How Kognic is Adapting to Trends in Perception

In the ever-evolving field of perception within the automotive industry, we are at the forefront of adaptation. By leveraging the latest trends and insights, we are ensuring optimal performance and efficiency in our tools and processes.

Sensor Fusion: Meeting Complex Needs

Our focus on sensor fusion has allowed us to adapt our tools to meet the complex needs of the industry. With the multiplication of sensors and the combination of different types of images and LiDAR setups, our tools can seamlessly work with any sensor configuration. We have also addressed the challenge of labeling multiple sensors by developing an efficient solution. By annotating in the multi-sensor space, our tools leverage all the sensors to understand the world, while annotators only need to label one sensor. This approach significantly increases efficiency and productivity, resulting in multiple labels being produced with minimal effort.

Automatic 2D Tracker: Enhancing Annotation Workflows

We understand the importance of automation in providing meaningful feedback from humans. Our automatic 2D tracker streamlines the annotation workflow by automatically adjusting bounding boxes to fit moving objects, such as traffic signs. This co-pilot approach assists annotators in the most tedious and time-consuming tasks, ensuring data quality while reducing manual effort.

Optimizing Big Datasets: Cost-Effective Solutions

With the exponential growth of datasets, we recognize the need to optimize annotation processes. We aim to lower the total program cost by enabling customers to focus their resources on what truly matters for their specific use case. We invest heavily in automation to support efficient data annotation, reducing the reliance on human annotations. By carefully selecting what to annotate and emphasizing data that contributes to system performance, we ensure cost-effective and valuable outcomes.

Staying Ethical: Social Responsibility Matters

We place a strong emphasis on ethics and social responsibility. We have a legally binding code of conduct that governs our partnerships and business practices. This code ensures fair payment for annotators, preventing exploitation and ensuring a safe and respectful working environment. We also prioritize fair working conditions, including monitoring practices and limiting overtime. Our commitment to ethical practices is at the core of our company values.

By continuously adapting to the evolving landscape of perception, we remain a trusted partner for our customers. In tomorrow’s post we will elaborate on the current way of working with annotations and how we believe it should improve.
