Flying drone kind of like driving a car, which has only the windshield. You can see only in one direction at a time, and when an unmanned visual line goes out, the user is left with one point of view through the lens of the camera. Hivemapper, the company has just raised $ 3 million Series A led by sparks Capital, is looking to make it a little safer.
You can think of Hivemapper like Waze drone.
Hivemapper charted more than 20 million boundaries construction, more than 10 million building height and 15 million points of interest all supported on 3D map. In addition, tens of thousands of application outlined no-fly zone over the country.
How Hivemapper continues aggregating their data on buildings and obstacles, users are also encouraged to report problems with patches, as they happen, as well as the interesting routes and launching point for their community.
The application is compatible with 3 DJI Phantom, Phantom 2, 1 and Inspire, and is currently working on the Android version of IOS beta.
Users will be able to fly through the application with those compatible drones and get alerts for nearby buildings or obstacles in real-time.
When asked about the business model, the founder Ariel Hivemapper Saydman said they were completely focused on product that provides a fun, productive and maintain flight.
“After we are successful in this realm we can imagine other companies in the ecosystem drone Hivemapper want to insert as an ingredient, as many do today with Google Maps, into their products and services,” he said.
