Love to see how the team improves the model with next apps.

Pros:

Well-thought Machine Learning model, shows what mobile apps can achieve when AR is leveraged.

Cons:

Still in RnD version.

This is yet another RnD product from Netguru. Some fun around AR and ML algos.
But does it recognize them better than my buddy, @jimmydouglas???
@rrhoover We’ll find out! 😎
Hey @rrhoover @jimmydouglas , we can detect front of any car with quite satisfying accuracy of 98%. For classification, we support newest versions of 4 cars in CarLens: Honda Civic, Ford Fiesta, Nissan Qashqai, Volkswagen Passat with effectiveness around 90% so there is a chance you will be better doing this job by yourself @jimmydouglas ;). The goal of this project was to challenge ourselves and see how we can leverage AR and ML in mobile projects. We’ve learned a lot, build internal process to create more apps powered with ML and stretched our minds looking for ways to collect images for the dataset. This is an early beta version of the app and we would like to keep improving the model and adding new cars in the future.
@rrhoover @krzysztof_jackowski It’s awesome! Can confirm, it thinks my GTI is a Passat. 😊
@rrhoover @krzysztof_jackowski @jimmydouglas what if your GTI has some parts taken from Passat? ;-)

Would love to see a gamified version, collecting cars like Pokemon in the real world!

Pros:

Impressive use case.

Cons:

Limited car model detection. Categorized my Altima as Passat. Since this is RnD project, I'm sure it will improve over time.

I also thought of pokemon hunting while trying to find all the four models. Would be great for kids and sometimes even for adults.
Great job!! 😀 Will it work in India and what all cars does it support?
@ayush_chandra yes it should work in India also. Currently we support 2018 versions of Honda Civic, Ford Fiesta, Nissan Qashqai and Volkswagen Passat.
