InterDrone 2019 is underway in Las Vegas, Nevada today, bringing together the most influential professionals in the drone world.

There will be plenty of new drones on display but driving the industry today is the insight gained from software and data. Auterion is one company using software to transform what is possible with drone technology, and Dave Sharpin, Vice President and General Manager for the company sent this video of Auterion’s latest offering to MarketScale in advance of the show.

“Our software and hardware ecosystem enables reliable, efficient and safe cargo and package delivery across a wide range of unmanned platforms,” Sharpin said in a LinkedIn post.

MarketScale is also in Las Vegas for the event and can be found at booth 802 on Thursday. Hear live interviews with six industry experts on-location from 11 a.m. PST through 5 p.m. PST, or tune in here.
