农药喷洒无人机公司 Pyka 完成 1100 万美元种子轮融资

By drone, funding, Startups, techcrunch

 现代农业的田块大到令人难以置信,有效进行喷洒是一个严峻的运营挑战。目前的喷洒作业大部分还是由人力承担,而 Pyka 正通过翼式无人飞行器接管这些工作,至关重要的是,他们获得了监管部门的批准。
就像我们在 DroneSeed 那里看到的一样,这种类型的飞行对飞行员来说是非常危险的,因为他们必须贴近地面和其他障碍物进行低空飞行;然而,它同时也非常容易实现自动化,因为当中涉及到很多重复的飞行模式,而且必须一遍又一遍地完美执行。
Pyka 采用了在无人机行业并不主流的方法,主流的方法一般是采用多旋翼飞行器来实现机动性和轻松的起降,但多旋翼无人机无法承载大量的农药和其他化学品,而不幸的是,这些农药和化学品往往是需要进行大规模喷洒的。

Pyak 制造的飞行器更加传统,它的外观很像是传统的单座农药喷洒飞机,只不过没有设置驾驶舱。飞行器由 3 个螺旋桨驱动,其大部分内部空间让位给了有效载荷(可携带大约 450 磅的有效载荷,约合 2… Read More
