Several Belgian players are involved in the development of a hyper spectral camera that allows drones to capture images with extremely high resolution. The camera is already used on satellites, but with precision agriculture, a whole new field of application is revealed.
The Dutch green energy producer Eneco will check all its solar parks in Belgium with a heat camera equipped drone. This enables them to detect solar panels with a malfunction easier and cheaper. A manual check has become too time consuming.
DroneMatrix, a Belgian company, succeeded in obtaining a European homologation for one of its systems, the TYTHUS. This certificate, which can be compared to the certificate of conformity of a car, proves that the drone can safely be used in class 1A, where the risks are deemed to be the highest.
