Carbonix has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Hitachi Vantara, a global specialist in providing intelligent data platforms, infrastructure systems and digital expertise.
With Hitachi Vantara taking delivery of a Volanti – Carbonix’s advanced all-electric fixed-wing uncrewed aerial vehicles (UAV) – earlier this week, the strategic partnership aims to leverage its capabilities to provide imaging data for agriculture, mining sustainability and rehabilitation projects, as well as image-based infrastructure initiatives.
Hitachi Vantara will also integrate Carbonix platforms into its data analytics capabilities, aiming to enhance the actionable insights derived from the UAV-captured images. Together, the two companies will further explore opportunities to leverage the unique capabilities of the Volanti.
Hitachi Vantara senior director Owen Keates said: “Industry 4.0, and digital transformation in general, is driven by sensors and connectivity. An advanced UAV such as the Volanti takes sensing capability to a new level, providing a platform that can support sophisticated imaging equipment across a variety of applications to provide actionable insights.”
