Unmanned aerial systems in agriculture. Part 2, Sensors
The emergence of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) has enhanced possibilities of acquiring high-resolution multispectral (i.e., few spectral bands) images of agricultural fields at a temporal resolution controlled by the user. It can lead to easier and faster monitoring of large farms and agricultural decision making. UAS have evolved into an important technology in precision agriculture with multiple companies and agricultural service providers exploring how to integrate it into production management decision making. Sensors are an integral part of UAS technology for its meaningful and efficient use in agriculture.
