Our video was the most voted in the selection process and will participate in the final phase to be held at the world ‘s largest fair of autonomous systems, the AUVSI Xponential in Chicago

A video about our AEROX platform, developed within the framework of the AEROARMS European project, has been selected as one of the best three videos that will compete for the “Best Engineering Drone Video of the Year, to be presented at the world’s largest fair of autonomous systems (UAS) , the AUVSI Xponential 2019 that is scheduled to take place April 29 to May 2 in Chicago.

Our video reached first place in the popular vote held in recent weeks, after gaining more than 2,380 votes ahead of a video of the American company CivilTech, and another about 13 controlled explosions in a building in the US. The three videos will now compete for the prize in the Chicago final.

AEROX is a worldwide pioneering new technology platform which allows the use of first aerial robot for the development of industrial inspections by contact, for sectors such as energy or chemical, which require maintenance work in height of operators that could be avoided with this new application, safer and less expensive.

This technology is part of the AEROARMS project, belonging to the European Horizon 2020 program in the area of aerial robotics, whose novelty is the development of the first drones in the world with multiple robotic arms for this type of function. This project will end in 2019 and is endowed with a budget of more than 5.7 million euros, in which partners from five countries participate, including CATEC: Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland and Spain.
