Parrot Targets Businesses With New ‘Professional’ Division
Parrot is adapting its range of consumer drones for small and medium business applications.
The new ‘Parrot Professional’ range integrates additional technology and features to make the company’s consumer drones, such as the Disco and the Bebop, suitable for use in agriculture, construction, real estate and other settings.
Sensors have been added to Parrot’s fixed wing Disco drone, along with the inclusion of planning and mapping software, to create the Disco-Pro AG, which can gather data for farmers and agricultural cooperatives.
Meanwhile, two versions of the Bebop quadcopter drone will cater to construction and real estate businesses: the Bebop-Pro Thermal, which adds a thermal imaging camera, and the Bebop-Pro 3D, which is capable of producing 3D models with the included software.
The Disco-Pro AG will retail for US$4,500 and the Bebop-Pro 3D will retail for US$1,100 from June in the US, while release information for the Bebop-Pro Thermal has not been announced. Australian pricing and availability has not been confirmed.
