GoPro 7 Black automatically follow subject from appropriate mount

I have bought a GoPro 7 Black and want to mount it on a stand and have it follow the subject of the video up to 40 m away. I know of some expensive 3rd party devices that offer this. Will the camera automatically follow the subject anyway if set up right and on an appropriate stand?

Re: GoPro 7 Black automatically follow subject from appropriate mount

The GoPro 7 does not contain any feature that allows automatic tracking of a subject.  You would have to have a 3rd party device that would provide this feature or you would have to use subject tracking in a 3rd party piece of software.  Whether or not the subject could be tracked using a GoPro would depend on the capabilities of the hardware or software in question.
