Presentation

Accelerating ground truth generation and data labeling for autonomous driving.

Datasets are used widely for the validation and training of perception stack in self-driving. The needed effort for annotation is directly proportional to the amount of recorded data. This becomes quite expensive and time-consuming when it comes to having big chunks of recorded data. Brightskies has built an AI engine called BrightAnotate that is capable of automating ground truth generation for road topology, infrastructure, static environment, and traffic participants fusing multiple sensors like LIDAR, 360 Cameras, Radars, and GPS. Combined with a concrete annotation process, Brightskies has successfully reduced the manual effort needed by 50% and hence improve overall productivity.
