Cascade Studio

Introduction 

VisionAI CascadeStudio is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Software Toolkit for Training, Visualization and Testing of AI models (cascade model) for fast object detection in images and video's (rigid or near rigid objects e.g. faces, human body, cars, animals, plants, flowers, equipment, products on production lines, etc.).

NOTE: the aim of the VisionAI CascadeStudio AI models (cascade models) is not the identification of a specific object (e.g. a specific person) but the detection of a type of object. In case you want to identify a specific object (e.g. to identify a specific person) then you need to locate the object with the cascade model and then identify it. VisionAI can be trained to identify a specific object (e.g. person).
The cascade model can be seen as one of the building blocks of an Artificial Intelligence (AI) implementation because of its fast speed and accuracy.

How To Use

Cascade Studio is very easy to use. Most of the sometimes complex tasks are done automatically and you just need to select the input images and a very few input parameters. Cascade Studio uses a special optimized/speed up version of the cascade trainer and because of this the training time is decreased with about 30-40%. Training a cascade model is a long lasting process because of the large amount of images needed. You need hundreds of images of the objects you want to detect (positive images) and at least as many images where the object is not present (negative images) for the training of the cascade model. In case you can use a computer with several processors and/or processor cores then the software will work even faster because of the built in multi-processor/core support module.

You need many images of the objects you want to detect (positive images) and at least as many images where the object is not present (negative images) for the training of the cascade model. A well trained cascade model can be used with great success to automatically and very fast detect objects in images or video's.

Test Cascade Models In Images & Video's

You can test your CascadeStudio project's trained cascade model or several loaded external cascade models in different types of images or video's: local video file, local camera, ip (internet) camera, etc.

There is also a built-in motion detector which detects if there is any movement in the video stream.

If you select the 'All' option then the whole video will be recorded. If you select the 'Motion' option then the recording will only start automatically when there is motion detected in the video. The recorded video will be subdivided into Segmentation size pieces (Mb). In case you want to limit the maximum recorded video size then check the Limit Total option and set the size in Gb. You can also set some recording options (encoder, video quality, audio, etc.) in the video settings.

There is an extensive manual/built-in help in the software.

You can load several cascade models for testing at the same time. This means that the objects detected by all of the cascade models will be shown in the video or image.


You can also use the specialized software package VisionAIVideo for monitoring and detection of objects in videos.

For further info look at the demonstration video's:

VisionAI Video

VisionAIVideo can be used for detecting movement (motion) or objects in live or recorded video. Objects are detected with the so called cascade models which can be trained by VisionAI Cascade Studio. You can detect rigid or near rigid objects e.g. faces, human body, cars, animals, plants, flowers, equipment, products on production lines, etc. in video.
