Higher in resolution than Google Earth/Maps and updated as often as daily, WeDoSky’s Drone Data Science solutions help answer the 'What' and the 'Where' for a geographical area that needs to be monitored.
WeDoSky™ is a data science company focused on generating actionable business insights using drone imagery, to assist various industries like mining, construction, energy & solar. The data extraction and analysis is done using their proprietary software ‘visualAI’™. This is also offered as a standalone SaaS platform for Drone-enabled businesses across the globe. According to PricewaterhouseCoopers, Drone data for business intelligence is a $127 bn opportunity.
WeDoSky™ counts titans like Adani Enterprises, Tata Power, Azure Power, and ACC Cement amongst its many clients. The company was established in August 2014 when the founder, Jaspreet, thought of commercializing his passion in robotics and drone building. Noting the tremendous need for drone-based data in multiple industries, the team developed the software for improved project management. Reports laud the company’s solutions to be 72x faster than conventional survey technologies as it has a million+ data points with ground resolutions much higher than anything else currently available in the market.
WeDoSky™ has now raised its first round of investment from Mumbai Angels Network, after bootstrapping for over 2 years. The funds will be used for the global expansion of ‘visualAI’™ and to integrate solutions for agriculture, infrastructure, and insurance industries after successfully assisting leading organizations in India.
