Parrot again pushes the drone eco-system giving developers a major update of Ground SDK, supporting the entire ANAFI platform

Ground SDK 1.7.0

Today, Parrot is delighted to release its major update for the ANAFI Ground SDK.

Through our open-source SDK, we are building a growing ecosystem of professional applications and services, to make the ANAFI range a reference platform for professional use.


The SDK 1.7.0 is now compatible with the entire ANAFI platform, including the newly released ANAFI USA, designed for first responders end enterprise professionals.


Thanks to all the feedback from our expanding developer’s community, we are also adding the native support for thermal imaging, on ANAFI Thermal and ANAFI USA.


Developers can update their current application or start creating a new app today, following our step-by-step tutorials, and quickly build a prototype with the Ground SDK Demo application.


Ground SDK 1.7.0 comes with a lot of features:

– Native iOS and Android libraries to create applications in minutes

– Video renderer and decoder, running on multiple platforms

– Python framework

– Simulation environment

– 3D model for all drones (including ANAFI USA)


All these resources are live and accessible online, completely free and open source.
