Sevendof is a startup in Norway focused on making drones available to help solve important problems.
We are developing a platform which offer drones as a complete service, without requiring ownership, training, or presence in the field from the end user. Our platform consists of a network of stations and long-range drones with built-in autonomy. Each mission defined by the user is fulfilled automatically, providing high-quality data to the end user through the cloud.
In cooperation with our pilot customers TrønderEnergi Nett and Eidsiva Nett, we are focused on delivering automated power line inspection as our first service. Our goal is to consistently improve the availability and lower the cost of our service through increased use of our shared drone network.
