The role of the hardware development teams is to design drone electronics, radio frequency connectivity systems and propulsion systems.
The electronic design engineers are involved throughout the product life cycle, from the feasibility models to the prototype and roll-out. They create the design with the choice of technologies and corresponding components then develop the circuit boards.
The radio frequency team identifies the connectivity technologies and designs the electronics and antennae as well as the low-level software layers.
The propulsion system team defines and designs the motors and the propellers. It also develops the corresponding motor control software.
These multi-disciplinary teams work in close collaboration with the different Parrot business lines and therefore have a comprehensive overview of the product. They use state-of-the-art technologies in all fields in order to design varied products ranging from minidrones to drones for professional use.
