On device demos

The Scailable Edge AI Manager includes a basic visualisation engine. It contains a universal counter that works with many different Scailable models and an emotion visualisation that works for the Scailable emotion recognition model.
You can view real-time results of the AI detection with the visualisation engine. The default engine contains a universal counter and an emotion recognition visualisation.
You need to select a model that is supported by the visualisation, set in and output correctly, and the inference needs to run in order to be able to display the visualisation.

The universal counter

The universal counter displays bounding boxes and counts certain classes of objects.

Select a model for the universal counter

The types of models that can be used are models that locate people, vehicles and/or faces and return the bounding boxes for them. These include the following models that are provided by Scailable.:
  • Car location model
  • Face locator
  • People and vehicle alarm

Setting up the input for the universal counter

The universal counter will work with any standard input and with multiple camera's.
For a demo you can select a suitable image, the traffic, faces or crowd images will work for many models. The best input depends on the chosen model.

Setting up the output for the universal counter

The inference frequency does not really matter, but it works best when the speed is faster than once every 50ms. As fast as possible works great.

Running the model for the universal counter

Start the inference engine as usual, by clicking the "Run" button on the "Run" tab

Accessing the universal counter visualisation

Accessing the visualisation can be done in a web browser by clicking the "View live visualisation" button in the Edge AI Manager interface.
Alternatively the demo is available at the same location as the Edge AI Manager but with a /demo/ appended to the URL. So if your Edge AI manager is accessible at http://localhost:8081/ the default visualisation will be available at http://localhost:8081/demo/.
The visualisation will show the latest image and depending on the model that is used a counter and overlayed bounding boxes. It will update a few times a second, depending on the model.

Editing your own visualisations

At the moment creating and editing visualisations for other models needs custom programming. We're happy to provide help with that. For more information please contact our support using our chat.


The visualisation shows no boxes

The visualisation needs a short time to get started, usually a second depending on your computer.
The model might be incompatible or the input might be unusable for the model.
If you test the model in the AI manager the output should show a part with boxes or bboxes in the json output. If the bounding boxes part shows all zeroes the input is not recognized as on of the classes. If there is not bounding boxes output you might try another model from your library.

I don't see images in the visualisation

Check if the configuration is saved correctly. If the ImageEndpoint is still 0 you need to stop the inference engine and update the settings.
