Parrot and RIIS partner on AI program for ANAFI drone platform development


Parrot has partnered with RIIS to develop custom applications of artificial intelligence for Parrot’s popular ANAFI drone platform.

Parrot and RIIS say that as a team, they are focused on exploring the use of artificial intelligence and computer vision technology, combined with drone data capture, to solve countless industry challenges using an efficient and cost-effective approach. 

To help demonstrate the promise of this technology and allow developers to start creating innovative apps, Parrot and RIIS have released a technical whitepaper, which provides step-by-step instruction to add AI and computer vision to the ANAFI Drone using Parrot’s open source Ground SDK.

Adding: “At Parrot, we are always looking for innovative solutions for our enterprise partner’s every-day pain points.”

The companies say they are actively exploring use cases which could include municipal use of drones for assessing parking lots, public parks, and streetlights; crowd monitoring; warehouse inventory counting; automated inspection of cell phone towers and solar panels; property surveillance for real estate professionals and developers.

This technology is expected to significantly enhance the often-tedious processes required to complete professional projects across a variety of industries and sectors.

RIIS CEO and founder, Godfrey Nolan, said: “Our recent collaboration with Parrot perfectly illustrates the immense potential of developing apps for Parrot’s ANAFI drone platform.”

Adding: “Leveraging the power of AI and machine learning apps with Parrot drones promises to provide previously impossible solutions to costly and time-consuming challenges.”
