Our mission is to provide real-time aerial data from anywhere in the world on demand. Getting the data should be as easy as browsing the internet, so that everyone will be able to collect and access the data regardless of location. The data will be collected using a fleet of modular drones that communicate with each other.
At the end of this academic year, we want to have developed a prototype of the drone with a modular sensor compartment. It should already be possible to detach and attach different sensor modules. Thermal, carbon dioxide and photosynthesis modules will be developed. This year, we will focus on the agriculture sector. We will measure gas concentrations in the air, photosynthesis of plants and the heat signature of animals. Our first use-case is Herenboeren, where we can perform test measurements and attempt to classify biodiversity and animals based on the data.
