Pix4D takes its UAV mapping software expertise to also offer a beta program for their Pix4Dfields interface for the agriculture industry. Pix4Dfields offers fast and accurate maps while in the field, as a simple yet powerful interface fully dedicated to agriculture. This product addresses all your drone-based agriculture workflows.
“Our solution fits the needs of the agriculture industry and we believe Pix4Dfields will become a staple tool, just like a meter is for a construction site worker”, Christoph Strecha, Pix4D CEO said.
Agriculture is one of—if not the biggest industry in the world.
The production of food is critical to the world’s populations. To feed everyone, the combination of sensors, drones, machine learning, advanced analytics and mathematical algorithms all come together to provide efficiency and accuracy for the agricultural industry.
Pix4Dfields, aerial crop analysis was created to cater to all primary agricultural practices.
The company opened a new office in July 2017 Berlin to address the agricultural industry. The resulting technology was new fast processing that provides accurate and instant results with an easy-to-use interface and tools designed for agricultural workflows.
