The drone flies autonomously above, between or under the crops. Due to the very small size of the drone, 75cm of space is enough. The user defines the flight plan on the laptop or mobile and the drone follows it fully automatically. Cameras on the drone recognise the environment and the drone does not need a GPS signal. This makes automatic and safe flying in greenhouses possible.

Sensors and cameras 

De drone is geschikt voor het gebruik van diverse camera’s zoals RGB, multi-spectraal en IR. Corvus werkt samen met veel bedrijven die de drone als drager voor hun eigen camera en toepassing gebruiken. Na de dronevlucht worden de gewasbeelden (foto’s of film) geüpload  en vindt data-processing plaats. De data worden vervolgens bewerkt met de Artificial Intelligence software. De voordelen:

  • De drone vliegt automatisch en kan door iedereen worden bediend.
  • De drone is zeer licht en veroorzaakt weinig turbulentie.
  • De drone is een universele carrier voor verschillende camera’s.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the collective name for (software) applications that can perform complex tasks without the need for the human brain. This clever software is also becoming increasingly popular in horticulture. The AI software recognises the raw data from the drone and converts this recognition into usable numbers. Every crop looks different, and the AI software is trained for that specific crop.

Free data-sets for AI-developers

Help increase the availability of crop information and accelerate innovation. We make free crop datasets (raw image data) available and invite AI-developers to use them. We are happy to support successful ideas and applications. Please send us your dataset request or click here if you have a question.
