Embarcadero Technologies, a provider of software solutions for application and database development, is featuring the Parrot AR.Drone in this week's ‘Developing the Internet of Things (IoT) Showcase.’
Parrot's AR.Drone joins other technology to have been featured in Embarcadero's showcase, such as the Moto 360 Smartwatch, Zephyr HxM Heart Rate Monitor and Google Glass.
The AR.Drone is also among the new category of connected gadgets for the IoT marketplace. Using Embarcadero’s Appmethod software development platform, developers can create connected apps to pilot the radio-controlled flying quadricopter.
A developer using Appmethod to build or extend apps for the AR.Drone can deploy the piloting application to mobile devices or desktop platforms, including Android, iOS, Windows and OS X, via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi app tethering, without having to make any source-code changes.
