H3 Dynamics Launches Autonomous Drone Stations for Solar Farm Monitoring

February 7, 2022

H3 Dynamics has announced a new robots-as-a-service (RaaS) offering for autonomous solar farm monitoring, in partnership with Belgium’s Sitemark, which specializes in AI analytics.

The new partnership combines H3’s drone-in-a-box (DBX) with visual and thermal analytics from Sitemark to automate and scale remote monitoring operations in large solar farm installations. The Sitemark solutions have been deployed by Total, Bougues, EDF, Engie and Orix to inspect more than 30,000 ha of solar PV parks across 35 countries, H3 said.

Designed to be the eyes and ears for solar farm operators, the DBX robot can be deployed permanently at the solar farms to track construction progress, identify solar panel degradation and provide on-site security.

“The unique combination of Sitemark Fuse and H3 Dynamics’ DBX will change the way data is captured and processed throughout the entire lifecycle of solar power assets,” said Michiko Lloyd, CEO of Sitemark.

H3 said it is automating inspections across smart cities, precision agriculture, water infrastructure, and ports. The company recently announced DBX G7, an agnostic drone-in-a-box platform that can automate drones from any manufacturer, and deploy expert analytics from any developer. The company said it is shifting the industry towards an open tele-operations paradigm. “Our goal is to provide the world’s best data services from specialist vendors all over the world, available at any of our DBX installations globally,” said Taras Wankewycz, CEO of H3 Dynamics.
