AutoModality is the global leader in advanced UAV flight control software for use in infrastructure inspection, including bridges, culverts, rolling-stock and cell towers. AutoModality creates fully-autonomous mobile systems that enhance the effectiveness, efficiency, and safety of inspections and that also reduce future maintenance. Our Perceptive Navigation technology platform enables our UAV systems to fly autonomously in GPS-denied locations and to fly close to the asset being inspected to ensure the quality and repeatability of data collection.

AutoModality, founded in 2014, is a strategic partner of DJI and is a portfolio company of The SkyFund, backed by DJI and Accel. AutoModality won the 2016 DJI SDK Challenge and the 2017 Genius NY business competition, the world’s largest for unmanned systems.
