AutoModality, Inc. recently announced the closing of an acquisition of UsPLM,
Inc., a drone management platform provider based in Syracuse, NY. UsPLM has created a product lifecycle management solution for mobile robotic platforms and drones that will become a key component of Automodality’s Mission Control Enterprise SaaS offering.
Both AutoModality and UsPLM are past GENIUS NY finalists. AutoModality won the grand prize of $1 million in 2017, the first year of the drone accelerator. UsPLM took part in the accelerator in 2018.
“UsPLM has created a state-of-the-art lifecycle management platform for the UAS sector that offers enterprise-level PLM unmatched in the drone industry,” said Aaron Singer, Chief Executive Officer of Automodality, Inc. “Combined with our AMROS™ mobile robotics platform and patented Perceptive Navigation® powered autonomous industrial inspection applications, UsPLM and Automodality field the only true end-to-end drone solutions available on the market today.”
UsPLM was founded by Yunpeng Li and Utpal Roy in 2018 and were finalists in GENIUS NY receiving $250K. With this initial investment, UsPLM built an advanced product lifecycle management platform out of The Tech Garden. With its teams, fleet, workflow management and data visualization technology, UsPLM was a natural match for Automodality.
“Automodality and UsPLM are perfect partners in creating a true end-to-end drone solution for enterprises of all sizes,” remarked Yunpeng Li, Co-founder of UsPLM. “UsPLM’s ERP and enterprise expertise coupled with Automodality’s advanced perception and navigation technologies create a true world-beater solution.”
AutoModality’s AM Mission Control Cloud-based software-as-a-service will enable users to do everything from plan, execute and manage their missions to storing, managing and analyzing the data post-mission. Enterprise customers often do not possess the flexibility in their ERP or asset management systems to accommodate the specialized, embedded data types created by UAS/mobile robotics systems. AM Mission Control not only makes the storage, navigation and
management of this data straight-forward and easily accessible by stakeholder teams within an enterprise, it also leverages the security, portability and accessibility of cloud-based solutions further enabling actionable data to be fully leveraged across an enterprise. AM leverages strategic partnership with Microsoft Azure and IoT Central, bringing the security, scalability, and reliability of Microsoft Azure to our AM Mission Control™ SaaS solution-set.
AutoModality® (AM) is the global leader in fully-autonomous advanced robotics control software for UAVs and other small mobile robot systems. AM’s AMROS™ (Automodality Robotics Operating Suite) and Perceptive Navigation® autonomous robotics vision platform allows our vehicle integrations to “fly” autonomously in difficult-to-access locations where there is often no-GPS/RF signal available and/or when close-proximity imaging/sensing is required in order to collect valuable, “actionable” data. Automodality offers full turnkey, autonomous robotics mission service solutions including survey, monitoring, imaging, assessment and real-time analytics for a host of industry verticals including: precision agriculture, transportation, mining, communications, disaster response/first-responder, military, architecture and warehouse/facilities applications.
