Machinery company CNH Industrial, has a new, all-in-one drone system bundle for job site managers looking to incorporate drones into their work. And its using DroneDeploy drone mapping app to power the software behind it.
DroneDeploy on Thursday announced an OEM partnership with the company, which is one of the largest truck makers in Europe best known for its Iveco trucks and buses and also makes agricultural equipment.
The drone system bundle will give users a DroneDeploy software subscription and a DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone. It’s targeted specifically at agricultural users.
“Farmers and producers may not be able to control certain environmental conditions, but drones are an efficient way to mitigate crop health issues and improve yields,” Scott Lumish, Vice President of Business Development at DroneDeploy said in a news release. “The benefits of being able to survey both the 10,000-foot view of fields, as well as zoom in to inches above the plants, are incredibly powerful.”
The platform is intended to be able to detect parasites and fungi in crops, generate variable rate prescriptions for pesticides and asses storm damage in crops.
