Aerial photos of forests, farms, and vineyards taken by flying robots / drones bring a whole new dimension to the estimation of agricultural growth, output, and insurance claims.
Soaring approximately 100 to 200 feet over the surface, an AIR6 flying robot shoots high-resolution photos at pre-defined distances, which software then assembles into a panorama. The details in these pictures are so sharp that growth rates, weeds, pest infestations and more can be immediately evaluated.
With the help of special stitching software, the computer assembles individual photographs into a panorama. In our example, about 40 individual pictures were taken from an altitude of 200 feet and automatically assembled. The panorama file can add up to several gigabytes of data.

Airborne Robotics MFS (Mission Flight System): With just a few clicks, you can find and mark your intended flight path on Google Maps. The MFS software calculates your route and indicates the various trajectories and battery swaps along the whole flight path. You can even adjust the total flight time and maximum picture quality/resolution at various focal lengths. The flight plan is graphically overlaid as a layer directly in Google Maps. To get started, just relay the flight data from your PC to the AIR6 flight control using the remote control.
The analysis and evaluation of different seedings and the resulting crop yield is now easier than ever. Using the appropriate software, a computer counts every sprout on the field, taking only minutes even for larger fields. Not only can the software identify and count trees and plants, it can also recognize and tally individual animals in a herd.
