How do you go from a 1 drone, 1 pilot proof of concept, to operating a fleet of 100 drones? How do you measure the ROI from the perspective of an early adopter of drone or UAV technologies, and how do you scale your operations to maintain the same level of safety, reliability, and productivity, without drastically increasing your headcount? Can 1 pilot fly 100 drones? In this session, we explore the current strategies on how companies who have completed their first drone trial scale their operations under one roof, utilising a mixture of Cloud Computing, Cellular Networks, and Computer Vision. We will explore 4 case studies: a Palm Oil Plantation that has a drone for every 1,000 hectares, a Facilities Management team for an Oil & Gas conglomerate, a Security Command Center watching over dozens of property with drone patrol, and a Hospital tiering its medical delivery network for life-critical drugs, devices, and specimens.
