Spaying accuracy is one of the most important reasons that the fully automatic drones are not widely used in the pesticide spraying application. The accuracy is mainly constraint by the GPS positioning accuracy.
I’m a hobbyist in Pixhawk. I use Pixhawk auto mode to fly my RC model airplanes quite well. They could follow the flight path very stably and precisely after I carefully tuned the parameters. My fixed wings with Pixhawk almost could do everything I w
It seems that multirotors have to be powered by the expensive battery. And the helicopter can use engine and could have much larger load. I’m wondering what’s the advantage of multirotor compared with helicopter in the agricultural UAVs pesticide spr
What is the typically cruising (during pesticide spraying) speed of agricultural duster UAV? It looks like it flies quite slowly when it’s spraying the pesticide. Why don’t people increase the spraying efficiency by increasing the cruising speed (and
I notice that there are two kinds of sprayers used in agricultural pesticide spraying system. Yamaha uses jet sprayer (figure1). Besides that, centrifugal sprayers are also used (widely?) in some agriculture UAVs (figure2 and 3) spraying systems.
