Dronesurvey Asia is an Official Reseller for Parrot Drones in Hong Kong and Macau. Parrot is known for its consumer drones (its currently number 2 in the world), but the company also has a portfolio of outstanding technologies and solutions in the commercial drone space, covering equipment, software and services.
The ANAFI Ai
The ANAFI Ai is the first drone to use 4G as the main data link between the drone and pilot. Transmission limitations are significantly reduced thanks to ANAFI Ai’s 4G connectivity, which enables precise control at almost any distance. For Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS)* flights, The Ai stays connected even behind obstacles. For the first time, ANAFI Ai embeds a Secure Element in the drone and in its Skycontroller 4. The Secure Element protects both the integrity of the software and the privacy of your data.
ANAFI Ai takes advantage of 4G to profoundly change the use cases for drones. With 4G, the data link between the drone and the pilot becomes robust in all circumstances. Already widely and reliably deployed around the world, 4G offers long range transmission at low frequency bands at 700MHz – 900MHz. Additionally, the 4G connection means professionals can operate the drone at any distance.
Open Source API
Parrot is the first in the industry to make its piloting application open-source. Parrot offers developers a SDK that can be used to execute custom code in the ANAFI AI drone during flight. ANAFI Ai’s uniquely designed obstacle-avoidance (OA) system detects obstacles in all directions, using stereo cameras to sense objects and automatically avoid them. The 48MP main camera boasts a fully-stabilised 4K 60fps / HDR10 camera to capture finely-detailed aerial images and smooth video footage.
Embedded Artificial Intelligence allows for photogrammetry-specific flight plans to be performed automatically, optimising productivity, and saving you time. You can generate optimised missions based on the land registry of the building selected in just one click. ANAFI Ai’s Quad Bayer 48 MP sensor delivers survey-grade accurate 2D and 3D models. It offers the same precision as drones with a 1″ 20MP sensor, while being able to fly 1.8 times higher. A GSD of 0.46 cm/px is obtained at an altitude of 30 m. Pictures can be captured at 1fps, 2x faster than any other drone in the market. ANAFI Ai images are compatible with all photogrammetry software suites.
With Pix4D, the market leader in photogrammetry software, Parrot has pushed the integration one step further. During the flight, ANAFI Ai can send picture data to Pix4Dcloud directly. Computation starts when the drone lands, saving you time by avoiding time-consuming manual data transfer.
Advanced artificial intelligence, autonomous flight, best-in-class imaging, photogrammetry accuracy and reliable 4G connectivity, put powerful new tools in the hands of professionals like never before.
ANAFI Ai embeds a WISeKey Secure Element which is NIST FIPS140-2 Level 3 compliant and Common Criteria EAL5+ certified. This Secure Element protects both the integrity of the flight and control software, and the privacy of your data transferred. You have full control over your data. No data is shared by default without your express consent.
