Drones offer a vast amount of opportunities for agricultural businesses. But using new technology is never easy. We understand that. And we are on a mission to make using a drone as easy as driving a tractor.
That’s why we have made every effort to understand the needs of agricultural businesses and farmers. And we have developed a drone to meet these exact needs. So, is your business ready?
Flying a Customdrone is easier than driving a tractor.
Easily upload the data gathered from and SD card.
After the analysis is done a task map is generated for your machines.
A Customdrone is designed to withstand dust, wind and rain. And it’s very strong.
What a drone can deliver to your business.
A drone makes treatment of your crop a lot more precise. The data generated will provide detailed insight in variables such as the health of your crop, the greens, the nitrogen content and so on. This data can be used to generate task maps for your gps- equipment.
On average, agricultural firms see their revenues grow by 10% as a result of applying drone technology. Better and more focused treatment of the crop increases the harvest and reduces costs.
The data generated by the drone makes it possible to micro-manage the crop. Applying it only on those areas that need treatment means that less plant protection products will be used. Which will not only benefit the environment but also your cost levels.
Our agricultural drone
So here it is. Our agricultural inspection drone. Designed and built to operate under most circumstances. Dustproof. Waterresistant. And highly robust. Once the drone has completed its tasks, simply fold it in. The large handlebar on top makes it easy to pick up the drone and place it elsewhere.
One drone. Three sensor options.
Agricultural sensors. Below you can easily compare three different agricultural sensors on various aspects. Do you have questions? Feel free to get in touch. We’d be happy to help.
The Laquinta is the most affordable sensor. This has four light bands for generating data. LaQuinta wants to make the step to prescribing agriculture simpler and cheaper by being able to offer new techniques for a good price.
This is the most used sensor on the market. With its five light bands, it is possible to extract more details from a scan. For example, the rededge is suitable for detecting diseased plants or determining how well the crop is growing. The data is then translated into task cards.
The Altum is the most advanced sensor with no less than five light bands. With these light bands you can see everything you want to monitor from your crop. The thermal band was needed to better detect diseases in the crop.
Operating and flying a Customdrone is very simple: the drone can fly autonomously. After you mark a geographic area on a map on a tablet, the drone will calculate the best route to scan this area. And fly autonomously and return after its task is completed. Dutch laws require you to always have the drone in sight and that you are standby to intervene when necessary. In a simple course of just a few hours we’ll teach you how to do so.
The data generated by a Customdrone is stored on an SD-card. You simply upload this to a computer or tablet. You can then perform the analysis yourself, or upload it to a cloud service that will analyse the data for you and generate a report within 24 hours. It can also generate a TASKCARD that you can send to a gps operated machine.
We use a variety of software. All very simple to use and user friendly – but varying in the level of freedom to change settings. The choice is completely depending on your preferences.
A drone is an important piece of machinery for your company. That’s why we believe it should always work. Should a malfunction arise or your drone is damaged in some way, we make sure you have a working drone at your disposal within 24 hours. This could be your repaired drone, or a spare. That’s why we value our 24/7 service.
