The retail automation provider tracked objects across different views & replaced 37 annotation hours with 1.

Problem

Tracking objects across different views coupled with changing weather & lighting conditions led to annotation inconsistencies & high costs.

Solution

Deployed Encord's micro-model & interpolation modules to track objects across different views, enforce consistency, & increase labeling efficiency.

Results

37x increase in labeling efficiency. Annotation accuracy increased from 94% to 99%.

  • 37X faster than manual labeling
  • 4pp accuracy boost
  • 99% annotation accuracy
