07 Jun Sentera Adds Autonomous UAV Flight Planning to AgVault™ 2.0 Mobile App
End-to-End NDVI Precision Agriculture Solution
Sentera announced the addition of autonomous UAV route planning to its AgVault™ 2.0 mobile app. The added capability works with the DJI Phantom 4, Phantom 3, and Inspire families of products and provides the agriculture industry with an affordable, end-to-end normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) solution. AgVault allows farmers to highlight a field, autonomously fly a UAV, capture precise imagery, manage data, produce QuickTile™ maps, and deliver data to a piece of equipment, all at the field edge.
Autonomous UAV Flight Planning
“The AgVault 2.0 flight planning feature is an important advancement for growers and advisors. The software takes the guesswork out of UAV navigation, and delivers instant visibility to crop health,” said Kris Poulson, Vice President of Agriculture for Sentera. “A grower simply launches the UAV, then AgVault Mobile ensures high-quality imagery is captured exactly where the user desires.”
The app allows the operator to select the UAV’s altitude, sensor configuration, overlap, sideslip, and an area on their field to survey. The UAV launches from within the app, autonomously flies the predetermined route and automatically returns upon completion.
Complete Syncing Across Devices
The AgVault 2.0 Software is comprised of desktop, mobile, and cloud components that automatically synchronize data with one another. The software can be used with any sensor, drone, and equipment, and is compatible with most popular prescriptive analytics tools. Sentera’s AgVault 2.0 Software does not require an internet connection to operate, allowing growers to make data-driven crop health decisions at the field edge.
Sentera’s AgVault 2.0 Mobile App flight planning feature is part of the AgVault 2.0 Software solution, available today with a free trial. Visit www.sentera.com/agvault to learn more about the offering.
