Why we are uniqueHIGHER LEVEL OF ABSTRACTIONMonitoring missions are defined graphicallyIntegration with Open Street MapSmart Planning, for example: • automatic management of the choreography of quadrotors • energy consumption estimation and automatic management • ...FLEXIBLE DEFINITION OF MONITORING MISSIONSThe language for defining monitoring missions is based on the “event-condition-action” paradigmEASY TECHNOLOGICAL TRANSFERThe language for defining monitoring missions speaks the same language of on-site operators no need for expensive training sessions
