BELLEVUE, Wash. — EagleView and GIS solutions announced an exclusive property inspection partnership with Skydio, a leading U.S drone manufacturer and world leader in autonomous flight technology for automated residential roof inspection with drones.
This is part of a multi-year, multi-million-dollar exclusive partnership to deliver Skydio House Scan to several major country markets. The partnership brings the power of precision drone technology and AI to insurance carriers, claims adjusters, and government bodies and will result in the largest ever commercial drone deployment with thousands of units deployed.
"EagleView is excited to partner with Skydio to deliver breakthrough innovation for residential roof inspection that puts autonomous drone technology and unparalleled image quality to work for our customers," said Chris Jurasek, CEO of EagleView. "EagleView's images are already 16 times clearer than those of satellites, and with Skydio's drones you'll be able to not only spot a dime on the roof but see the face of Franklin D. Roosevelt stamped on it. This partnership allows customers to confidently make decisions while lowering costs."
The Skydio 2 drone technology with Skydio House Scan software enables an intuitive flight experience. It allows autonomous data capture of a residential roof with precision and completeness, providing unequaled image clarity and property intelligence. Together, EagleView and Skydio provide a complete drone inspection solution for residential properties that creates a facet-by-facet flight plan and autonomously flies the inspection for consistent, comprehensive image capture for virtual property assessments.
The partnership with Redwood, Ca.-based Skydio is part of the upcoming EagleView Assess product launch. Assess will continue to expand metro coverage over the coming year, followed by wider coverage in rural areas.
"We are excited to partner with EagleView to revolutionize the residential roof inspection market through the power of autonomous drones and AI," said Adam Bry, CEO of Skydio. "Together with EagleView, we provide insurance carriers, claims adjusters, construction companies, and government bodies with a first-of-its-kind integrated solution that automates the entire inspection process. Thanks to the unique flight autonomy capabilities of Skydio drones, we are able to enhance virtual property inspections, delivering exceptional accuracy, consistency, and image quality."
