John Deere, Kespry unite for drone integration

New features of the Kespry Drone 2 are designed to deliver greater accuracy and reliability.

John Deere and Kespry forged a global alliance through which John Deere Construction & Forestry dealers will provide the Kespry aerial intelligence system.

Starting in North America, the alliance enables John Deere customers to use Kespry’s fully integrated industrial drone platform to capture topographic data in minutes with survey-grade accuracy.

“This technology will help our dealers offer a seamless workflow to site development and road building contractors from project planning through grading dirt,” says Andrew Kahler, product marketing manager at John Deere WorkSight. “The data gathered from the Kespry system will help our customers and equipment operators make decisions that reduce costs and improve productivity as they optimize the jobsite and spend less time on jobs.”

According to Kespry, it delivers a fully automated drone system that takes off, flies a designated flight path and lands – all without operator intervention. With the Kespry Drone 2s now available across the John Deere network, customers can create a mission with the touch of a finger, then capture, analyze and share survey-grade data and insights.

“Our relationship with John Deere will accelerate the adoption of drone solutions in industrial markets and will rapidly change how business is done in construction, road building and other industrial sectors,” says George Mathew, chairman and CEO of Kespry. “These advanced aerial intelligence systems are already changing the face of work in industrial markets as surveyors and contractors are able to retool their skillsets for this increasingly connected world.”

John Deere chose Kespry based on its interoperability with John Deere WorkSight technologies and ease of use for customers, Kespry says. Kespry will now work with John Deere dealers to train and certify them in the use of the Kespry 2s platform.
