ELIOS by FLYABILITY
INSPECT & EXPLORE
Discover the first collision-tolerant flying robot, designed for industrial inspection professionals. Designed and manufactured by FLYABILITY, allowing for the first time access to complex, cluttered or indoor places, Elios is unleashing the potential of UAVs in a number of applications where their use was previously too dangerous or simply impossible.
Video: Elios, the collision-tolerant drone for industrial inspection
Simultaneous full HD and thermal imagery recording, and adjustable tilt angle.
Carbon fibre structure, collision-tolerant up to 15km/h. Modular design for easy maintenance.
LIVE 2.4 GHz VIDEO FEEDBACK
Robust digital video downlink for beyond line of sight operation, even in metallic environments.
ON BOARD LIGHTING
Powerful LEDs for navigation and inspection in dark places.
Batteries can be changed in seconds.
Carbon fibre structure, collision-tolerant up to 15km/h. Modular design for easy maintenance. After finishing the inspection flight, Elios’ software presents mission data for future reference.
Decrease downtime and inspection costs, avoid confined space entry and increase worker safety by remotely accessing boilers, tanks, pressure vessels, tunnels and other complex environments inside your plant.
EASY TO PILOT
No piloting experience needed. Simply unpack, insert the battery and fly without risk of collision, damage or injury. The drone is capable of taking off and landing in any variety of environments.
HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGERY
Elios is capable of delivering images up to 0.2 mm/px, even in complete darkness. Along with its LED lighting and thermal imagery, it inspects and explores the unreachable
SAFE FOR HUMANS
Thanks to its protective cage, Elios is safe to fly close and even in contact with humans and the surrounding environment. It can thus be used when the plant is still in operation without any risk of crash or injury.
