Remote Sensing Applied to Precision Agriculture

Water issue adressed: Too much

We are Manuel Martínez, Joan Viñallonga and Marc Pérez, students from the technological field. Our research project is called Remote sensing applied to precision agriculture.

Our goal is to reduce the high water consumption in agriculture with new technologies. A multispectral camera coupled to a drone alongside an analysis of data obtained after multiple flights can help to reduce this consumption.

Besides, we have focused on helping small farmers in our area monitoring and controlling their crops to improve productivity and have a more efficient use of water.

In the long term, we would like to altruistically help farmers around the world since the agricultural sector is where more water is used and also wasted.

This is how I came up with the idea for this project:

Our project came up with the idea to help small farmers around our city to increase productivity and decrease the consumption of water. As we take the technological course we thought of using new technologies such as drones to accomplish our goals.
