What is Parrot Sphinx#
Parrot Sphinx is a state-of-the-art drone simulation tool. Parrot engineers use it to develop and test all the current and upcoming features of Parrot drone platforms.
The main concept is to execute the drone firmware, with all its sensors and actuators, in a visually and physically realistic environment, isolated from the computer host system.
Parrot Sphinx allows you to:
Visualize and record flight data at run-time
Configure drone sensors and surrounding physics elements at run-time
Simulate all sensors, including cameras
Generate depth maps and segmentation images
Use many realistic 3D scenes
Connect to different kind of remote controllers such as Parrot-Freeflight app via Wi-Fi
Use scripts to control the simulation entirely
Add pedestrians and vehicles
Control the real time factor
Parrot Sphinx is built on cutting-edge industry standard components:
