SOD is an embedded, modern cross-platform computer vision and machine learning software library that exposes a set of APIs for deep-learning, advanced media analysis & processing including real-time, multi-class object detection and model training on embedded systems with limited computational resource and IoT devices.
Multi-class object detection on the host CPU (no GPU involved).
Real-Time, single-class face detection.
SOD was built to provide a common infrastructure for computer vision applications and to accelerate the use of machine perception in open source as well commercial products.
SOD implements state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms found to be mandatory in real world application areas including but not limited to:
Scene & Content Analysis.
Sobel operator, Otsu's binarization and over 100 image/frame processing & analysis interfaces.
Designed for computational efficiency and with a strong focus on real-time applications. SOD includes a comprehensive set of both classic and state-of-the-art deep-neural networks with their pre-trained models. Built with SOD:
Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) for multi-class (20 and 80) object detection & classification.
Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN) for text generation (i.e. Shakespeare, 4chan, Kant, Python code, etc.).
Decision trees for single class, real-time object detection.
A brand new architecture written specifically for SOD named RealNets.
Cross platform, dependency free, amalgamated (single C file) and heavily optimized. Real world use cases includes:
Detect & recognize objects (faces included) at Real-time.
License plate extraction.
Extract ridges and bifurcations from a fingerprint images.
Classify human actions.
Eye & Pupil tracking.
Facial & body shape extraction.
Suitable for deep learning on limited computational resource, embedded systems and IoT devices.
Reasonably fast, CPU capable RealNets model training without GPU.
Easy to integrate with existing code bases. Interpolatable with OpenCV and/or any other proprietary API.
The documentation works both as an API reference and a programming tutorial. It describes the internal structure of the library and guides one in creating applications with a few lines of code. Note that SOD is straightforward to learn, even for new programmer.
A quick introduction to programming with the SOD Embedded C/C++ API with real-world code samples implemented in C.
