Software development

The Software Development team is pretty much the brains behind our drones. Their mission is to develop the software installed onboard Parrot drones and remotes. Its role is also to generate the application that controls and configures our drones on smartphones and tablets. The team is involved in the entire range of Drones that Parrot develops.


The onboard software developed by Parrot uses a Linux kernel as a basis; it consists of several specialised bricks, each providing a specific role such as drone flight control, video capture and stabilisation, and autonomous flight, and incorporates very advanced algorithms that our engineers have developed. These advanced bricks also form part of our mobile software developed for iOS and Android.
