• SCALABLE DRONE SERVICE PLATFORM

    We are Sevendof: a technology startup based in Trondheim, Norway. Our mission is to enable businesses to use drones as tools, without having to own or operate them. To accomplish this we're building a network of stations housing fully autonomous long-distance drones capable of carrying out missions automatically, without placing humans in the field.

     

    In cooperation with utility company TrønderEnergi Nett, we are focusing on performing automated power line inspection. The future re-use of the drone network across customers and industries will distribute costs and improve availability for all users.

  • ENABLING COMPONENTS

    AUTOMATED DRONE STATION

    We're building an automated drone station to enable fully autonomous drone missions. Our basic drone station is built to facilitate the storing, take-off, landing, repositioning, and refueling of a single drone. Future drone stations will in addition be capable of storing several drones, as well as automatically changing drone payloads.

    MODULAR PAYLOAD ARCHITECTURE

    We're designing our system for modularity with respect to payloads. The core drone system will contain all systems essential to flight, allowing any compatible payload to be flown. Our payload development kit will enable users to build unique payloads accommodating their use case.

  • Pilot use case: Power line inspection

    We're working with Norwegian utility companies to build a completely automated data gathering solution.

    Our project has R&D funding approval from The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate for the period 2017-2024.

    The Sevendof team won the 2017 Innovation Challenge with their "Inspection Lab" concept. Innovation Challenge is a national innovation contest hosted by Aftenposten and Accenture, with the final round held at the A-Tech technology conference. The "Inspection Lab" concept focused on how the power grid can be inspected using long-range drones, and how this system can be generalized to solve other important tasks in society.
