HERMES Thermal Vehicle Detector

Model Overview

Operating from both a car-mounted and elevated perspective, the HERMES Thermal Vehicle Detector is effective across a wide range of environments from urban to rural. Use this model as a part of your ADAS system, or for smart city applications, traffic analytics, insurance purposes, or intelligent transportation systems. HERMES is effective in night conditions and low visibility, making it an indispensable component to ADAS vehicle features.



Optimized for edge performance with a low power profile


300 metres


Dawn to dusk; Low 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.

Fine Grain Classification

Speak to our team to discuss vehicle 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

Vehicle ADAS

Use HERMES in your vehicle safety system to correctly detect vehicles at night time and in low visibility. HERMES has been developed to maintain a low power profile, perfect for battery-powered vehicles and applications.

Smart Cities

Use HERMES as a reliable component of your smart intersection grid. HERMES performs with higher accuracy through proprietary CVEDIA synthetic technology.
