VOTIX drone platform integrates Iris Automation’s safety tech
Drone automation platform VOTIX is joining forces with detect-and-avoid aviation tech specialist Iris Automation to streamline remote operations for enterprises that require flexible beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) drone deployments.
