30 Apr Unmanned Life is one of the winners at the #EUvsVirus Hackathon!
Unmanned Life’s Autonomous Pandemic Management Platform (ASPMP) stood out from more than 2000 projects submitted by over 20, 000 participants from 141 countries as a response to the COVID19 crisis.
The European Commission and more than 600 global partners, including Google, Amazon, EY, IBM, KPMG, Samsung, Siemens, Telefonica, and Vodafone, as well as leading public authorities across Europe, have selected Unmanned Life’s Autonomous Drone Disinfection for Covid-19 solution as one of the winners of the EUvsVirus hackathon, for the “Business Continuity” domain.
The hackathon led by the European Innovation Council and in close collaboration with the EU Member States, connects civil society, innovators, partners and investors across Europe to develop innovative solutions aimed at fighting the coronavirus outbreak. Unmanned Life’s Autonomous Pandemic Management Platform (ASPMP) stood out from more than 2000 projects submitted by over 20, 000 participants from 141 countries as a response to the COVID19 crisis.
Being one of the winners means Unmanned Life will be invited to join the European Innovation Council COVID Platform, which will be launched shortly to facilitate connections with end-users, such as hospitals and public authorities, and provide access to corporate partners, investors, foundations and other funding opportunities from across the EU.
“We are looking forward to further develop and mature this solution with the EU partners, experts in the field and smart cities. These collaborations will allow us to focus on a fast roll-out in various cities to fight the virus” Kim Clement – Unmanned Life CTO
Unmanned Life’s winning solution powers the deployment of autonomous fleets of disinfection drones, launched and managed by its highly interoperable Autonomy-as-a-Service software platform for Smart cities. The fleets of autonomous drones will be deployed and controlled from mobile deployment centers (for example vans) near the operational area. At the same time the process can be tracked, traced and controlled remotely from a central control room placed in police stations or other public offices.
The use of autonomous drones to disinfect large spaces, both indoors and outdoors, is a game-changer on the battle against the COVID-19. The solution has several benefits such as high accuracy in any part of a city, in a repeatable manner, covering large areas in a short time, and finally, at fraction of the cost.
The autonomous drone disinfection solution is one of the several solutions portfolio that the company has developed during the last few weeks, demonstrating the high flexibility and adaptability of the platform to deliver autonomous robotic solutions that are valuable in a very short time frame.
This is a very important milestone for Unmanned Life. The Covid-19 crisis has revealed the importance of robotics and AI to ensure that recovery will be sustainable and that an efficient fight against the pandemic is available in a very short term at a lower risk for human workers. Unmanned Life is looking to engage in the upcoming weeks and months to deliver a joint response to Covid-19 pandemic. It is only together that we can recover from this crisis. Unmanned Life is ready to take an active part on it.
“Unmanned Life has always been at the forefront of pioneering Autonomous solutions with our unique Autonomy-as-a-Service SAAS platform acting as the brains of an Autonomous team of drones and robots working together.For Covid-19 we have developed Autonomous Pandemic Management Platform to help society, industry and the economy at-large come to grips with this crisis, which will stay with us for a few years at-least in a sustainable way” Kumardev Chatterjee – Unmanned Life CEO
