Gleam Flies IA 2020

  1. 1. the team NIKOLAY SHILDEROV Software Consultant Software University - Artificial Intelligence Telerik Academy - Software Development New Bulgarian University - Finance Past experience gathered in Financial & Business Analysis, Project Management and Business Development IVAN SHILDEROV High School Student Software University - DevOps Telerik Academy - Software Development Freelance Projects in Software Development
  2. 2. ...no problems, but opportunities...
  3. 3. autonomous drone swarms
  4. 4. in advertisement
  5. 5. in entertainment
  6. 6. even for special applications
  7. 7. the business idea entertainment & advertisment - Outdoor Light Shows - Drone-launched Pyro (fireworks) - Drone Laser Show - Human-drone interaction - Drone-light paintings - Aerial Image Projection industrial applications (secondary revenue streams) - Custom UAV software services - Infrastructure inspections - Agricultural land surveying - Drone photo/videography the automated drone swarms are something many of us think is still unheard of, thus they are the perfect tool for new corporate marketing campaigns with time their popularity will only grow and they will be an expected spectacle at concerts, celebrations, festivals and parties
  8. 8. example guerilla marketing entertainment & advertisment - Outdoor Light Shows - Drone-launched Pyro (fireworks) - Drone Laser Show - Human-drone interaction - Drone-light paintings - Aerial Image Projection industrial applications (secondary revenue streams) - Custom UAV software services - Infrastructure inspections - Agricultural land surveying - Drone-light paintings - Drone photo/videography
  9. 9. target clients b2b - Event Management Service Companies - Corporate Parties / Team Building events of Large Companies - Big Conference events (e.g WebIt, etc...) - Music Concerts, Shows, Spectacles, Festivals - Other types of big scale events (e.g. celebrations, football matches, etc...) - Marketing Departments of Big Corporations - Guerilla Marketing Campaigns b2c - Private shows and parties - Weddings
  10. 10. competition - a dozen of large drone show providers exist internationally - most of them are tech focused, while a few lease external technology and provide only creative services - company size ranges from a team of 3 to up to 50 people for the creative houses - least expensive show is USD 18,000 for 50 drones - most expensive show costs USD 300,000 for 1000 drones - only two drone show businesses in CEE - Hungary and Latvia
  11. 11. how it works – the software choreographing – 3D modeling and animation in the free and open source Blender 3D software 1 automatic conversion of 3D coordinates and animation frames into multichannel drone- readable data (custom made software) 2 data for each drone is saved in a separate channel, in a single file 3 (basic linear equations are used to interpolate the 3D objects into drone coordinate points and extrapolate the flying pattern from the animation frames)
  12. 12. how it works – on site the file is then read real time by the computer4 GPS data for each drone is generated and sent to the computer. Distance data (taken by distance sensors in each drone) is also transmitted to the mother computer 5 The GPS and distance data are analysed real time, and are included in the choreography algorithm computation only if any divergences from the original path are detected 6 at this stage the show runs autonomously and requires only overseeing by a drone operator
  13. 13. business timeline bootstrapping financing operational business up to 6 months up to 6 months
  14. 14. bootstrapping with BGN 10,000 Different quadcopters (x5) BGN 4500 LED lights + hardware parts BGN 200 Industrial Wi-Fi router BGN 500 Raspberry Pi's / Arduinos BGN 400 Distance sensors, electronics BGN 400 Laptop Workstation BGN 3500 Development Space for 6 months (InitLab) BGN 400 Miscelaneous expenses BGN 100
  15. 15. bootstrapping with BGN 10,000 our goal is to develop a MVP, a software that allows the easy modeling, animating and choreographing movements of autonomous quadcopter swarms with successfully choreographing and lifting five drone in the air, we will seek next stage financing in order to fully develop the product / service to a market ready level
  16. 16. projections monthly expenses ~ BGN 15,000 monthly revenue ~ BGN 25,000 break even ~ 18 to 24 months after financing
