Arche 2023

To test our improvements on the drone in a realistic setting, we spent a hole week at ARCHE 23. We were able to screw a wooden plate into a hole that we drilled into concrete building.

Baublatt: "Ein fliegendes Sackmesser"

"Ingenieurs-Studierende der ETH Zürich haben eine Drohne entwickelt, mit der sich ferngesteuert Bohrmaschinen und andere Geräte an hohe Orte befördern lassen. Der Drohnenbohrer «Aithon» soll den Bau eines Gerüsts überflüssig machen und dabei helfen, Sturzunfälle zu vermeiden." Artikel

Getting started at Büro Züri

At the yearly event, past years start-ups gave us helpful insights into their time at Büro Züri and we were able to present our project to a wide audience.

Pitch-Night at ZKB

We won a highly-contested spot at Büro Züri Innovationspark!

Alongside several other innovative start-ups, we will be working at Büro Züri Innovationspark in 2023. After being pre-selected, the final 10 teams had several minutes to convince the jury of the potential of their product and the innovative spirit of the team. We are looking forward to this opportunity - located at Innovation Park Zürich, this co-working space allows to combine testing with development. Further, we can profit from the extensive community of innovators and entrepreneurs!

ARCHE 22

To test the drone in more realistic setting, we spent three days at ARCHE22. We experienced flights with slight wind and were able to prove that the system is robust enough for manipulation on large structures.

Innovatica 2022

A wonderful summer day at Innovatica 2022

After months of testing at Innovation Park Switzerland in Dübendorf, we were able  to open the garage doors and show many excited faces the drone in action. At the same time, we were able to show reliability and user-friendliness by letting anyone have a go at aerial robotics!
