Drone Solutions for a Quieter Future
The majority of noise emitted from UAVs is generated by its propellers. This noise is a significant issue when operating around humans and animals, and restricts their use in commercial applications.
To solve this problem, the team at Dotterel develop award-winning, lightweight propeller shrouds made from sound-absorbing acoustic materials, and low noise propellers. These passive technologies reduce noise pollution as experienced from the ground.
Dotterel also develops on-board audio enabling technologies. These are software and hardware solutions for enhancing direct sound recording capability from the UAV.
