Interdrone 2017 Keynote

Rio Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada
Brian Krzanich Keynote / CEO Intel Corporation

InterDrone is where the UAV industry comes together, bringing drone pilots, UAS engineers and developers, commercial drone service businesses, UAV manufacturers, drone videographers and enterprise UAV end-users.

CEO Brian Krzanich delivered the event’s Grand Keynote, where he unveiled Intel products to address critical steps of the unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) workflow, accelerating the path to generating actionable business insights.

In an end-to-end demonstration, Krzanich demonstrated Intel Mission Control software and the Intel Insight Platform. With the press of a button, Intel Mission Control software allowed Intel to fly the fully-automated mission, assisted by Intel indoor location technology for position. After the drone captured the data, Krzanich uploaded it to the Intel Insight cloud-based platform and demonstrated the feature of change detection. Once Krzanich generated the 2D model, he applied the change detection algorithm and the platform started a “tour,” much like a spell check function, that cycles through each of the changes detected in order, catching small anomalies. The advantage of this tool is that it allows inspectors to focus on just the areas reported where any change has occurred, which will save time and effort.
