Parrot Sequoia+ is the first multispectral camera to provide absolute reflectance measurements without reflectance targets.

Thanks to Pix4D’s radiometric processing pipeline, Parrot Sequoia+ allows for a more consistent evaluation of collected data and improves the user experience by removing the need for a reflectance target.

The full radiometric calibration is automatic when processing the data using Pix4D software (Pix4Dfields and Pix4Dmapper).
 

Sequoia: the multi-band sensor designed for agriculture 

The Sequoia multispectral sensor captures both visible and invisible images, providing calibrated data to optimally monitor the health and vigor of your crops. Sequoia captures calibrated wavelength, Green, Red, Red-Edge and Near Infrared to highlight the health of plants.

Featuring excellent precision flexible integration, and small size and weight, the Sequoia sensor is designed to fit many types of drones, fixed wing and multi-rotor drones with or without gimbals.

Please be aware that we have had reports of overheating when using in ambient temps above 30 Degrees Celsius.

Weighing only 107 grams, Sequoia is a powerful sensor in a remarkably small package. This camera features four narrowband filters optimized for analyzing crop health and a 16 MP RGB imager for easy digital scouting. Sequoia's irradiance sensor and integrated GPS make it an accurate and calibrated tool for precision agriculture.

Get the most of data captured with Sequoia using ATLAS, MicaSense's cloud-based data processing and analytics platform.

Key Features of Sequoia:

- Multispectral camera for agriculture
- Self-calibrated using the Sunshine sensor
- RGB camera 16 Mpx for scouting
- High photo rate (1 picture per second)
- Independent from the drone
- Standard protocol (PTP) for communication with drones
- USB powered

Benefits of using multispectral imagery:

- Identify problem areas in a field that need attention and further scouting.
- Refine fertilization by detecting nutrient deficiencies symptoms.
- Optimize pesticide input through early detection of biotic stress.
- Control crop irrigation by identifying areas where water stress is suspected.
- Estimate crop yield by processing and exploiting agronomic indices.

 

Adaptable to small drones

With its compact size and weight, Sequoia is a great fit for many multi-rotors and small fixed-wing platforms.

The most accurate multispectral imagery
A synchronous, global shutter drone sensor with four bands and an RGB camera for the ultimate in multispectral accuracy. A fully-integrated sunshine sensor captures and logs the current lighting conditions and automatically calibrates outputs of the camera so measurements are absolute.

Sequoia NDVI Camera considerations

30 October 2017
The cable connectors on the Sequoia camera are very delicate but the supplied cables are very stiff due to the braided metal shielding. Through constantly attaching and removing the camera and sun sensor from a UAV, the connectors on the camera and sensor can develop connection problems. This could be alleviated by either more robust connectors or more flexible cables. Also, there is a problem making a wifi connection to the Sequoia camera when the controller of the P4 Pro is turned on. Turning the camera on or making changes to the setting needs to be dune before the P4 Pro controller is turned on.
