Applications for precision agriculture

Agricultural supply chains, sustainability, preventive and corrective strategies

A valid support to agricultural operators for the identification of preventive and corrective strategies on crops and to recognize the possible presence of phytopathologies. It involves the survey of crops with drones and ground robots, automated diagnostics of health status and analysis of growth and vegetative vigor for the improvement of quality and yield of agricultural products, with a strong focus on environmental sustainability.

Data acquisition is achieved through the use of a system that integrates agro-climatic sensors (Environmental Smart Sensor-ESS), a Remotely Piloted Aircraft (APR) and a Remote Guidance Vehicle (VGR), both equipped with multispectral sensors and lidar sensor.
