quote These days, plenty of drones can take good quality photos and video, and operators can use image processing (‘stitching’) programs like Pix4D and Drone Deploy to make 3d models of assets (buildings, bridges etc) and natural environments (a section of sea cliff for example). As of July 2021, Parrot has innovated some significant new improvements to this workflow. The big advantages of the new Anafi AI are that it can fly further, and fly uninterrupted in built-up urban areas (without losing signal) because it uses the 4G network to connect the drone and controller. It can also produce precise 3D maps and models faster and more easily, and has an open source SDK giving you access to all flight sensors, including obstacle avoidance sensors, the occupancy grid and internet access. What does all this mean? Imagine you want to inspect some remotely located towers. The Anafi AI will fly long distances to each one without signal drop outs, will take high res images of them and start building your 3D models instantaneously (before the drone even lands). And, conduct the mission in a highly customisable and safe way, due to its open-source app, and obstacle avoidance ‘perception system’. Essentially, Parrot has innovated a better way for organisations to carry out drone based asset condition reports and environmental maps. quote

Update 12/10/21: We are very keen to see the Anafi AI and begin testing it.  The latest update from Parrot is that we expect to have pricing on the Anafi AI announced on Oct 29, and that Parrot will ship their first carton to us in Sydney in the week starting Nov 22.

__


Faster and easier precise 3D modeling

With the Anafi AI, Images are pushed into the cloud and the 3d model starts building before the drone even lands. The Parrot group owns Pix4D, this vertical integration has enabled Parrot to create a faster and more seamless mapping/modelling workflow – going from individual images to processing precise 3d models/maps, to sharing them with others online. In addition, modelling individual buildings can now be done with one tap.


4G connection – fly further and around obstacles without signal drop outs


The drone is the first to use the mobile phone network (4G LTE), to make a super strong signal connection between the drone and the controller (22.5 km range). This means long-range autonomous flights, and it can stay connected even behind obstacles – buildings, trees etc. The link is fully encrypted so you can securely upload photos and videos in the air, using a WISeKey Secure Element to protect your information. The drone switches to 4G automatically when the Wi-Fi connection gets too weak.


Unique gimbal-mounted obstacle-avoidance ‘perception system’


To help the Anafi Ai keep from crashing while flying out of sight, Parrot developed a unique obstacle-avoidance system. The main 48-megapixel camera is positioned between a pair of identical omnidirectional stereo camera ‘eyes’ that form a perception system. Parrot uses just these eyes to detect obstacles to help the drone map its way around them. Other drones with obstacle-avoidance systems use cameras in front and on the sides and bottom, which drives up cost, weight and processing demands.


Open-source SDK


Parrot has a large network of software partners, too. Its piloting application is open-source and Parrot's SDK gives access to all flight sensors, including obstacle avoidance sensors, occupancy grid and internet access.


Basic flying specs


32 min flight time

22.5 km range

Rain resistant

Can fly indoors (using optical flow and key point detection)


Camera specs


48MP stills camera (shots: single, bracketing, burst, panorama, time lapse, GPS time lapse). It has a half-inch sensor, and Parrot claims it actually outperforms one-inch sensors in other typical 20MP camera drones on the market such as the Mavic 2 Pro for example.


4K 60 FPS video, or 4K 60 FPS video with HDR 10 (HDR 10 is more than double the brightness and contrast of HDR 8).


6x digital zoom (see 1cm detail when the drone is 75m away).


The main camera can be aimed straight up or down on its three-axis motorized gimbal. The camera also uses three-axis electronic stabilization so its 48-megapixel sensor can create sharp, survey-grade 2D and 3D models, Parrot says. Images are compatible with all photogrammetry software suites, including Parrot subsidiary Pix4D.


Creating maps/models (photogrammetry)


Parrot have now integrated the functions of Pix4D capture into the Anafi AI flying app – FreeFlight 7. Instead of using RTK/PPK or ground control points, Parrot achieves accuracy by using AI ad 4G. It uses an IMU, GNSS and ToF sensors , and ArcGIS for the map background.


All in all, it is capable of half-centimeter (.046cm/px) GSD when flying at 30m elevation.

The Anafi AI was only announced on Jul 1 2021. We expect details on pricing to be available at the end of September, and availability to be in mid to late October 2021.
