WHO ARE WE?

Aerobotics is a South African Ag-tech company with a smart scouting platform to identify pests and diseases in tree crops. Aerobotics’ platform combines weekly satellite data, automated drone scouting, and infield scouting data to identify and track every tree on the farm. Aerobotics then uses machine learning to automatically detect pest and disease problems, and finally alerts the farmer to those locations to ground-truth the data and diagnose the specific problems. By bringing farmer validation into the loop, Aerobotics gets smarter all the time, which benefits all the farmers on the platform. The company’s web-based software platform is called Aeroview.
