Flyability is a Swiss company developing the world’s first collision-tolerant flying robot. Spin-off of EPFL and incorporated in 2014, it currently employs 6 full-time employees. Its patented solution allows to fly in complex environments while being safe for humans and the infrastructure. Flyability is focusing on the inspection of infrastructures in Oil & Gas and for transport infrastructures (bridges, tunnels …).
By allowing a safe exploration of places impossible to access before or only with costly staging or rope access, Flyability is opening a wide range of new applications for drone-based inspections.
Flyability developed the world’s first collision-tolerant flying robot, allowing to operate in any type of complex environment, especially indoors and inside structures like tanks, chimneys, … It allows flying in cluttered places impossible to reach with conventional drones and allows flying in contact in order to get a high-resolution image of surfaces. Moreover, with its protective frame, it is safe to fly close to humans and does not risk damaging its surroundings.
