Hi Kai Chuen Tan,

We do not support the Parrot Jumping Sumo currently.
Feel free to reach out to us at with more information on your use case.
This will help us in our investigation to support the drone in a future MATLAB release.


Will it work with Jumping Sumo?


[Update]: Now access the First Person View (FPV) camera of the Parrot drone to capture images and view live video stream
