Nasdaq First North-listed Crunchfish has signed an agreement with a San Francisco-based manufacturer of pilotless drones. The company will use Crunchfish’s touchless gesture interaction software to develop apps for their drones as well as offer the software to customers who want to develop their own drone apps.
The American company develops and manufactures pilotless drones as well as applications for operating the drones when flying. Advanced computer vision algorithms allow the drone to avoid obstacles while monitoring their surroundings in 3D. The navigation and piloting system is 100 percent autonomous. The drones are developed for both the consumer and enterprise markets, and are used for video capturing, inspection and survey, automated parcel delivery, surveillance and emergency response.
The commercial launch on the market is targeted for second half of 2018.
The agreement holds the right for the counterpart to use Crunchfish’s gesture recognition software to develop apps for their drones as well as offer the software to customers who prefers to develop their own drone apps.
“It is an important recognition of our software’s capabilities that Crunchfish’s touchless gesture technology meets the complex interaction requirements of a driverless drone. Our main focus is on processing the industrial AR market, but it is always pleasing that other growth areas are paying attention to and demanding our software for gesture control.” says Joakim Nydemark, CEO of Crunchfish.
