Few-shot object detection

Image recognition AI detects new objects with unprecedented accuracy, quickly and easily, by registering a single image.

  • Even with a change in the product or part handled in the manufacturing and logistics workplace, this technology detects the new object immediately just by registering a single image.
  • In the past, it was necessary to prepare and learn from many images, creating extra work. The “Few-Shot Object Detection AI” is automatically pre-trained to recognize the shapes of non-target objects in the training images, a proprietary development in the training process that enables the AI to detect new objects with the registration of a single image and no retraining in the field.


  • Factories: Check location of products and parts.
  • Plants: Detect and track facilities.
  • Logistics: Detect and track products.
