Support for vehicles from countries other than North America

by exuma » Sun Jan 29, 2017 5:11 am

Hi,

Do you plan on adding support for vehicles other than North America? Or is there a way that I can "teach" the service new vehicles?

Over a test of 136 vehicles, the average Make confidence I got was 0.31.

I'm from South Africa.

Thanks.

Hi Exuma,

The vehicle recognition model is currently trained with US vehicles 1990 and later. We are happy to expand into other countries as long as the commercial opportunity makes sense. We would like to enable self-training models but we do not have that feature open to developers yet.

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for the reply, it makes perfect sense. Unfortunately I am not aware of such an opportunity at the moment.

Was playing around with the API, hoping to be able to identify some of the vehicles on the suspicious vehicle list in our neighbourhood. Number plate recognition would be first prize, but I believe you need high res cameras focussed at the right angle etc., so the Cloud API would be a very great second best as it could alert you when a certain vehicle make, model and colour is in the area.
