Our Story

High Tech Rooted in Years of Research

Voliro’s story started in 2016 in the Autonomous Systems Lab (ASL) at ETH Zurich as a student focus-project to develop an omnidirectional flying inspection robot. Our co-founders, Mina Kamel and Timo Müller, focussed on the Voliro technology and optimised the system for their PhD and Master theses, respectively. Anurag Vempati, who developed the concept of flying spraying robots during his PhD sponsored by Disney Research, was the next to join as a co-founder. Mentored by Prof. Roland Siegwart, the team made rapid technological advances. Prof. Siegwart brought in two more robotics experts, Marius Fehr and Thomas Schneider, to complete the founding team. In 2019 Voliro was founded as a company. With admission to Wyss Zurich, a joint accelerator from the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich, Voliro was ready to take off.

Our engineering team consists of graduates from the renowned ETH Zurich, ranked 3rd university in the world for engineering and technology (Top Universities, 2019). The team members are among the leading research engineers in drone technology.
