Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) based crop monitoring service


The Institute for Bio-economy and Agri-technology (iBO – CERTH) has extended expertise in agritechnologies and digital agriculture conducting research and providing tools for digital agricultural solutions to the farming community. Via DigiAgriFood, we are striving to disseminate our knowhow to the relevant stakeholders, including agricultural consultants, individual farmers of farm managers. iBO is providing targeted services, tailored to the current digital needs for real field operations that are at mature level of implementation.

The Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) based crop monitoring service offers the user all visual information gathered by a big fleet of UAVs using a wide array of sensors (RGB, multispectral, hyperspectral and thermal cameras).


The users with this service can have access to multiple layers of information by taking advantage of the wide array of available sensors. Users through this service can get an instant overview of crop status via vegetation indices (NDVI, EVI, SAVI) and their fusion for selected fields.

Every single piece of information taken by the UAV fleet is presented in a well-organized and comprehensive web platform that allows the user to have access to data timelines and remotely monitor growth, infestations, and other critical field indicators.
