Itongadol.- Sensilize provides drone-enabled color imaging of fields as well as interpreted maps to enable optimal agricultural decisions. The emerging field of precision agriculture is based on observing, measuring and responding to crops with smart technology. Drones — also called unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or unmanned aerial systems (UAS) – are giving farmers new possibilities, such as crop-dusting without a plane, but can also be integrated with smart technology.
Drones- the future of precision agriculture
Sensilize uses a micro-UAS platform to map fields with an integrated application-driven sensor called Robin-Eye, whose eight-band calibrated sensor provides ultra-high-resolution multispectral images of vegetation in almost all light conditions.
Sensilize’s cloud-based Robin-Mind software automatically analyzes these images and then – within 24 hours — provides the farmer with a true color image of the area as well as interpreted maps to enable optimal decisions to enhance efficiency, maximize yield and minimize resources.
Sensilize was founded at the beginning of 2013 by Yoav Zur and Robi Stark, who have doctorates and nearly 20 years of experience in environmental remote sensing and mapping of vegetation, soil and water quality. Their previous remote sensing-based company was acquired by Elbit Systems in 2008. After leaving Elbit, they spent a year meeting with agronomists in Israel and other countries to pinpoint market needs before founding Sensilize
