Project Overview Creating a model to detect deer when driving down the road

Classes There are 3 categories used to create the class for each photo. Example: buck_front_standing

  1. Deer type - buck, doe, fawn; help model in case it improves results to distinguish between having antlers or not, having spots or not, etc
  2. View of deer - front, rear, side; not only to help the model identify a deer that looks different from different angles (2 legs from the front) but also in case long term there is usefulness in identifying that a deer is running towards the road or away from it
  3. Activity - standing, walking, running, eating; again, both to help the model but also for "threat" assessment as you drive and need to understand the current state of the deer

Status/Timeline Initial images loaded (c. 60) to experiment with. Hope to have a larger dataset by 2023

Contribution and Labeling Guidelines Any and all are welcome! We especially need deer in settings around roads.

Trained Model API

This project has a trained model available that you can try in your browser and use to get predictions via our Hosted Inference API and other deployment methods.
