Avoid the headache

Birds are hungry and Persistent. Every year millions of dollars of damage is done by birds and even more is spent trying to stop them. Birds will quickly acclimate to static deterrents, so protecting your crop requires a comprehensive plan.

Deployment Procedure -3 Options

Survey

For a completely hands off deployment, one of our team can visit your site to survey blocks and thoroughfares. This approach is great if you want piece of mind, and a accurate map for deploying our crop monitoring and reporting system.

Guided

Avvy is designed to be easy to deploy. In fact it can be completed using just our App and your new Avvy. Using the app instruct Avvy follow you using its camera. Place Avvy into survey mode and lead Avvy around your block. This will teach Avvy your boundaries and thoroughfares. Once this is complete, lead Avvy into into the block and it will map the rows autonomously. It’s that simple.

Updating the map

If you want to change the route between blocks, add a shortcut, or modify an exclusion or low noise zone. These changes can be made through the Map Editing Wizard built right into the Autonabit Dashboard.
