Agricultural-robotics technology company enabling a modular swarm of autonomous drones for spraying

Project description

Spraying crops using a swarm of drones

Farmers will one day soon be able to push a button and send a swarm of autonomous drones to spray their fields. This is the technology that the EU funded Skyx project is proposing. It uses proprietary algorithms for complex space coverage. For instance, each drone in the group can have a different payload, speed, width and time. It is also possible to manoeuvre the drones to ensure homogeneous farmland coverage or ‘hot spots’ coverage. One of the key benefits of this technology is that it can ‘compile’ the terrain, as well as the crops, pesticides and the available machinery into an optimised mission planning, allowing for the auto-piloting of the robot drones. Skyx will test this technology in various agriculture service providers and validate a business model.
