Kristian Skaarup, CEO of Lorenz Technology, opened the summit by welcoming partners and guests. He briefly introduced the product and its potential, for instance stating that Lorenz Technology’s intelligent drone solution is ready to operate in all weather conditions. He further described the potential of the different AI features onboard the drones, especially stressing the potential of the new and improved real-time streaming, which minimize latency to less than 1 second.
“Two years ago, our solution wasn’t ready, but now clients can start to use our cloud platform Lorenz Hive® and the different features within the Lorenz AI-Link®” – Kristian Skaarup
The speech by the mayor of Odense, Peter Rahbæk Juel, recognized Lorenz Technology’s huge potential and contribution within the Odense robotic cluster, as well as it described how Lorenz has utilized the opportunities of the cluster. He expressed Lorenz Technology’s potential as a future epi-center for drones, mentioning the fundings and trust Lorenz has received from private and public investors as indications of their potential.
“I think the potential of the company is fair to compare with some of the most successful companies in the city” – Peter Rahbæk Juel
An example of a real-life business case showcasing Lorenz Technology’s product in action was provided by Mads Bentzen-Billesøe, Senior Project Manager of DFDS. He mentioned the common interest, co-creation, and collaboration as key drivers in the relationship with Lorenz. However, the main issue Lorenz Technology can solve for DFDS is within logistics, more specifically the optimization of yard positioning.
“The drones will fly autonomously around the terminals, pick up the precise position of the trailers and their ID’s, and transfer the information to our management systems. Therefore, we will have an exact location of each and every trailer on the terminal. With the service we will be able to optimize the terminal operations and the loading of our vessels. Same information will be available as a customer service to truckdrivers, so they can more easily find their trailer on the terminal. This makes the whole operation much more efficient.” – Mads Bentzen-Billesø
Søren Land, Sales Director of Lorenz Technology, further explained the improved product features within his speech as well as mentioning Lorenz and its partners’ journey within the last couple of years, stressing that the journey has just started. The different AI features and the cloud platform Lorenz Hive® delivers a robust platform to manage and store numerous sets of data as well as it helps coordinate different tasks such as intuitive and easy route and task planning. Moreover, the platform is accessible from any location, making a command center able to follow every drone flight live.
“We are proud of being mentioned as the fastest growing drone company at the moment. We have the project, the potential and the product that can gain and provide value in several business verticals.” – Søren Land
Conclusively, as part of the Live-Demo session at the LDS 2019 Lorenz Technology introduced the present integration of outdoor driving robots able to leverage on the Lorenz Hive® for route planning and data gathering. The test was done in cooperation with business partner Capra Robotics. The Capra robot revealed potential that will provide value to several business verticals incl. security and surveillance.
We are looking forward to seeing partners and guest at the Lorenz Drone Summit 2020.
