… as a spin-off of Prof. Dr. Roland Siegwart’s Autonomous Systems Lab, at ETH Zurich in Switzerland. The project is rooted in years of ambitious robotic research in vertical take-off & landing technology of tail-sitting UAVs where its control algorithms enable autonomous transition from hovering to plane-like flying.

… is located in Zürich – a vibrant city also known as the Silicon Valley of robotics. Its ever growing multinational team is an eclectic blend of young entrepreneurs, brilliant minded software developers and engineers, service-oriented sales and dedicated technical support, who share a common vision of what the future of unmanned aerial robots should look like.
