See What You Can Do With Canon CMOS Sensors

Canon CMOS sensors offer expanded possibilities for integrators and end users developing precision agriculture imaging applications. By combining ultra high resolution with the ability to independently detect in the visible and NIR spectrums, Canon CMOS sensors provide expanded capabilities for precision agriculture imaging systems mounted on drones, airplanes, and satellites. In general, greater resolution allows for larger imaging areas at higher altitudes which can result in increased efficiencies through reduced flight time or covering larger areas in the same amount of time. Additionally, machine vision solutions can be leveraged for an even wider variety of agriculture applications including field robots, phenotyping, grading and sorting, livestock identification, and shipping. With a growing need for sustainable agriculture and ways to increase crop yields, enhanced imaging solutions are in growing demand for agriculture.
