The Percepto Computer Vision is a new feature, offered by Israeli company Percepto, that aims to allow drone owners to add functionality to their existing drones via an open-source attachable camera, which itself is controlled by a variety of drone apps.

The Computer Vision attachment is a black box that weighs around 140 grams and houses a processing unit based on NVIDIA's Tegra K1 and a camera capable of shooting 640 x 480 video at 120 frames per second.

While existing drones are capable of doing amazing things such as shooting video, capturing underwater photos or avoiding obstacles, most drones have specialize at one thing in particular. The Percepto Computer Vision feature makes it possible for drone owners to own a truly versatile device that excels at a number of things, not just one.
