The Bluegrass Multipurpose Quadcopter for Agriculture from Parrot is designed to give quick feedback to farmers, saving the time and effort in manually inspecting and testing crops and herds. The Bluegrass includes three batteries, and each one provides the drone with enough power to cover up to 30 hectares of area at an altitude of 230'. Low altitudes are also possible if more precision and accuracy are required. The Bluegrass is purposely designed to be easy to fly and repair, and with Pix4Dcapture and autonomous flight capabilities, the Bluegrass can perform its duties automatically.
The Bluegrass is equipped with two cameras. One is a video camera that's capable of snapping 14MP images or taking Full HD 1080p video. The second camera features the Parrot Sequoia multispectral sensor, which is designed to take up to 16MP invisible images in order to generate reporting on your crop's health and vitality. There is also a sunshine sensor on the top of the Bluegrass drone that's designed to log lighting conditions, provide precise GPS and IMU geo-tagging information, as well as providing an SD card slot for additional storage.
The Bluegrass drone's visual data can provide you with infrastructure information, crop scouting, and livestock monitoring across your entire farm. The Sequoia's data can be processed using the AIRINOV FIRST+ agriculture mapping cloud solution. AIRINOV FIRST+ will process the crop data the Sequoia captures, providing you with actionable intelligence. Altogether, the Bluegrass drone and included software can give you the information you need to quickly address problems and maximize the ROI of your farm.
