Real-time remote sensing allows growers to diagnose areas of stress in their crop and address the underlying issues immediately. Our technology allows farmers to reduce their fertilizer inputs and treat blight in its earliest stages.
Below are some composite images generated using our multispectral imaging system. Healthier crop is red, while regions of stress are in blue. These images allow growers to identify problems and anomalies at a glance, saving time, money and energy and preventing potentially catastrophic losses from flooding, improper irrigation, insects, or disease.
Our system consists of a fixed-wing aircraft integrated with a custom multispectral imaging system, a wireless communications module used to transmit commands and receive live video from the aircraft, and computer software that performs basic analysis and uploads data to the cloud for further processing.
Grovio was founded by two college students from Southwest Virginia with over five years of experience in unmanned aerial systems design.
