Industrial Networks (INet) is launching a drone that it says is “capable of fully autonomous scanning of the railyard for inventory and inspection of a railcar”. The company has been developing the drone since 2005, and last year applied to the authorities for a drone flying licence.
INet says the drone has transformed the rail industry for shippers and provided tools to automate the complete process of rail and truck shipping.

This automation reduces the occurrence of errors and improves overall productivity for shippers across North America. [Read more…] about Industrial Networks prepares to launch rail automation drone
