Drones have showcased immense potential ever since the machine set up a dedicated market, niche if you may, for itself in the national as well as global markets. Considering the accessibility, easy to use interface, and integration capabilities with multiple other technologies such as measuring units, cameras, or even load carriers, driven by technology.

The investment by Boundary Holding follows a global trend in accord with international interest and intrigue in Artificial Intelligence, besides its utility in surveillance through drones.

The parallel investments in Asteria and XRVision could also help Boundary Holding leverage the potential of AI-based Video Content Analytics as well as actionable drone intelligence from drones – a space which is gathering quite an interest in international markets, in both investment trends and utility.

AI-complaint video analytics and facial recognition technology will shape the future of various industries, majorly that of security and surveillance.
