Although drones are already able to do some pretty incredible things, different models tend to specialize in one of some wonderful features, such as shooting 4K-video or avoidance during the flight plunging into various obstacles. Israeli company called Perception intends to allow owners drones bring new functionality to their existing unmanned vehicles through public management application attachable camera, which will be constantly updated.
And although today almost all drones seems to have come with everything that one could cram into them and are capable of everything that you can do with them, Israeli designers are not afraid to challenge the prevailing conditions. In Percepto look at things simply, perceiving the shortest path as the best path to the goal. Releasing its application Computer Vision, complete with running a “black box” weighing 140 grams (about 5 ounces), which houses the chamber Tegra K1 NVIDIA, which shoots video at 640 × 480 at 120 frames per second.
Using the bundled Computer Vision mounts can be attached to the DJI Phantom, Iris + from 3DRobotics or X8 and some other models Walkera. The essence of this project is to ensure that provide functionality drone about the way a smartphone owner. That is, it would require a suite of applications.
These applications can be downloaded from the site Percepto, which, as they say in the company, may one day make the birthplace of applications for drones that do everything from scanning city streets, to calculate the parking lot to find balls after a game of golf. So now the drones will be more functional than hitherto.
