AerHyve analyzes multi-sensor data from UAVs for use in precision agriculture, and PrecisionHawk provides UAV remote sensing and GIS data processing. According to AerHyve, this partnership will provide AerHyve clients with access to PrecisionHawk's hardware and software tools.
By processing aerial data with Machine Learning technology, AerHyve, a division of Frostbyte Interactive, offers agricultural producers information to make more targeted resource-allocation decisions. AerHyve's initial focus was on the wild blueberry industry, Nova Scotia's largest fruit crop; however, the technology can be applied to other types of crop analysis, the company explains.
‘We value AerHyve for their regional presence and expertise in the development of algorithms for UAV data analysis,’ says Christopher Dean, CEO of PrecisionHawk, which operates out of Raleigh, N.C., and Toronto, Ontario. ‘This partnership will allow us to expand and customize our services while equipping AerHyve clients to make more informed business decisions.’
‘The partnership with PrecisionHawk will empower AerHyve with an end-to-end system for incorporating aerial data into an agricultural workflow – from innovative UAV hardware to a library of data-analysis tools,’ adds John Frost, president of AerHyve.
