BOSTON, Mass. — American Robotics, an industrial drone developer specializing in agricultural automation, unveiled its flagship product Scout. It is a self-charging, self-managing drone system capable of autonomously carrying out daily scouting missions.
Scout delivers this automation in a turn-key package consisting of an autonomous drone with visual and multispectral cameras and a weatherproof drone station which handles housing, charging, data processing and data transfer. Once installed within a farmer's field, it requires no manual intervention to plan, fly and manage the drone operations.
Health reports and analysis are seamlessly sent to the farmer. The system has already been deployed in a range of agricultural locations across the United States this summer.
American Robotics is headquartered in MassRobotics in Boston, an emerging hub for robotics startups.
