“Drones are cool,” says Mickey Cowden, “but the longer I worked with them, I realized I spent more time setting up the drones or troubleshooting hardware issues before I could do anything productive. I have spent a lot of time changing batteries, charging batteries, and offloading data. I got tired of doing that, and I thought, ‘this could be done without the person doing all the logistics.'”
So he founded Cowden Technologies, which has designed a smart docking station for drones, enabling remote environment management without requiring human supervision.
