Bhubaneswar: An Odisha based aerial mobility startup is making India proud in Paris at the biggest tech event Viva Tech 2022 in Europe. The ongoing event has drawn Tech Innovators and Entrepreneurs globally from 149 countries.
BonV is the creator of India’s first Al-powered multi-utility electric air vehicle, RM001. It first solved the problem of lifting heavy cargos in difficult terrains which caught the attention on Indian military. Created with cutting-edge technology that incorporates encrypted data link, LIDAR, sensors and auto-pilot within an autonomous framework, RM001 is designed to revolutionize aerospace solutions on a global scale.
They aim for aerospace to be a sustainable, safe and infinitely more smart domain that combines the power of AI and accessible design for real-world problem-solving.
Bon V RM001’s ultra-modern design furnishes it with multi-utility applications. The wonder aerial vehicle has a weight 3 times lighter than any other aerial craft while maintaining a strength double that of a helicopter. It is an affordable alternative source for handling e-commerce logistics.
Its capacity for carrying 200kgs to a distance of 40kms or more autonomously allows the cost of aerial logistics to be reduced 7 times compared to the current air transportation options.
Its DO311A certified Battery and SiC (silicon carbide)-based high voltage propulsion system ensures the aircraft is a zero-carbon emission model with maximum efficiency and safety.
A versatile aerial vehicle it can be utilized in a wide range of areas. Its autonomous sensors and data processing powers allow it to be the ideal craft for search and rescue operations in fire fighting operations or disaster evacuation management plans.
The possibility of delivering emergency medical supplies or mapping hilly terrains for logistical operations will be vastly easier and user-friendly. Its auto-pilot capabilities also make it an excellent probe vehicle for reaching remote locations and functioning in challenging terrains.
