The eBee Ag is a ‘fixed wing’ supplied by SenseFly and is specifically made for drone mapping in agriculture. With the eMotion software, the flight plan can be optimized in altitude, speed and position even under windy conditions, for an ideal resolution and overlap of images. The fixed wing is designed to be setup within minutes for a flexible and easy use on site.
Besides a regular RGB camera, the eBee Ag can be equipped with a specialized multispectral camera as well. With this camera, data can be gathered within several narrow bands at the same time for specialized analysis. These bands are combined in to several indices, like a NDVI.
Additionally the multispectral camera calibrates each image on light intensity with a light sensor on top of the camera. With the sensor, images can be compared consistently under sunny and cloudy conditions.
