Sensor Fusion Annotation autonomous vehicle API launches

Richard Harris Richard Harris in API Friday, February 16, 2018

Artificial Intelligence API for LIDAR and RADAR point cloud data hopes to accelerate the development of the driverless vehicle.

Scale API has launched its Sensor Fusion Annotation API for LIDAR and RADAR point cloud data, which accelerates the development of perception algorithms for autonomous vehicles. Dozens of automobile OEMs and self-driving car companies (such as GM Cruise and Voyage) already use Scale API's comprehensive Image Annotation APIs to produce premium training datasets for their computer vision algorithms.

Scale API leverages machine learning, statistical models and human-generated data to deliver best-in-class object recognition, capable of accurately analyzing millions of camera images, LIDAR frames, and RADAR data each month. With Scale API’s robust QA processes, humans and machines work in perfect harmony to keep costs low and quality high.

The combination of human and artificial intelligence results in rigorously tested training data that help autonomous vehicles more quickly learn to navigate independently while accurately identifying road markers, vehicles, and other objects in an instant.

Developers can use Sensor Fusion and Image Annotation APIs for:

  • LIDAR/RADAR Annotation: Identifies objects in a 3D point cloud and draws bounding cuboids around the specified objects, returning the positions and sizes of these boxes.

  • Semantic Segmentation: Classifies every pixel of an image according to the labels provided to return a full semantic, pixel-wise, and dense segmentation of the image.

  • Polygon Annotation: Identifies objects (such as vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, and more) and draws bounding polygons around the specified objects, returning the vertices of these polygons.

  • Bounding Box Annotation: Identifies objects and draws bounding 2D boxes around the specified objects, returning the vertices of these boxes.

  • Line Annotation: Identifies the different features of a road, such as lane lines, and draws segmented lines along each object, returning the vertices of these segmented lines.

  • Point Annotation: Identifies the location of objects and draws points at specified locations, returning the locations of these points.

  • Cuboid Annotation: Identifies objects and draws perspective 3D cuboids around the specified objects in camera images, returning the positions and sizes of these boxes.

“The need for training data for self-driving cars is rapidly growing,"said Alexandr Wang, CEO of Scale API. "We strive to help our customers scale up their training data needs while maintaining quality, thereby becoming a core part of their AI infrastructure. I'm truly excited to see how Scale API will enable the future of the autonomous vehicle space, and AI applications more broadly."
