Applied Drone Innovations

Horticultural innovation is in ADI’s DNA, we are developing tomorrow’s greenhouse monitoring systems. These state-of-the-art autonomous robotic platforms increase the effectiveness and efficiency of greenhouses here in the Netherlands and worldwide.

Imagine a football field, now imagine that you have to check the health of each blade of grass. This is the challenge facing growers in the ever expanding horticultural market. Greenhouses are getting larger, employees are hard to find and train. ADI provides new tools to growers to tackle these issues.

ADI is developing tailor-made hardware and software solutions to provide growers with an unprecedented insight into their operation. With extensive experience in the horticulture sector, our multidisciplinary team puts ADI in a unique position to add value to growers.
