IMGING & Drone Inspections
IMGING™ is an insurance-specific solution for automating drone-based property inspections and streamlining insurance workflows. It consists of drone hardware that is controlled by web and mobile software and is built on a cloud infrastructure for data processing, storage and transport. IMGING software (web and mobile) handles things like job creation and management, flight planning and the generation of inspection reports. The IMGING mobile app also executes autonomous inspections on site. IMGING feeds the results of these inspections directly into underwriting and claims workflows to allow insurance companies to make better decisions, faster.
No. IMGING is a toolset that insurance companies, independent adjusters, and contractors use to greatly simplify property inspections. Many of our partners are drone service providers that use IMGING in the course of their routine activities. If you’re looking for help with drone service providers, we can help.
The IMGING app is used to create an autonomous flight plan based upon inputs from the operator (for example, what portions of a roof to scan and what obstructions to avoid). Once defined, the app builds the flight plan, connects to DJI drones through DJI’s LightBridge protocol and controls it throughout the flight until completion or unless the operator initiates manual flight mode.
Yes. In the field, the IMGING app needs to retrieve job details and flight plans from the IMGING server, as well as report on job completion. This means that each tablet must have cellular connectivity.
