Drones + Computer Vision = Smarter Drones
At PercepTonic, our startup out of Plano, we develop Computer Vision solutions that help drones (and other things) “see.” Our embedded vision algorithms give drones the situational awareness they need for real-time decision-making. By increasing drone autonomy and safety beyond visual line of sight, we are enabling the next wave of commercial drone applications.
We’ll have videos and a live demo of our prototype, GerbilBall, that uses consumer-grade cameras and onboard processors to alert the operator when it senses objects in the vicinity. We’ll talk about what’s possible when you put CV on a drone and look forward to hearing your ideas and feedback
