The next 5 years for Drones

Helen Greiner who co-founded iRobot 14 years ago spoke yesterday at the DEMO conference. Helen is now the co-founder and CEO of CyPhy Works, a startup developing flying robots or drones (not quite Unmanned Systems) for industrial applications. In her brief DEMO Labs talk (see video below), Helen takes us through the next five years of drones — from hobbyist toys to industrial surveillance and retail delivery. Helen indicates: “The next wave of robots will be flying robots.”

CyPhy Works

As Helen says: “Anywhere it is hard to get eyes to the right places, that is a good job for drones”
