A new generation of high precision multispectral sensor with automatic radiometric calibration
Tools dedicated to precision agriculture help farmers and agronomists optimize the ROI of their crops and improve their daily productivity. This high precision and analysis enable farming experts to make well-informed decisions efficiently.
Parrot has recently developed Parrot Sequoia+, a new generation of its multispectral sensor that allows you to automatically calibrate multispectral images using Pix4Dmapper or Pix4Dag without the need of a calibration target. This results in a better user experience, as well as more consistent reflectance calculations.
The combination of Parrot Sequoia+ with Pix4D is an illustration of the combined hardware and software expertise delivered by Parrot Business Solutions. This approach showcases exactly what the Parrot Group brings to professionals, notably in the agricultural sector, by providing high-value drone solutions that are both reliable and affordable, thus offering an optimized user experience.
Parrot Sequoia+ & Pix4D: Precise data guarantees accurate analysis
Thanks to Pix4D’s new radiometric processing pipeline, Parrot Sequoia+ enables a more consistent evaluation of collected data and improves the user experience by removing the need for a reflectance target.
Farmers and agronomists are able to access absolute reflectance measurements, saving them time and providing them with highly accurate vegetation index maps (such as NDVI and NDRE) and in-depth analysis.
Parrot’s R&D department worked alongside Pix4D to create target-less calibration, enabling very precise crop data capture.
Thanks to the exceptional precision delivered by this solution, this data can be used to:
· Visualise & understand the crop health by using very accurate vegetation indices.
· Monitor the evolution of a crop (propagation of a disease or the effect of a treatment).
· Generate management zones and track the progress of seeding efforts.
· Optimise fertilizer strategies to improve overall productivity.
· Export accurate map outputs into farm management platforms.
Parrot Sequoia+ is available to buy from the end of April 2018 on Parrot’s distribution network, parrot.com, Pix4D.com and also via senseFly’s distribution network, sensefly.com.
