Press release from: Apellix

Apellix, the safety partner for the technological revolution, is proud to announce that as part of the AkzoNobel “Paint the Future” event, the companies will enter into a Joint Development Agreement for the Apellix Computer Controlled Spray painting drone.

Apellix has created software-controlled aerial robot systems (drones) that allows them to fly, under full computer control, up to structures and spray paint using traditional spray-painting equipment. The Apellix proof of concept of their autonomous spray painting aerial robotic system was debuted almost 3 years ago. Since that time they have been developing the electronics, sensor arrays, and software to precisely control the aerial system from onboard the aircraft enabling both a tethered system where the paint, spray compressor, and power is kept on the ground and an untethered system wherein a reservoir of paint is carried by the aircraft.

As part of the development of the precision flight control Apellix has developed aerial robotic systems that fly, under full computer control, up to structure such as elevated water tanks, silos, chimneys, ships and bridges where their robotic arm makes contact with the surface thus allowing a sensor to test the integrity of the structure.

The Apellix precision-controlled aerial robotics systems utilize tethered and untethered drones to move workers from harm’s way. Other additional uses of the Apellix platform - in addition to contact-based non-destructive testing and spray painting - include attaching sensors to structures such as bridges, windmill blade cleaning and coating, spray painting, graffiti removal, and the spraying of toxic chemicals. The potential applications of the Apellix system are almost endless.
