Parrot Launches ‘follow me’ In-App Feature For Bebop 2 Drone

Parrot Bebop 2 pilots will benefit from an enhanced experience thanks to new tracking features. Today, Parrot launches an accurate and reliable“follow me” in-app feature with an industry-first application of visual tracking, in conjunction with the piloting smartphone’s GPS and barometer. Running, climbing, extreme sports or cycling with family or friends, Parrot Bebop 2 follows you everywhere and keeps you in the center of the action.  

Key features include:

  • The ‘follow me’ feature combines three parameters: visual tracking, smartphone’s GPS and, if available, its barometer.
  • Advanced visual tracking algorithms, designed to act like the human eye, isolate colours and shape differences of the subject against its environment, to get a more accurate framing
  • The smartphone’s GPS determines the position with a precision of up to 15 feet
  • The barometer of the smartphone optimizes the vertical tracking of the subject
  • ‘Follow me’ GPS and visual tracking feature has two modes of operation:
    • Auto Follow: you are the main subject
    • Auto Framing: you are the film director

The ‘follow me’ feature with GPS and visual tracking by Parrot is available starting today for iOS within the FreeFlight Pro application as an in-app purchase: $27.99 Canadian.
