Day of the drones dawns at dnata


Handling company dnata is using drones to monitor cargo and airline supplies in its warehouses at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. It has partnered with US tech start-up Gather AI to introduce the drones which will map the environment, collect inventory data, count cases, measure temperature, and read barcodes, without the need for any additional active infrastructure. The drones are paired to a tablet device to provide live inventory data which, says dnata, will be 99.8% accurate. The drones can operate at temperatures as low as -10 Celsius degrees and the handler plans to roll them out across its global cargo network in the next few years.
