ELIOS 3

Digitizing the inaccessible.

Quickly turn asset data into digital insights, with Elios 3 - the first mapping and inspection indoor drone, offering an unmatched combination of intelligence, versatility and stability.

INDUSTRY 4.0

Get ready for a new era of internal inspection and mapping

Drone-based inspection is not a technology of the future, it is a necessity for today’s digital fast-paced world. With the 4th industrial revolution in motion, organizations are looking to deliver digital transformation of their industrial processes, while cutting costs and bettering workers’ environments.

Elios 3 helps industrials effortlessly achieve these goals by bringing their inspections and mappings to the next level.

Much more than a flying camera, Elios 3 is a powerful data-harvesting tool.

Relying on the power of computer vision and LiDAR mapping, Elios 3 is a versatile indoor drone opening doors to a world where performing systematic inspections does not require months of training, reporting is done intuitively on a 3D model of your asset, and situational awareness is built into the piloting app.

FlyAware™ SLAM Engine

Powered by FlyAware™.

FlyAware™ is the unique combination of computer vision, LiDAR technology, and a powerful NVidia graphic engine. Acting as a centimeter-accurate indoor GPS, it builds real-time 3D maps enabling the drone to sense its surroundings instantaneously. Today, Flyaware™ allows for groundbreaking stability and highly accurate locational awareness. Tomorrow, it is the promise of complex confined spaces inspections performed in full autonomy.

SLAM-Based Stabilization

Stone-still stability. No matter the conditions.

The all-new SLAM-based stabilization algorithm catches the tiniest unpredictable movements of the drone and instructs the flight controller to compensate for it. This allows for the drone to float in the air still as a stone even in the toughest conditions. With Elios 3, pilots from all skill levels will succeed at performing complex missions with close to no training.

Collision-Resilient Rugged Design

Ready for the tough work.

Designed after Flyabilty’s patent-pending collision-resilient flight controller, Elios 3 is fit for use in the most complex industrial settings. With its signature cage and unique reversing motors, Elios 3 is the only drone in the market that can recover from flipping upside-down without crashing. The rugged IP-44 design allows for the inspection and mapping of harsh environments without concern for water splashes and dust.

 

*Elios 3 is not certified IP-44 but it has been designed to comply with such rating according to the ingress protection code.

Close-Up Inspection Dedicated Payload

 

Supercharging data quality.

The static payload now comes with a fully unobstructed 180° field of view to a 4K camera, a thermal camera, and a distance sensor. The lighting system has been rethought from the ground-up to bring an even more powerful and homogeneous lighting experience. Thanks to the industry-leading oblique and dust-proof lighting system, looking for pitting, cracks, or build-ups becomes as natural as doing it manually with a flashlight. Elios 3 close-up inspection payload delivers stunning image quality, consistently smooth, even in the complete dark.

Testimonials

What our clients say about Elios 3

The stability in [dusty] cyclones was an ‘AHA!’ moment. It’s amazing. Makes a big difference.
Jorge Gamarra, Global Digital Maintenance Group Expert
Order of magnitude change from E1 to E2, and now again from E2 to E3! Can truly scale the use of drones at Chevron by getting people who aren’t experts to fly it.
Mauricio Calva, Nondestructive Examination Expert
Game changing, 10x better than Elios 2, a drastic improvement! Stability means more people can fly it.
