Our Vision: Making scalable hardware development as simple as deploying a website.
Our offering has two parts:
- Tessel: Tessel is a hardware development platform that makes it incredibly simple to connect sensors & actuators to the internet. Tessel broadens the pool of hardware developers building IoT devices & makes prototyping a connected device 10x faster than ever before. Tessel's automated scaling services means developers can order small (100-1k) to medium-sized (1k-10k) volumes without taking on the risk of sourcing or manufacturing themselves.
- Fractal: With Fractal we'll be able to assemble hardware designs, highlight firmware & hardware optimization paths, & build a circuit board... all from a developer's code. Users will be able to prototype on Tessel development boards & optimize their application onto custom hardware that we can build for them at larger scale (10k+).
We're initially targeting industrial and agricultural use cases and will expand from there.
In 2015, 3DR launched the Solo drone with Smart Shots. Solo allows anyone to create professional aerial film, without the need for multiple drone pilots working in tandem (hence the name, Solo).
3DR now has partnered with Autodesk and Sony to offer Site Scan, the intuitive, powerful and open aerial analytics platform. Site Scan democratizes aerial imagery data capture with intuitive drone-based data capture and one click integration to the Autodesk cloud.
The ability to capture near-real time, actionable 2D and 3D data at worksites, which can then be directly used in Autodesk tools such as BIM360, InfraWorks, Revit, and Civil3D has never been easier.
