TALOS Thermal Human Detector

Model Overview

Reliably detect humans using the CVEDIA TALOS Thermal Human Detector. Trained to perform from a variety of ground-to-ground perspectives, TALOS was developed using proprietary synthetic technology for better performance in crowds.

TALOS performs in both indoor and outdoor scenarios including low visibility and nighttime, 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 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.

CVEDIA Services


Each CVEDIA model comes backed with an ongoing maintenance agreement. Our team is available for continuous improvements and to ensure upkeep. Reach out to us for more information.

Fine Grain Classification

Speak to our team to discuss model 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 Classes

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


Use the TALOS Thermal Human Detector as a part of a larger security framework. Enhance your existing security grid and ensure your system is ready for anything with a model trained to detect an extensive variety of situations.


Ensure your driver safety system is prepared with TALOS. Because TALOS is highly effective in crowds and busy areas, you can be sure that your ADAS / AD system is state of the art and safe for both drivers and pedestrians, especially at nighttime and in low visibility.

Perimeter Security

Add to existing perimeter security measures with a model built to detect humans in the night and in low visibility conditions. The TALOS Thermal Human Detector has been tailored to reduce false positive in typical conditions through CVEDIA’s pioneering use of synthetic data.

Public Events

Ensure peace of mind in public spaces and events with fewer resources using the TALOS Thermal Human Detector. CVEDIA models help you surpass the data collection and training phases of your project, so that you can get to market quicker.
