, a GENIUS NY Cohort 6 team, is a winner at the annual “Pitch the Press” event at the Commercial UAV Expo in Las Vegas, NV.
The WonderLand System from Wonder Robotics touts “Vertical Awareness” to improve the safe landing of autonomous vehicles. WonderLand’s sensors and algorithms increase understanding of weather conditions, ground conditions, lighting, and other factors that can impact the safety and precision of landings. In selecting WonderLand, the panel of judges cited the need for safe landing paths and risk management around drone operations.
Pitch the Press judges listened to two-minute pitches from 17 companies. Wonder co-founder Idan Shimon presented on behalf of his team. Companies were evaluated on innovation and potential for ROI, and the top three contenders were selected as winners.
Wonder Robotics’s winning pitch was great practice for the upcoming 2022 GENIUS NY Pitch Finals on November 3, 2022 at the Marriot Syracuse Downtown. On that evening, judges will award one company out of the five GENIUS NY Cohort 6 teams the grand prize of $1 million, based on a five-minute pitch and Q&A. The remaining teams will each receive $500,000, for an award total of $3 million. The event is free and open to the public, though registration is required.
