Flying Eye Relies on Digi XBee for Drone Connectivity and Parachute Deployment

Flying Eye drones are designed to spray crops, capture breathtaking photos and videos of remote locations, and extend the reach and agility of customers around the world. They are built with backup parachutes that can be remotely activated in the event of drone failure or flight disruption. The drone operator’s connection to the drone has two separate RF links – one devoted solely to emergency parachute deployment. Flying Eye uses Digi XBee® RF modules to control two separate radio links. XBee modules provide best-in-class wireless connectivity to devices, taking advantage of the XBee® 802.15.4 for point-to-point connectivity, with line-of-sight ranges of up to two miles and data rates of up to 111 Kbps.
