Parrot has announced an extension of its strategic partnership with drone swarm light show specialist Dronisos.
Together, the pair hope to explore new applications for drone flight automation, especially making use of the Parrot ANAFI drone platform.
Dronisos has previously featured Parrot Bebop and Mambo drones, modified with specialised lights, hardware and software to act as the stars of their shows.
Parrot’s latest ANAFI drone platform, the company said, offers new opportunities to advance flight automation and synchronisation thanks to its compact size, quiet flights, and security.
Dronisos light shows, meanwhile, have entertained clients such as Lancôme, Peugeot, FIFA, and Oreo.
The pairing first partnered for drone shows in 2016 to show of the Parrot Bebop drone system. Recently they broke a world record together, for the most drones flown simultaneously indoors, with Dronisos utilising 200 Bebops for a drone show in Italy.
“Parrot is a dream partner to help us bring to life spectacular displays of imagination though both their technology and appreciation for artistry,” said Jean-Dominique Lauwereins, CTO and co-founder of Dronisos. “Now, Parrot’s ANAFI drone platform has both inspired and equipped our team to push the boundaries and take our drone swarm capabilities to new heights and new industries.
“In particular, the small size of the ANAFI prevents any physical harm and the highly secure connection ensures the safety and integrity of autonomous flights from potential hackers.”
