FREE: TALOS Human Detector

Model Overview

Test CVEDIA technology for yourself with this free off-the-shelf synthetic algorithm. CVEDIA is proud to provide the TALOS Human Detector free of charge for all non-production use, including testing and development. Built using MobileNetV2, TALOS is a lightweight algorithm designed to run on chip, cloud, and docker with 11+ deployment types.

Detect a wide variety of person features and conditions using the TALOS Crowd-Ready Human Detector. Trained to perform from a variety of ground-to-aerial perspectives, TALOS was developed using proprietary synthetic technology for better performance in crowds. TALOS performs in both indoor and outdoor scenarios including daytime and low lighting, and is highly effective for detecting humans in groups, busy areas, and crowds.



Optimized for edge performance with a low power profile


Ground-to-ground and overwatch perspectives


Dawn to dusk; Artificial lighting


Environmentally-agnostic performance


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.
