With the ability to monitor network conditions and device behaviour with T-Mobile Control Center, Lucid Drone Technologies will have near real-time visibility to all their industrial spraying drones
T-Mobile announced that the Un-carrier has been chosen by Lucid Drone Technologies to be the exclusive provider of IoT connectivity and management for their fleet of industrial spraying drones. Together, Lucid Drone Technologies and T-Mobile are collaborating to put maintenance teams and exterior cleaning companies out of harm’s way using drone technology for high-risk facilities maintenance work like exterior soft-wash cleaning and high-rise window washing. Also, to fly drones beyond line-of-sight and power more data-intensive capabilities like video streaming, the companies also plan to leverage T-Mobile’s industry-leading 5G networks in the future.
To keep maintenance teams safe, commercial property management firms and developers make significant investments. Expensive liability insurance premiums and equipment fees have facilities leaders looking for new and cost-effective solutions. Enter industrial spraying drone pioneer Lucid Drone Technologies and the Un-carrier to deliver a game changer — drones equipped to clean exterior building surfaces and windows.
Powered by T-Mobile for Business, the next generation of Lucid Drone Technologies industrial spraying drones can perform exterior washing for commercial building surfaces and windows, including outdoor stadiums and arenas, hotels, and university structures. That means maintenance teams can steer clear of some high-risk tasks, keeping them safer and focused on other mission critical work.
IoT driving the future of industrial spraying drones technology
T-Mobile’s network powers critical capabilities for Lucid Drone Technologies industrial spraying drones like real-time sharing of flight data, battery utilization information, hardware diagnostics, and delivery of firmware and software updates. Additionally, the ability to view and manage the connectivity of their industrial spraying drones will be given by T-Mobile Control Center to Lucid Drone Technologies. Lucid Drone Technologies can easily accelerate deployment of their growing fleet with the automation and provisioning capabilities of T-Mobile’s IoT platform. With the ability to monitor network conditions and device behaviour with T-Mobile Control Center, Lucid Drone Technologies will have near real-time visibility to all their industrial spraying drones.
Initially, providing a reliable connection nationwide, T-Mobile for Business will deliver 4G LTE connectivity to Lucid Drone Technologies industrial spraying drones. For advanced use cases such as network operations center access, live streaming video and remote piloting, Lucid Drone Technologies expects to utilize the Un-carrier’s 5G network in the near future. Paving the way for new drone applications that rely on low-latency, high-speed data, and real-time location and proximity-based services, T-Mobile, as America’s largest and fastest 5G network, is poised to push IoT to its full potential and catapult.
“At Lucid Drone Technologies, we are committed to providing robotic solutions that allow our customers to complete jobs that were once dull, dirty, and dangerous in a safer, faster and smarter way,” said Andrew Ashur, CEO of Lucid Drone Technologies. “T-Mobile not only allows us to provide our customers with the highest quality of real-time support and connectivity today, but they also have impressive 5G capabilities that allow us to push the frontier limits of responsible robotics.”
“Lucid Drone Technologies is a great example of a customer using originality and new technology to solve complicated problems,” said Callie Field, President of T-Mobile Business Group. “It’s not very often that you get to collaborate with these kinds of thinkers, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to offer our technology to help bring their vision to life.”
