Drone Harmony extends Parrot ANAFI Ai open platform capability with its flight planner for complex missions



The solution allows complex topography and vertical structure mapping missions with the pro-grade micro-drone designed for photogrammetry.

Paris and Zurich: October 14th 2022. Parrot, the leading European drone group, is very pleased to announce that the Parrot ANAFI Ai is now compatible with Drone Harmony.

This partnership combines Parrot's top-of-the-line 4G connected professional drones with Drone Harmony's Software to provide inspection and mapping professionals with automated data acquisition capabilities on the most challenging scenarios. The duo guarantees high quality and safe reproducible data collection.

Parrot ANAFI Ai's 48 MP images captured at 1 frame per second provide the best photogrammetry solution of its category: mapping quicker for the same data quality / mapping larger surface for the same mission duration.

Leveraging Parrot ANAFI Ai's outstanding photogrammetry characteristics, Drone Harmony's Application allows inspection professionals to eliminate errors by optimizing the drone position to capture the most accurate data. The flight planner considers the ground level for large scale topography mission. Drone Harmony also allows flight planning for building facades mapping and inspection of industrial infrastructure. Coupled with the ANAFI Ai's 4G connectivity, the solution is particularly acute for mapping in interferences-ridden urban area where Wi-Fi might be very challenging.

The data captured with the Parrot ANAFI Ai and Drone Harmony Application can then be used by professionals to rapidly survey and / or generate precise 2D and 3D maps of buildings, telecommunications assets, power lines, industrial sites, bridges, railways, mines, mountains road, quarries, forests, cliffs...

The compatibility with the Drone Harmony Application is made possible by the Parrot openness strategy. Parrot actively promotes open source for development. Developers can freely use Parrot SDK to develop their own applications and embed their own code on the drone. Parrot ANAFI Ai is compatible with the open-source standard protocol MAVLink v1, exquisitely used by Drone Harmony to share their flight plans.

Once a flight plan is created by the flight planner, it can be shared through Parrot FreeFlight 7, the App designed to control Parrot ANAFI Ai. The flight plan then appears on the usual App interface. It can be run as any other FreeFlight flight plan mission.

Last but not least, this compatibility offers users privacy by design. Parrot does not monitor professionals and their business. Parrot ANAFI Ai natively takes off anywhere. Parrot and Drone Harmony are GDPR compliant. Flight logs and all sensitive data collected by Parrot ANAFI Ai can be stored locally, on Parrot's GDPR compliant servers based in Europe and its users can choose not to share their information.
