Currently, wired gables have been installed or portable storage devices have been installed for data acquisition of flying drone. In this paper, we propose a technology to transmit data wirelessly by sensing information such as battery discharge value, acceleration, and temperature by attaching RF sensor to a drone. The purpose of this paper is to design and develop the monitoring technology of agriculture drone battery usage in real time using RF sensor. In this paper, we propose a monitoring system that can check real time data of battery changed value, temperature, and acceleration during pesticide control activity of agricultural drone.
