An Agronomy Drone With a Mind of Its Own

An Agronomy Drone With a Mind of Its Own

Drones have become common in industries that need to cover a lot of ground like film productions, fossil fuel extraction, archaeological digs, military surveillance, forestry, and agriculture. The field of agronomy has been particularly aided by drones when it comes to studying plant health and management. Drones can capture and analyze small details on individual plants from over a hundred meters high. Farmers are starting to line up for this new technology.
Automated Runway Inspection with GreenSight and Machine Learning

Automated Runway Inspection with GreenSight and Machine Learning

At our recent trip to JIFX 19-3, we got a chance to take some great high-resolution imagery of one of the runways on the base. We’ve been thinking about this application for our platform for some time as it is one that we often get asked about. We leveraged the machine learning stage of our data processing pipeline to generate some automated runway quality criteria, detecting cracks and other issues. This is mostly a proof of concept but something we could easily turn into a production reporting capability.
