Parrot Sequoia+ Multispectral Sensor Guide

In today's market, every bushel count and flying toys won't cut it.  With the Parrot Sequoia+, the consumer drone is what all you need. With its mini-camera format and light weight, Sequoia multispectral sensor adapts to all drones, both multi-rotor and fixed wing. It has quickly become one of the most sought-after cameras.

Including its unique features, it is the perfect combination of technology, mobility and affordability that allows you to keep track of your crop’s health. With its two sensors, multispectral and sunshine, Parrot Sequoia analyses plants vitality, help you find problems in your field, control irrigation, estimate crop productivity, optimize pesticide input and refine fertilization. 

  • Spectral Brands: Multispectral sensor has four distinct spectral bands – Green, Red, Red-Edge and Near Infrared.
  • Sunshine Sensor: Used for automatic adjustment of readings to ambient light
  • Memory: Has 64 GB internal memory capacity for recording data. Equipped with a 16 MP RGB camera.
  • Large Coverage: Incorporates GPS and IMU for precise positioning and location of images. Geotagging of data and images.
  • Accessibility: Data can be accessed via Wi-Fi and USB port. Slot for optional SD card to add memory and ease data transfer.
  • Compatibility: Compatible with multiple analysis services and it’s adaptability for mounting to a wide range of multi-rotor or fixed wing drones.

Is size everything? 

Sequoia is certainly the smallest and lightest sensor and is a groundbreaking sensor in an amazing little bundle.  

  • Weighs at 107g with its radiance sensor
  • Sequoia itself is less than 2½ inches long; the sunshine sensor is even smaller
  • Highly capable system of cameras and electronics
  • Compatible with almost any size drone
  • Lightweight, adaptable and value-packed multispectral camera
  • Features two types of sensor for the prices of one
  • Captures the light they reflect in four separate parts: GREEN, RED, RED EDGE and NEAR-INFRARED bands
  • Work seamlessly to gather images
  • Measure the light coming off the crops and the fields
  • Assessing for precisely locating where images and readings were take
  • Analyze for a detailed picture of crops’ health
  • Variety of advanced solution software, includes: Pix4D, Airinov and Sensefly.
  • Allows to receive absolute reflectance measurements without to use radiometric calibration targets
  • Consistent evaluation of collecting data and improves the user experience
  • Enable in-depth precision on reflectance measurements
  • Identify plant disease and treat it before it’s too late.

All you need is a consumer drone — and the Parrot Sequoia Multispectral Sensor available from! 

  • 64GB built-in memory for recording data
  • Likely enough for 8-10 flight;  the data and number of flights will record vary by aircraft, speed and altitude
  • Slot for optional SD card to add memory and ease data transfer
  • Allows you to record data from a single flight, then access or upload it quickly.
  • Data recorded on the internal memory can be accessed in three different ways: via USB, via Wi-Fi and via an SD card.

Let’s start from calibrating our Parrot Sequoia! First, make sure the sensors are properly attached and connected. Then, we can start the calibration. 

The multispectral sensor must be perpendicular to the sunshine sensor.  It is best to calibrate them both at the same time.

Note:  If calibrating separately, the sunshine sensor must be connected to the multispectral sensor.  

Step 1:  Check that the Sequoia indicator light flashes purple.  

Step 2:  Make sure to rotate the drone on the Z-axis (yaw axis) until the green indicator light flashes on the sensor

Step 3:  Rotate the drone on the Y-axis (pitch axis) until the blue indicator light flashes on the sensor.

Step 4:  Rotate the drone on the x-axis (roll axis)until the indicator changes color.

Note:  Once it’s completely finished, the sensor light will vary depending on the status. For instance, if the memory is full, the light indicator will flash yellow.
