P10 Plant Protection Drone

Autonomous & Manual operation, small but efficient

We know that despite modern crop protection products, a considerable fraction of potential food production is still lost every year to pests. Food crops must compete with 30,000 species of weeds, 3,000 nematodes, and 10,000 species of plant-eating insects. These losses can occur while the crop grows in the field in storage and the home. In short, an adequate, reliable food supply cannot be guaranteed without crop protection products including plant protection drones.
 

Modern agriculture is about efficiency and high precision. The past decade has experienced unprecedented agriculture innovations worldwide, including in Australia. Around 80 per cent of new farm equipment sold today has some form of precision agricultural component. Precision farming is all about working smart in the right place at the right time with the right amount. It leads to higher profitability, improved sustainability and increased productivity saving the farmers time and enhances their well-being.

What Are Plant Protection Drones?

Applying spray pesticide with precision equipment, including integrated electronic commutation and variable rate technology, demonstrates the power of digital technology on the farm. It also shows the benefits of like-minded industries working together in this case, where agricultural equipment meets crop protection. In addition to determining pest outbreaks, drones can apply crop protection products. 
 

Together with chemical crop protection products commonly referred to as pesticides or agrochemical products, they play a vital role in controlling the pests and diseases that threaten our food supply.

Compact and Sturdy

Based on the experience of plant protection over 3 million hectares, P10 was designed to achieve maximum flexibility to work with all kinds of terrains; 80% of its components are compatible with P20, which leads to the name—Mini P20.

Easy Maintenance

Modular design makes maintenance incredibly simple and handy. Extra protection on motors and spray nozzles, High-Performance Antenna System. and Foldable Propellers improve the level of safety and portability.

Radar Terrain Tracing and Optic Positioning

Millimetre-wave radar can accurately trace terrain fluctuation up to 30 meters above the ground at all kinds of terrain. This ensures that P10 can fly stably above the perceived terrain type at a relative altitude. 40° coning-angle terrain-tracing keeps variation≤10cm. When GNSS RTK or GPS interferes, the optic positioning module will be activated automatically to reassure flight safety, even at night.

Obstacle Avoidance and Fault Prediction

P10 supports Xcope™ Visual Obstacle Avoidance System. When unmarked obstacles (radius ≥ 5cm) are detected during the flight, P10 will automatically avoid the challenges, even at night.

Enhancing Precision Farming

With plant protection drones, it allows modern, more efficient farm equipment will enable farmers to improve their crops through the following means:


•    More targeted input applications
•    Reduce input costs
•    Benefit the environment due to fewer inputs
•    Reduce work and enhance the quality of life for farmers and labourers
•    Improve profits 


Countries using advanced digital precision technology have reported higher yields per hectare with reduced herbicide and diesel use by 10 and 20 per cent, respectively. On the other hand, modern agricultural machine technology specifically helps farmers with crop protection by:


•    Protecting crops from pests with exact doses and targeted applications of products;
•    Allowing for responsible product use with less exposure;
•    Efficiently using scarce agricultural area and maximising harvest results.

From Drones to Data

Thanks to digital connectivity, the application of plant protection drones can connect the “dots” of data and put them into an optimised order by consulting, for instance, field-specific information from a cloud-based farm management software. Sensors and remote sensing collect data from a distance to evaluate soil and crop health, such as the presence of pests or diseases.


Used mainly for capturing images and providing data, drones permanently monitor a crop from planting to harvest. This data is processed in the cloud and translated into useful information, such as plant health and pest infestations. This data can then be entered into innovative machinery to adjust the number of inputs, such as crop protection products, for a field accordingly. 


They can also help farmers react faster to threats, such as weeds, insects and fungi; save time crop scouting to take appropriate actions; and improve the application of variable input rates in real-time.

AUTO OBSTACLE AVOIDANCE AND FAULT PREDICTION

P10 supports Xcope™ Visual Obstacle Avoidance System. When unmarked obstacles (radius ≥ 5cm) are detected during the flight, P10 will automatically avoid the obstacles, even at night.

Flight logs can be transferred real-time with New Data-Link System and analysed by the AI engine for possible malfunction, notifications will be sent to users to remind them of appropriate actions.

RADAR TERRAIN TRACING AND OPTIC POSITIONING

Millimeter-wave radar can accurately trace terrain fluctuation up to 30 meters above the ground at all kinds of terrain. This ensures that P10 can fly stably at set relative altitude above the perceived terrain type. 40° coning-angle terrain-tracing keeps variation≤10cm. When GNSS RTK or GPS is interfered, optic positioning module will be activated automatically to reassure flight safety, even at nights.
