The startup Sky Tronic, by designing and producing novel steering and flight control systems for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or drones, has improved the precise use of these drones on special missions in difficult terrain and weather conditions.

Sofia, November 15th, 2018. The Polish startup Sky Tronic has been recognised as the best European startup in the IoT category at StartUp Europe Awards (SEUA), an initiative of the European Commission and the Finnova Foundation in collaboration with Startup Europe.

Justyna Gudaszewska, Board Member at Sky Tronic commented: “Being honoured with the extraordinary award in Internet of Things category on behalf of the entire team, especially the authors of fuzzy logic technology from Wroclaw University of Science and Technology who have brought Sky Tronic from a concept to reality to stabilise the flying motorcycle, Hoverbike proves that we are on the right track to launch our precise steering and stabilisation system for producers of drones in life, mountain, fire rescue, monitoring of construction all over the Europe from European Union funds.  Moreover, the recognition as Best Female Entrepreneur is not only an appreciation of my personal hard work but all female entrepreneurs in Poland and Europe following their dreams. I’m grateful that European Commission and Finnova promotes the entrepreneurship regardless of the sex or nationality.

Sky Tronic based in Wroclaw, Poland  is “spin-off” company by Wroclaw University of Science and Technology. Sky Tronic designs fuzzy logic controller systems for novel autonomous steering and stabilizing of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or drones in difficult weather and terrain conditions for application in life rescue and monitoring of construction objects. The fuzzy logic rules or artificial intelligence algorithms observe, steer the flying object more precisely to accommodate to unpredictable events and enable more safe and stable flight in strong wind or dropping the payload in real time.
