Mobile robots and drones already in use today for numerous applications: Agriculture, transport, construction, law enforcement, security, etc.
The growth in the drones sector is 300% on an annual basis
The vast majority of applications consist of a single manually operateddrone: Few autonomous drones solutions with no or limited centralized intelligence
Single drone solutions face numerous limitations: Mission duration and range, number of sensors
Using multiple autonomous drones simultaneously is a promising solution: Very few companies propose this approach for civilian applications These solutions do not rely on real swarm intelligence
SIMMS brings swarming intelligence to off the shelf drones or other types of robots.
SIMMS application allows the end user to predetermine an area that needs to be covered by the swarm and the type of mission that needs to be carried out.
The heart of the system is our plug and play smart box forms the brain of each device. It contains the flying intelligence, the communication systems with other devices and base station, and the link with other sensorial capabilities of the drone.
The embedded AI technology is the result of years of research at the University of Luxembourg by a team of renowned experts with experience in military projects (European Defense Agency, US Navy).

SIMMS has identified a number of immediate opportunities in areas where drones are already been used and where AI technology would represent an immense boost to the deployment of even more drones.
Large storage facilities needs constant monitoring against intrusion/ access, fire, etc. Currently this monitoring is carried out by fixed cameras and a handful of security guards. This monitoring set-up is costly, shows significant faults and short-comings and depends highly on human intervention. Drones can carry out these type of multi-mission flights in a swarm and provide an optimal and quick coverage.
Degassing and oil dumping is a frequent issue for port authorities and very expensive and ineffective monitoring technologies is currently being used to deter ships from degassing (helicopters). Drones can escort vessels and monitor their behavior.
Missing people in swamps, forests, isolated valleys, etc. take up lots of human resources, expensive flight time with often very limited results. Equipped with a variety of sensors, our drones leave no stone unturned.
Yield and energy management in agriculture is increasingly carried out by drones, piloted by humans, covering small areas per flight. Swarms cover large areas in an effective way.
Transit zones are often the lieu of large drug exchanges, law enforcement do not always have the means of surveilling large areas. Drone swarms can.
