SAN FRANCISCO, CA and SAN DIEGO, CA --(Marketwired - April 04, 2016) - CrowdOptic and SICdrone today announced an agreement to equip a fleet of SICdrone Unmanned Aircraft with the ability to automatically orchestrate their onboard cameras to track and capture multiple camera angles of a single point of interest through the use of CrowdOptic's patented technology.

This solution, which utilizes several CrowdOptic patents (U.S. Patent 8,527,340, U.S. Patent 9,020,832, and U.S. Patent 9,264,474), will analyze location and line-of-sight data of two or more flying unmanned aircraft to automatically aim their onboard cameras onto a single point of interest.

"Today, capturing a single point of interest from multiple drone cameras in real-time is no easy feat. CrowdOptic technology enables us to automatically triangulate an object with cameras, so we can focus on piloting (the drones)," commented Daniel Bosch, CEO of SICdrone.

"Controlling the cameras on drones is just the tip of the iceberg with our partnership with SICdrone. We will also apply our algorithms to the flight navigation systems to assist with the positioning of multiple drones in the sky to capture and track a point of interest," commented CrowdOptic CEO Jon Fisher.

CrowdOptic provides software for smart glasses and other wearable computing devices that allows "wearers" to broadcast live video feeds in real time to any mobile device. This innovative technology is used worldwide by leading enterprises in the medical, sports, entertainment, and security industries. CrowdOptic technology, which includes sensor data smoothing, EXIF data mining and focal analytics, is instantly deployable in a range of mobile applications and technology environments to enhance broadcasting, security, social media sharing, and advertising.

SICdrone is an unmanned aircraft system manufacturer focused on high-speed commercial grade multicopters. SICdrone tiltrotor systems are second to none when comparing speed, maneuverability and stability to existing small drone technology. Market examples of where they intend to focus on include professional videography, agriculture, and infrastructure.
