European drone producer Parrot has launched its ANAFI Ai, the first drone to use 4G as the main data link between the drone and the operator, a game changer for the drone industry. Users will no longer experience transmission limitations thanks to ANAFI Ai’s 4G connectivity, which enables precise control at any distance. For Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) flights, it stays connected even behind obstacles.
