Last week Skydio CEO Adam Bry launched the long-teased Skydio Dock and Remote Ops software platform via a streamed event. Right from the start, he explained that the aim of this product was to “break the one-to-one dependence between the pilot and drones.” 

Bry continued by stating that “enabling drones to do work on their own is an extremely powerful concept; in fact, it’s the future of the industry for most applications.” That is where their new Skydio Dock will step in – providing a safe home the drone can take off and land from, before going on to operate self-piloted missions.
