Prototyped under a contract with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Vy’s patented technology finds order in real-world imagery and represents this discovered order in a searchable relational database. Vy’s software starts by finding mathematical models of Bézier curves and straight lines, then uses complex object models to identify areas and objects of interest.
Vy’s approach allows us to fuse data from any sensor that can be presented as an electronic signal. Fusing data from multiple sources always results in better decisions than relying upon data from a single source.
Vy’s software is backed by a strong base of intellectual property. The company has secured eight broad patents on its core technology, with two pending and more to come. Because Vy’s approach is based upon replicating the mammalian visual cortex in software, we believe our intellectual property is the best, and perhaps only, way to achieve reliability comparable to or exceeding human performance in real world environments.
