Object Classes detected by SWARM
We detect Classes and Subclasses following established standards
SWARM software is optimized to detect following classes with dedicated subclasses in case a more precise categorization is needed.
The vehicle classes are compliant with the BASt / TLS standard

Description
Example
Text
  • People who are walking or riding kick scooters (including electric kick scooters), Segways, skateboards, etc. are labeled as pedestrians.
  • People inside other vehicles are not labeled, except for people standing on the top of cars/trucks or standing on flatbeds of trucks.
  • Mannequins, statues, dummies, objects covered with cloth covers, billboards, posters, pedestrians inside buildings, or reflections of people are not labeled
Description
Example
Text
  • Mainly for public transport reasons, we can switch to count heads only
Description
Example
Text
  • A car is a machine mainly transporting people. Cars include: small-medium and large vehicles, including pickup-trucks and minivans. Cars do not include: Vans with or without windows. Single-unit-trucks, articulated-trucks, buses or trucks-with-trailers. Cars also do not include “unclear” classes such as trams or tractors. See examples below. Cars do not include cars that pull a trailer.
Description
Example
Text
  • Cars and vans pulling a trailer are classified as car-with-trailer
  • The prerequisite is to see at least one of the trailers axis and the car without being occluded in the picture
Description
Example
Text
  • A utility van is a vehicle that is designed to carry out a specific task with more efficacy than a passenger vehicle. Another purpose is delivering (goods or services).
  • We distinguish a cargo/delivery/utility van from a passenger van by their amount of windows in the backseat row
Description
Example
Trucks are distinguished by the following points:
  • roadway wear/tear (Straßenabnützung) is different
  • different driving license necessary
  • amount of axes
Description
Example
Text
  • Single-unit-trucks should only include C1 (<7.5 T) trucks with 2 axes (maximum 4 wheels)
Description
Example
Text
  • Truck-with-trailer are trucks (single-unit OR articulated) pulling an extra trailer; driving license C1E
Description
Example
  • Articulated-trucks are trucks >7.5 T with at least 3 axes (minimum 6 wheels)
Description
Example
  • Vehicles that can carry many (>10) passengers; mainly used for public transport.
  • The bus definition includes autobus, coach, double-decker, motor bus, motor coach, omnibus, passenger vehicle, school bus.
  • Trams are labeled as others.
Description
Example
Text
  • People riding or pushing an engine or not-engine powered single-lane vehicle.
  • People riding a bicycle are not labeled as people but labeled as cyclists instead
Description
Example
  • People riding or pushing an engine or not-engine powered single-lane vehicle.
All remaining objects detected or in case the accuracy does not match the predefined value are classified as unclear object.
Depending on the Configuration and model chosen during your set-up, different objects will be taken into consideration. For more info, see the use case description.
