Yeah, sure. I studied Computer Science at the ETH Zurich from 2001 to 2007, where I also wrote my doctoral thesis. Since then I have always worked as a software developer or IT professional in different industries.
The integration with hardware systems is always challenging by itself, but having to deal with communication delays, asynchronicity etc. makes it challenging to develop a stable application that sits on top of all the low level layers.

WhatsApp - the simplicity and web integration of this communication platform is just fantastic. SwitzerlandMobility - an app that guides you on your outdoor journeys in Switzerland with fantastic and detailed maps.
We’ve been working on it for two years now. But the process is not over. The app is constantly being expanded and improved, especially since the commercial drone market is just in its beginning stages.
Needs of hobby pilots: Do cool things with an as easy and flexible tool as a Swiss Pocket Knife. They want to take nice and cinematographic photos and videos, learn new drone flying skills with the utmost safety. Needs of professional pilots: Get high quality footage in less time, gain more money, highest possible safety, grow his/her business, get competitive advantage in his/her geographical area.
The unique and market-first benefits of using the Drone Harmony app include: - Full automation: Plan generation, obstacle avoidance and flights are done automatically. - Full 3D interface: All interactions from objects' definitions through plan generation to the flight itself are visualized in 3D to eliminate uncertainty and errors. - Better quality in less time: Collection of ultra-high resolution images and videos, precise and fully reproducible in a fraction of the time. - Easy to use and learn: Intuitive interfaces, full visualization, training in less than 30 minutes. Business intelligence derived from drone data is only as good as the data that is used to generate it. Drone Harmony automates mission planning in the most challenging vertical inspection scenarios, guaranteeing high quality, reproducible data collection by pilots with minimal training. The benefit for drone businesses is a reliable and scalable data acquisition process tailored for each industry and use case.
Without disclosing too much, I can tell you that we are working on adding more flight patterns, features targeting improved user experience and interfacing with our web based platform. Users are also welcome to influence our development roadmap by posting and voting on ideas.droneharmony.com.
