Vic Pellicano is CEO and Founder of Avianna, a Chicago-based software company working to bridge the gap between hardware and software excellence in the robotics industry. Avianna offers a suite of products that utilize artificial intelligence to enable drones and other robots to understand human language and operate autonomously. Their software enhances mission execution and simplifies data analysis and reporting. Imagine being able to command your drones or check on the status of your fleet using simple commands in English, such as “find a missing person” or “which drones are scheduled for missions today”
Vic is a successful entrepreneur in the software industry. Prior to starting Avianna, he launch Verenia in 2012, an e-commerce software company. After a decade of growth, Verenia was acquired by Oracle in 2022. With an interest in robotics, Vic turned his attention to making the interaction of humans and robots more seamless and intuitive. He launched Avianna in early 2023 with the aim of helping UAS manufactures make more responsive and intelligent unmanned vehicles.
In this edition of the Drone Radio Show, Vic talks about the company’s suite of AI-powered solutions and how we will soon be able to communicate with our drones via text.
