Vertical is a Waterloo-based startup developing vision-based intelligence technology for the commercial drone industry. The core product is a combination of sensors and computing that enables a drone to perceive its environment and function autonomously.
The product is a computer vision-based object-tracking hardware module that will interface with existing motorized gimbals and drones. This will enable the filmmaker to track high speed dynamic subjects that would be impossible for a human operator. Film in places you can't reach or aim - in the air with a drone, or tight spaces on the ground.
