Farmers in Quebec are getting interested in drones

Drone Project VAS
Drone Project path to market

We are building a Drone lab!

A project in collaboration with 
  • APRUS design and fabrication of drones
  • GRE3EN carbon fiber 3D printing
  • JAM facilitates access to the local (and sustainable) food system network

SENSORICA's role in this network is to integrate sensing technology into drones for applications in photography and videography, mapping and precision agriculture.

Funding the Drone project - open doc


  • photography and videography
  • aerial imaging and spectroscopy
  • environmental monitoring
  • add more...   

Short-term goals
