Bob Young, board member and investor at PrecisionHawk, poses for a portrait behind a glass wall at the company's world headquarters in Raleigh on March 17. PrecisionHawk uses artificial intelligence in its unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to detect weather conditions in the air and creates its own optimal flight path. The Lancaster, which is one of its most-used UAVs, continually monitors itself while in flight. The device converts thousands of images with exceptional accuracy and speed using a secure and fully automated workflow. The Lancaster has a one-click upload so that data collected in the field streams directly to the cloud. The PrecisionHawk platform ensures accurate calibration, redundant ground coverage and data overlap that drastically speeds up processing time. The device is mainly used in the agricultural field but can be modified to suit other tasks.
