Intel Launches Aerial Data Analytics Platform
The newly announced Intel Insight Platform is a cloud-based data processing, analytics and reporting service that allows customers to store, share, and manage the rich data that commercial drone systems provide.

The Intel Insight Platform helps harness data collected during a drone flight to unlock business value and it will initially be available to select enterprise accounts.

Developed in a strategic partnership with DELAIR, this platform will address a range of commercial applications and verticals – from inspections and surveying in construction, mining, precision agriculture, oil & gas and more. It is capable of generating 2D and 3D models, taking measurements and making annotations for sharing across teams, as well as running advanced data analytics like change detection and plant counting. Intel believes the cloud-based platform will help drive unprecedented scale for commercial drone operations, powered by the technology company known for performance and quality that you can trust.

“With Intel Insight Platform, we look forward to working with customers to manage large complex data sets and help provide them with automated analytics and uncover new insights,” said Anil Nanduri, vice president of Intel’s New Technology Group and general manager of Intels UAV segment. With the addition of Insight, Intel is leading the way in providing an end-to-end solution to our customer from drone platforms to data analytics.

Commercial drone technology is positioned to address real-world business challenges by enabling regular access to aerial data with Intel technology poised to contribute significantly to this transformation through its innovative hardware platforms, computing, automation and services for the growing drone ecosystem. In addition to existing strategic engagements with companies such as Topcon, Airbus and Volocopter, Intel has expanded its ecosystem relationships to include DELAIR, Honeywell, Pix4D, Bentley, Cyberhawk, Aeroprotechnik and HUVRdat* among many others, to bring these incredible new platform to the market.
