Vertical has designed a product that is a computer vision-based object-tracking hardware module that will interface with existing motorized gimbals and drones. This enables filmmakers to track high-speed dynamic subjects that would be impossible for a human operator. Using Vertical, you can film in places you can't reach or aim – in the air with a drone, or in tight spaces on the ground.
