Taranis updates platform for aerial imagery

Taranis launches its enhanced platform for aerial imagery insights into farming.

The updated and enhanced platform by Taranis merges the benefits from its existing platform with the capabilities of Mavryx’s aerial imagery platform – a company acquired by Taranis in 2018.

Taranis AI2 and UHR

This includes insights from Taranis’ AI2 (sub millimeter imagery samples) and UHR (high resolution full field imagery to recognise problematic zones), combined with other technologies like satellite images and weather forecasts.

Insights provided by the new platform are to help farmers to better manage crops around seed emergence, weeds, insect damage, nutrition deficiency, fertiliser top and side dressing, yield estimation, harvest priority and automated scouting. - Photo: Bert Jansen

Summarised insights in real-time

Taranis’ updated platform aims to supply farmers with clear, summarised insights in real-time, enabling them to make quick decisions, rather than necessitating them to dig through layers of extraneous information.

“There is an enormous demand among farmers, and even leading agriculture retailers, for new technologies that can help streamline and improve the food production process,” says Ofir Schlam, CEO of Taranis.

Better way to monitor fields

“But those technologies can be complex to understand, and even harder to use. We hope that by bringing all of Taranis’ easy-to-use products and offerings under one roof, we can provide farmers with a better way to monitor their fields, allowing them to make informed decisions and act on them quickly,” says Schlam.

Integration with John Deere and Veris

The company’s enhanced platform is streamlined for the hierarchy and work flow of the farming retail chain and should seamlessly integrate with Taranis’ partner companies, such as John Deere and Veris.

Taranis platform

Taranis has developed a platform for aerial imagery insights for agriculture, utilising deep-learning technology combined with high-speed UAVs and manned aircrafts to enable farmers to predict and prevent threats to over 20 million acres of crops on a granular level, such as identifying an actual type of insect on a singular leaf.
