How does all this work?
To carry out our precision viticulture services at the highest quality, we use the best hardware and software tools, the best UAS (Unmanned Aerial System – Drones), and of course, our know-how in the field.
To sum it all up in a nutshell, the whole process is based on data acquisition (drone flights), image processing (advanced software with Artificial Intelligence technology), and the generation of reports and suggested action plans for the client.
More technically speaking, it’s all about light. Yes, it is that simple and that complex at the same time. By capturing data within specific wavelength ranges across the electromagnetic spectrum, we are able to generate “multispectral images” which we then calibrate and analyse in detail to see “what the human eye cannot see“: NDVI, vigour, water stress, etc.
The subtle but tremendously important difference between a stressed plant and a healthy one is virtually imperceptible to the human eye (visible Red, Green and Blue spectrum). In contrast, this precision becomes visible with multispectral imaging, especially through the NIR (Near Infrared) spectrum.
