Draganfly, a Canadian drone manufacturer, has for decades built flying robots for a wide variety of applications. Recently, the company received its largest order yet, and for a new use case, a companion drone.
The firm is partnering with Pittsburgh-based Digital Dream Labs to create the next in a product line of companion robots that already includes the Cozmo and Vector surface robots.
According to Draganfly co-founder and CEO Cameron Chell, the initial $9 million order calls for an initial delivery of 10,000 drones starting in 2022, with 50,000 units over the life of the initial agreement. That will make this model, codenamed Project Breezemo, the most common Draganfly product in existence.
