eBee senseFly is a fully autonomous drone to capture high-resolution aerial photos that you can transform into accurate 2D orthomosaics & 3D models.
The eBee is the easiest to use mini drone on the market. To launch, just throw it into the air! It then flies, captures images and lands itself. (However you can reprogram its flight or land the drone manually if required.).
senseFly’s intuitive eMotion software makes it easy to plan and simulate your mapping mission. Import your preferred base map and define the area you want to cover. Then specify your required ground resolution, with a GSD of down to 1.5 cm, and image overlap. eMotion automatically generates a full flight plan, calculating the eBee’s required altitude and displaying its projected trajectory.
The artificial intelligence inside the eBee’s autopilot continuously analyses data provided by the Inertial Measurement Unit and onboard GPS to control every aspect of its flight. Using eMotion ground station software you can view the eBee’s flight parameters, batter y level and image acquisition progress in real time.
Use Pix4D software to easily process your flight’s photos. In just a few clicks you can transform this imager y into geo- referenced 2D orthomosaics, 3D point clouds, triangle models and Digital Elevation Models (DEMs). With the eBee’s GSD of down to 1.5 cm, relative orthomosaic/3D model accuracy of 1-3x GSD, and absolute horizontal/vertical accuracy of down to 3/5 cm, you can have full confidence in the accuracy of the outputs you produce.
The eBee is supplied, as standard, with a 18.2 MB RGB camera. However two additional cameras are also available (always usable one at a time), plus a handy radio tracker for missions undertaken in the most challenging environments.
