In 2018, IT consultancy and mobile application development experts RIIS showed how, with a little support from Google’s machine learning base, TensorFlow, a DJI drone, could be utilized to count the number of sheep in a field in real-time.
At the time, it was an interesting, albeit niche look into how drones and AI might work together to hold out comparatively mundane tasks.
RIIS has collaborated with Europe’s largest drone company, Parrot, to build similar AI applications utilizing the ANAFI platform.
Together the businesses will explore how artificial intelligence (AI), computer vision technology, and drone records seize can be mixed to solve business challenges.
In order to reveal the potential of the technology and encourage builders to begin creating their innovative applications, Parrot and RIIS have featured a technical whitepaper with step-by-step directions for including AI and computer vision functions to the ANAFI platform utilizing Parrot’s open-source Ground SDK.
RIIS developed a Cattle Counter application, which lets farmers and agriculture professionals quickly and precisely perform a count of cattle herds, to automate the monitoring and counting process. Cattle Counter is at present available for download on Google Play.
“We’re excited to discover the immense capabilities AI and drones will ship to our clients via our ongoing collaboration with RIIS,” stated Jerome Bouvard, Parrot Director of Strategic Partnerships.
