Rather than a plethora of new hardware, the emphasis will be on development of software, which will make up half of the systems on vehicles versus 30 percent today. Here names like QNX, Nvidia, Intel, Google, and Kespry stand out.
Farmers Insurance use Kespry's services for roof inspections and other claims activities. They offer cloud services for data storage and analysis as well as drone inspections.
“Roofing analysis can be done better. We can do it better, and Kespry makes that a reality,” says Chad Conley, executive vice president of Complete Roofing. “After our customers experience our process, they go ‘Wow. I had no idea there’s a company that can do that.’”
After examining 2017 storm-related drone data and interviewing insurance employees, we concluded there are five critical drone takwaways and best practices insurance companies need to keep in mind going forward as they consider their responses to future catastrophes.

Experienced field surveyors independently measured 13 roofs using traditional survey methods, while independent pilots flew autonomous Kespry UAVs over these roofs to capture images and generate 3D models.
Kespry provides an aerial intelligence platform integrated with cloud storage to streamline insurance claims and help analysts better grasp the scope of a disaster.
Kespry says drones “dramatically decrease claim cycle times,” allowing insurers to settle three times as many claims per day while reducing overall costs. Kespry technology is used in a number of different types of damage claims, including farm damage after storms.
Drones have emerged as key tools in the construction industry, serving to automate, capture, and process imagery from sites using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Menlo Park-based industrial drone company Kespry raised $33 million last month from notable names such as Cisco Investments, Shell Technology Ventures, and Lightspeed Venture Partners.
