When one thinks of drones, they usually think of a small, flying, camera drone that takes photos at parks. While the drone revolution is booming in casual crowds, these machines also have a good grasp on more professional work. Yes, while recreational drones are great at vacations and sightseeing, their bigger, more specialized cousins have other work in mind. These drones help monitor neighborhoods or buildings, help the police in investigations, and some even help make farm work easier.
DJI T16 Agricultural Drone
China is the home of one of the most prominent brands in the drone world today: DJI. With their headquarters located in Shenzhen, China, they are always looking to branch out and improve their work. Their newest creation aims to help the farmlands create a more time-effective workload in general.
DJI’s newest creation is the T16 Agricultural Drone, which they hope to make farming more efficient. The drone is a massive construct that can carry over 4 gallons of liquid. The drone can use this to either water the fields, or coat it with pesticides for protection. The T16’s main advantage over manual labor is that it can fly. The speed it can reach different locations on the field cannot be matched by a farmer on foot. This means a faster coverage, while also ensuring an even distribution of the aid. While in the air, it can also dodge any obstacles like taller plants or even trees. This makes it an excellent tool to use for larger areas with more diverse plant life. It can also navigate easily through bad weather conditions. This can be a difficult task for famers, especially when fog or heavy rain makes it difficult to traverse the terrain. Visibility is also an issue in these weather conditions. This creates an even slower work in the field.
