John Deere and Kespry today announced an exclusive global strategic alliance through which John Deere Construction & Forestry dealers will provide the Kespry Aerial Intelligence System to their customers on job sites around the world. 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," said Andrew Kahler, product marketing manager, 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 job site and spend less time on jobs." Founded in 2013, Kespry 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 easily create a mission with the touch of a finger, then capture, analyze and share survey-grade data and insights.
