Bosch AI Camera Trainer Released And Tested

By: IPVM Team, Published on Apr 09, 2019

Bosch is releasing a highly unusual new AI feature - 'Camera Trainer'. Now, coming as a standard feature in Bosch IVA/EVA analytics, one can train the camera to detect custom objects one wants.

While detecting a face or a person or a car is increasingly common, Bosch is allowing users to define what objects are most interesting to them - whether it is a drill or a door opening or a ladder or a buggy or whatever might be important to one's camera scene.

On the positive side, this opens up many possibilities. On the negative side, it raises the question of how well this will work and how hard it is to set it up.

IPVM tested the beta version of Camera Trainer, configuring it in multiple scenes, to see how it performed.
