New tech boosts AirSeed mission to plant 100M trees with drones
Australian drone startup AirSeed Technologies, which has embarked on a groundbreaking climate change initiative to plant 100 million trees by 2024, has found a new partner to improve its seed pod delivery system.
British engineering and smart tech firm CAL International says it was approached by AirSeed cofounder Andrew Walker to assist in refining the planting systems for their drone technology. The mission brief was to take AirSeed’s existing delivery system and refine the design of the user interface and manufacturability of the seed pod delivery system.
The AirSeed drone, which uses artificial and data intelligence, is a payload and delivery system that identifies and locates designated target areas with GPS coordinates and then fires carbon pods onto the ground at the rate of two per second. These carbon pods are then pinpointed on the mapping system in line with the flight trajectory, which also considers wind variables and conditions on the day of…
