Why choose the eBee?
The senseFly eBee is a fully autonomous and easy-to-use mapping drone. Use it to capture high-resolution aerial photos you can transform into accurate orthomosaics (maps) & 3D models.
The eBee can cover up to 12 km2 (4.6 mi2) in a single automated mapping flight, while flights over smaller areas, at lower altitudes, can acquire images with a ground sampling distance of down to 1.5 cm (0.6 in) per pixel.
The eBee is the easiest to use mapping drone on the market—just throw it into the air. It then flies, captures images and lands itself. No piloting skills required!
The eBee weighs just 700 g (1.5 lb), vastly minimising its kinetic energy. Plus, senseFly’s cutting-edge autopilot manages a wide range of intelligent failsafe behaviours.
The eBee package contains all you need to start mapping: RGB camera, batteries, radio modem and eMotion software. Then, process and analyse the eBee’s images using software such as Pix4Dmapper (optional).
The eBee sets the standard for easy flight planning and management thanks to its acclaimed eMotion software.
Just choose or create your preferred background map. Then use this to define the region you want to map. Next, simply specify your desired ground resolution (down to 1.5 cm / 0.6 inches per pixel) and set your required image overlap.
The rest is automatic: eMotion automatically generates a full flight plan, based on GPS waypoints, calculates the eBees required altitude and displays its projected trajectory.
To ensure your missions success, eMotion even offers a confidence-building simulation mode. This virtual flight simulates wind strength and direction, allowing you to make any flight plan enhancements needed before launch.
Sequoia Multi-spectral Sensor
Small and Packed With Power
Weighing in at 107 grams, and measuring 59mm x 41mm x 28mm the Sequoia is tiny. But size isn’t all the Sequoia has going for it, it also has incredible data capturing abilities. It has a 16 MP RGB image, great for digital scouting. Equipped with a multi-spectral camera and sensor, this small device can capture red, green, red edge, near infrared. This means that you can capture both visual and multi-spectral data in one flight with one camera! No need to land and swap sensors and do multiple mapping missions of the same area! This sensor also has a sunshine sensor, meaning it can accurately calibrate the camera according to the lighting situation.
Can be used to make Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) maps. This is the perfect all round tool for agriculture and other uses. You get more spectral data than you would by only using an NDVI camera.
Not only can this sensor capture accurate data, but it can store a lot of it too. It has an internal storage capacity of 64GB, which can store up to 10 flights. If that’s not enough storage for you, there’s also an extra SD card slot so you can put a memory card in. You can also access the data easily and quickly with wifi capabilities and USB ports. And thanks to it’s USB port, you don’t have to worry about charging the Sequoia or providing batteries, it gets its power from the drone its attached to.
Designed For Every Drone
The Sequoia is perfect for both fixed wing and multi-rotor drones. And, because of it’s small size and weight, its great for small drones too.
Designed For Agriculture
The Sequoia sensor gathers calibrated data and both visible and invisible pictures, allowing you to keep track of your crop health. The sequoia can help you find problems in your field, control crop irrigation, estimate crop yield, optimize pesticide input, and refine fertilization. This?is the tool you need to be efficient and successful this year.
