Flight planning software for eBee drones. This easy-to-use desktop ground station allows you to intuitively plan your missions, interact with your drones during the flight and prepare the data for post-processing.
Beginner-friendly yet packed with advanced features to tackle the toughest jobs, eMotion simplifies every step of your mapping project, helping to get your eBee in the air quickly, so you can focus on what’s important – analyzing geospatial data.
Draw the area you want to map and eMotion creates the flight plan.
Adjust the mission parameters or select the optimized preset settings for the project type, the camera used, and the terrain.
Horizontal, corridor, point of interest (POI), multiple and custom.
Agriculture, utilities, environmental, surveying, mining, humanitarian, governmental, disaster management, coastal and more.
Background container color: Need to be able to change to any color
CTA capability: CTA button is optional… Admin needs to be able to add or remove
Flying experience recreation with included RTK/PPK. Possibility to modify parameters to see their effect on the drones.
Just a few minutes are needed to prepare a simple mission, with the possibility to choose optimized presets or custom settings – GSD, overlap, etc.
Drone battery level, home distance, link quality, flight time, altitude, wind, ground and air speed, and more.
Images are automatically geotagged during flight to provide you with a time-saving advantage in post-processing.
eMotion safety features contribute to the regulation advantages that our drones provide to eBee operators, such as BVLOS and Operations Over People approvals.
Modify a flight plan or send commands anytime during a planned mission.
Import geo-awareness maps to have all the restricted and no-fly zones on your flight map.
Audio and color-coded notifications – advisory, caution and critical – before and during flight.
When detecting strong wind, low light, lens cap on, GNSS accuracy degradation and more, the drone will automatically return to home for landing.
During flight and with just a few clicks, modify the path, the landing spot, hold drone in position, resume mission, perform an emergency landing and more.
Since 2010, eMotion flight planning software has evolved to enhance your workflow and support the most demanding projects.
Software releases since 2018
Spatial coordinate system
Activate the mode you prefer to navigate the map and visualize the terrain more accurately.
The elevation color map also helps you check site elevation and plan your flightlines accordingly.
Use included eMotion maps, import KML files or create your own.
Custom maps are ideal for recurrent mapping projects and for monitoring changes over a period of time.
eMotion enables by default terrain following, but you can also import your own elevation data easily.
The software allows exporting your KML trajectory to check in Google Earth Pro.
eMotion connects wirelessly to your drone, to industry cloud solutions, to survey-grade base stations, airspace data, and even includes live weather updates.
Are you planning a flight, but you won’t have Internet connectivity in the field? Simply download map data for offline use in advance/at the office and use it on-location without the Internet.
If the connection between eMotion and the drone is momentarily lost, the eBee continues the mission, taking photos as planned, and lands. When the radio link is lost for more than 5 minutes, the drone returns home and lands.
eMotion automatically handles the georeferencing and preparation of images required for post-processing software. This vastly reduces third-party software compatibility issues.
With fleet management software, base stations, and photogrammetry post-processing software:
Measure Ground Control, DroneLogbook, PIX4Dmapper, PIX4Dmatic, PIX4Dcloud, PIX4Dreact, PIX4Dfields, PIX4Dsurvey, Agisoft Metashape, DroneDeploy, Bentley ContextCapture, SimActive, Esri ArcGIS Drone2Map and Trimble Business Center.
RTK / PPK accuracy come integrated for capable drones, like the eBee X, eBee TAC, eBee Geo and eBee Ag.
eMotion flight simulator includes RTK / PPK post-processing accuracy simulation.
Available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Czech, Polish and more, to enhance the experience of our worldwide users.
eMotion options allow you to select the coordinates format within Decimal Degrees (DD) and Degrees/Minutes/Seconds (DMS).
The software options allow you to select the unit system, between metric (meters and hectares) and imperial (feet and acres).
Fly up to 4 drones simultaneously with eMotion and increase your operations’ ROI. All images are geotagged, even from different eBee X series drones.
Benefits of multi-flight missions: less field time, faster data collection, fewer disruptions, less downtime, and improved operational efficiency and ROI.
During the flight, the drone camera is autonomously triggered.
Feel free to adjust some of the camera settings within eMotion, like the picture format, white balance, exposure bias, time target or ISO, which are important for image calibration.
Easily measure your area’s total length, the lowest and highest altitude of the terrain (using the elevation data) and the total positive and negative elevation change.
eMotion is regularly updated based on customer feedback and the different industries’ needs. The newest version of the software is available to download for free for all eBee X series users.
Check valuable info in your drone’s flight logs, such as date and flight time, drone serial number, flight duration, distance, max ATO, payload, photos and more.
Create a mission based on another, save missions for recurring mapping, add past missions to your favorites, and check your recently planned missions.
“A drone’s flight management software defines your experience—if this is complicated or confusing, operations can quickly become a chore. eMotion is different: it’s advanced, scalable drone software that anyone can use.”
CEO, Green Aero Tech
“It’s important that UAS products are autonomous and in the case of the eBee this is very true; I found its take-off and landing particularly well thought out. The safety measures embedded in its eMotion software are also smart.”
Senior Scientific Officer, Joint Research Centre - European Commission, Netherlands
