An introduction to SUIND

Drones flying everywhere around town has been a science-fiction image for a long time. At SUIND we do our best to make this a reality. The company was founded as a spin-off from the Robotics and Perception Group at the University of Zürich with a core vision: To unlock the potential of drones to benefit our planet and people all around the world.

More and more companies are working on incredible new drone solutions in areas like transportation, agriculture or search and rescue. Looking at these innovations, we realized that full potential of such drones will only be unlocked once they are able to fly fully autonomous missions in any environment.

At SUIND we are focusing on agricultural drones. It is our goal to develop the most advanced crop spraying drones that can fly any mission fully autonomously. But we don't stop there. Adding crop analysis will allow for smart spraying, only where it is actually needed.

Developing such solutions, requires not only hard work and dedication, but also a deep level of understanding and experience in specific areas. We have built a team with extensive expertise in machine learning, computer vision, SLAM, motion planning and control. Furthermore, developing algorithms that are tailored to run on computationally lightweight drone hardware, while not losing their potency, has become one of our specialities.
