-enabled image processing for detection of incidents in gas pipeline infrastructures.
I-FLY generalizes E-FLY results by providing beyond state-of-the-art tools for the deployment automatization of different types of IT services on a user friendly marketplace to enable timely data analytics as well as smooth integration into IT-systems.
