ARTEMIS Bear Detector

Model Overview

The CVEDIA ARTEMIS Bear Detector was created to detect bears for safety and forestry purposes. ARTEMIS localizes a variety of bear types including brown, black, grizzly, and polar bears, along with cubs. Built using proprietary CVEDIA synthetic technology, Idaios distinguishes bears from common animals such as dogs, for usage along forestry trails, on farms, or on residential property.

CVEDIA is a pioneer in the use of synthetic data for machine perception. We use deep learning to create synthetic-based detection and classification algorithms. CVEDIA models actually outperform traditional models because synthetic data allows for feature-based design. That means our models are safer and quicker to market. Today we work with over 30 of the world’s largest companies on their most complex deep learning projects.

Every model is backed by an ongoing maintenance service, as well as the ability to customize and add to a model through our in-house development team. We’ll even help you deploy our models in your software stack. Contact us for more information.

Fine Grain Classification

Speak to our team to discuss animal classification as a service add on or as a separate model. CVEDIA’s in-house team will work with you to define your requirements, and build a synthetic-based model incorporating your classification specifications.

Additional Species

CVEDIA models are built using proprietary synthetic data technology – meaning adding additional classes to your model is possible in a matter of weeks.

Use Cases

Parks and Forestry

ARTEMIS can be used with simple and low-cost cameras to detect bears along park trails, in rural working environments, and on farms.

Property Security

Use ARTEMIS to keep residential families and properties safe from bear intrusions using regular security cameras.

Farm Security

Maintain safe and secure pastures for livestock and crops with ARTEMIS, with the ability to distinguish bears from common farm animals.
