The eBee can cover up to 12 km2 (4.6 mi2) in a single automated flight, while flights over smaller areas, flown at lower altitudes, can acquire images with a ground sampling distance (GSD) of down to 1.5 cm (0.6 in) per pixel.
The eBee enables flight planning and management through it's eMotion software. The user chooses or creates a preferred background map. Then uses this to define the region they want to map. The desired ground resolution is specified (down to 1.5 cm / 0.6 inches per pixel) and the required image overlap is set. eMotion automatically generates a full flight plan, based on GPS waypoints, calculates the eBee’s required altitude and displays its projected trajectory. eMotion offers a confidence-building simulation mode. This virtual flight simulates wind strength and direction, allowing the user to make any flight plan enhancements needed before launch.
The eBee’s eMotion software displays the aircraft’s key flight parameters, its battery level and its image acquisition progress, in real time, while the artificial intelligence inside the eBee Ag’s autopilot continuously analyses onboard IMU and GPS data to control and optimise every aspect of the drone’s flight.

A Quick Start Guide to Underwater ROVs. In this guide, you’ll learn about what defines a remotely operated vehicle, different types of ROVs, and what they are used for. Underwater ROVs are used to observe and interact underwater across a range of industries.
The origin of Mars’ two moons, Phobos and Deimos, is still unclear. To unravel this mystery, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) Martian Moons eXploration (MMX) mission is scheduled to launch in 2024.
The aim of this article is to provide a high-level answer to the question: “What do people use underwater robotic arms for?” If you’ve worked with Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) before, this article probably isn’t for you. For everyone else, let’s go.
