Drones also help with warehouse work

Robotic aircraft can also be used for many tasks inside buildings.

Founded in 2014 Verity AG operates innovative unmanned aerial vehicles at night in some warehouses. Although the idea may seem surreal, in fact, drones can be used very effectively inside buildings. Models equipped with lights and sensors, as well as software and cameras, can be used to scan barcodes, inventory and check the digital inventory, among other things.

Founded by Raffaello D’Andrea, a professor at ETH Zurich, the company conducts basic research in its laboratory and is now a leader in autonomous indoor robotic aircraft systems. That the technology works has been proven with presentations from Verity Studios. Verity unmanned aerial vehicles have proven to be extremely safe and reliable.


Markus Hehn, co-founder and chief technical officer of Verity, was instrumental in developing programs for night work in warehouses, developing learning algorithms that allow quadrocopters to fly on a slalom track and drones already able to learn self-navigation. Research by alumni Federico Augugliaro, another staff member at ETH Zurich, has also influenced potential areas of application. The specialist studied how to coordinate the movement of robotic aircraft fleets in order to be able to perform more complex tasks, such as flying with assembled architectures or building a suspension bridge.

Verity’s drones have so far flown more than 300,000 flights in 20 countries. Raffaello D’Andrea highlightedthat their employees want to solve social problems and bring forward social change. They already have more than a hundred registered patents and have sought to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the coronavirus epidemic.

The first drone fleet will be used in the warehouses of the Danish shipping and logistics group DSV and IKEA. The service can significantly simplify inventory and at the same time increase the quality of warehousing. It’s no coincidence that by next year, Verity will have almost all of its robotic aircraft capacity tied up.
