HERE Live Sense SDK Beta

Powered by AI, enables apps and devices to detect hazards in real-time to provide drivers with awareness of their environment

live sense customizable

Customizable

Fine tune your app by controlling the number of detectable objects featured, for custom implementation and use cases.

live sense offline processing

Offline processing

Detect objects in real-time using edge processing on the device that works for any type of vehicle, regardless of internet connectivity.

live sense flexible

Flexible

Develop for a wide range of devices (PNDs, dashcams, smartphones). Use for Android and iOS, with Linux coming soon.

Features and capabilities

Detects and classifies objects

Using a camera-enabled edge device, objects on the road and in the surrounding space can be detected and classified including vehicles, bicycles, pedestrians, constructions zones and potholes.

Real-time hazard alerts

Inform drivers with audio and/or visual alerts of potential hazards for greater awareness e.g. vehicles braking, pedestrians, bicycles, potholes, construction and others.

Alerts model

Contains extra heuristics for alerting the user of possible hazards in their path, such as time-to-collision warnings for impact with the leading vehicle, and alerts for pedestrians and bicycles entering the vehicle's direct path.

Region-specific options

To provide better detection, some models allow selection of region. If the desired region is supported, a machine learning model better tuned for the region can be used in place of the default global model.

Available for a variety of devices

Compatible with a variety of edge devices, including smartphones, dashcams and PNDs with cameras. The performance of Live Sense SDK will vary between devices, as CPU, GPU and display resolution are primary determinants.

Boost your app functionality

Make the capabilities of your apps more powerful by combining Live Sense SDK with other HERE products, like HERE Location Services, HERE Traffic and HERE Studio.

Offline capability

Key features of the app, including detection, classification and notification do not require data or Wi-Fi connection, freeing up data consumption on the edge device.

Augmented reality

Create a unique navigation experience by incorporating the augmented reality capabilities of Live Sense SDK with HERE SDK, or HERE Location Services.

Contextual route guidance

Enhances route guidance by using objects in the driver’s view that are detected in real-time as guidance points for maneuvers. e.g. "Turn left at the stop sign". Delivered with the help of HERE SDK or HERE Location Services. 

Change detection

Detect live changes in road conditions and keep the driver informed. Once the user’s device is connected to the internet, updates can be integrated to keep their maps up-to-date.
