The Elios is an interesting-looking structure already, with a unique enclosure that protects the drone itself and allows it to head through more intricate structures such as power plant boilers with ease. It's designed specifically for those areas in mind, with Lightbridge 2 allowing for minute navigation and imaging to tie it all together.
Elios operators are sent a live view to the mobile device of their choice via the Lightbridge system while flying the drone, which can help create and improve digital images of the areas to be explored. This means human workers don't have to be exposed to potentially dangerous conditions, and that's a win for everyone.
The drone was actually released last month to little or no fanfare, but it's definitely something we should be cheering about, especially when it comes to ensuring the safety of those working in questionable conditions.
