In recent years, along with the development of precision agriculture, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in crop data collection is becoming more popular because of the advantages of collecting data in a large area. However, many crops and special growing conditions require low-flying UAVs to collect data such as orchards. This challenge with the safety control algorithm of the UAVs. The research aims to develop UAVs capable of autopilot and sampling at low altitudes. The safety control problem of UAV is solved by the Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO) algorithm using a stereo camera synchronized with an inertial measurement unit (IMU). Besides that, the UAV is equipped with a high-resolution RBG camera for data sampling. The system has been tested under various conditions of low-ceiling performance with altitude hold and obstacle avoidance requirements, and the collected data is satisfactory for use.
