A company specializing in wireless networking technology for drones and robotics systems has completed the first-ever drone inspection of California's largest single-stem tree.

Doodle Labs released a video showcasing the event, which was part of a health inspection of the General Sherman giant sequoia in the remote Giant Forest of Sequoia National Park. The May inspection, conducted in partnership with the U.S. Department of the Interior, used a Freefly-brand drone equipped with a Doodle Labs radio.

The Doodle Labs mesh radio technology helps keep drones and other equipment stay connected in environments like Sequoia National Park, where standard wireless connections are unavailable.
