Agricultural drone, also called an “agricultural unmanned vehicle”, is an aircraft that flies over the Earth’s surface in order to capture images, generate maps, capture soil conditions and spray pesticides .WWZ is a company located in Xi’an China that works with drones and offers services for the agricultural sector.
Drones are a tool of precision. Thanks to the development of flight control,spraying technology and aerial pesticide, now fly overhead, drone’s cameras scan for targets. The agri-drone is a small-scale adaptation of the same premise. This kind of agri-drone scans crops for clusters of bugs, and then delivers a precision dose of pesticide to the plant-eating critters below.
Agriculture has come a long way thanks to heavy equipment like tractors and combines. However, the next big leap in factory farming could be coming in a much smaller package. Usually agricultural drone is capable of carrying up to 5-15 kilograms of liquid, it can cover 3 acres per hour at flying speed of 10m/second. In addition, it is able to adjust its spraying intensity in order to ensure even coverage.
The drone is dustproof, water-resistant and made of anti-corrosive material. Its four replaceable ceramic nozzles are each powered by separate motors and the drone can be folded for easy storage and transportation.
Users can control the drone manually with a custom remote or allow it to operate autonomously. In the latter case, the drone scans the terrain below it in real-time, automatically maintaining its altitude and distance from crops. This is so called autopilot system.
Agriculture drone can save time and money and it willt be a good thing. The current regulations for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the United States require users to obtain a Certificate of Waiver or Authorization from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in order to operate UAVs in national airspace. Individual requests for exemption are required for commercial or business purposes.
