Elios is the first collision-tolerant drone, designed for the inspection and exploration of the most inaccessible places. Allowing for the first time to fly in complex, cluttered or indoor spaces, Elios unleashes the potential of UAVs in numerous applications where their use was previously too dangerous or simply impossible. Inspired by the ability of insects to keep their stability after an in-flight collision, the flight concept of Elios is the result of hundreds of millions of years of natural evolution. Using a unique and pragmatic approach, Elios solves the biggest challenges of flying drones indoor in complex and confined spaces or in contact with humans: the risk of collisions and injuries. Privileging tolerance to collisions over the attempt to sense and avoid obstacles, Elios provides the level of reliability that is expected by professionals operating in environments where failure to operate is not an option.
Elios is equipped with a cutting-edge wireless communication system that provides a live video feedback allowing the pilot to bring the drone to the most inaccessible places up to multiple hundreds of meters beyond line of sight.Elios Ground Station is composed of a remote controller, a tablet and a purpose designed ground control application providing the pilot with live telemetry data, an SD live video stream captured by Elios, and the information and controls that you need to operate it efficiently and safely.
We made Elios dust and splash resistant, operational in environments between 0° and 50°C, and mistake tolerant so that it can be easily piloted by everyone. Operational after a few hours of training, your personnel will quickly get up to speed with their piloting skills. Designed to fly indoors where few or no drone regulations apply, Elios will be smoothly integrated into your workflow.
