3D Point Cloud Annotation Services

Our advanced 3D LiDAR & Radar annotation tools and workspace enhancements enable rapid labeling of your moving objects across multiple frames and speed your model to market.

Detect and define the location of your target objects. Our video annotation experts use bounding boxes to accurately segment videos used for a variety of applications including autonomous driving, food system optimization, and more. Bounding boxes are best used for object tracking and object detection.

  • Achieve accurate placement with just two clicks with crosshair lines
  • Use state tracking for occlusion, truncation and overlapping objects
  • Create custom classes, multiple attributes per instance, and hierarchical relationships
  • Power up your object tracking with ML Assist for faster high-quality annotations
  • Use ML-assisted or linear interpolation between frames

people detection

Localize and detect complex objects with precision.

Polygons are used as part of our video annotation solutions to improve the accuracy of object detection algorithms. They are best used for applications when a more precise definition of an object’s boundaries are needed such as vehicle detection, crop identification and more.

  • Apply ML-assisted annotation for polygon for auto-annotation
  • Use grouping and layering for similar objects
  • Engage quick editing tools for adding and removing points
  • Create custom classes, multiple attributes per instance, and hierarchical relationships
  • Utilize linear interpolation between frames

Easily detect and annotate pose variations.

Keypoints are a video annotation technique that our team uses to capture the location and orientation of landmarks within a video. Keypoints are best for motion tracking, facial landmark detection and hand gesture recognition as they track the movement of individual objects.

  • Configure any custom keypoint shape including skeletons, hands, and eyes in a repeatable pattern for consistent results
  • Landmark important features using points
  • Get support for custom classes, multiple attributes per instance, and hierarchical relationships
  • Utilize linear interpolation between frames

Annotate straight or curved objects with precision.

Lines and arrows are used in 2D video annotation to highlight important features in a video for object tracking or scene understanding. This is useful for understanding things like lane marking and traffic patterns or identifying buildings in a city.

  • Outline object boundaries with lines for clear edge identification
  • Highlight directional indicators with arrows
  • Get support for custom classes, multiple attributes per instance, and hierarchical relationships
  • Utilize linear interpolation between frames

line arrows

Detect the depth and height of your object of interest for vehicle and pedestrian identification, robotic movement, and interior furniture placement.

  • Apply cuboids in both 2D & 3D for a variety of mixed applications
  • Enable highly accurate 2D cuboids in just three clicks via our multi-click technology
  • Get support for custom classes, multiple attributes per instance, and hierarchical relationships
  • Utilize linear interpolation between frames

HOW IT WORKS

How Sama 3D Point Cloud Annotation works

Pre-annotations

Supports pre-annotations, including manual or model-generated labels for enhancing speed or annotation, or validating model performance.

Sensor Fusion

Supports multiple sensors with a fused sensor architecture, which syncs all the assets to enhance the data for annotation.

3D to 2D Projection

Project 3D objects within the point cloud into 2D RGB images.

Fixed World

World coordinate conversion: by providing the sensor’s pose, our solution converts your point clouds from local coordinates to world coordinates.

Automatic Ground Detection

Accelerate annotation by removing visual noise and enhancing accuracy by ensuring ground points are not labeled as another class. Extend a classic morphological approach with semi-supervised learning with our automatic ground detection.

Custom Intensity Values

Color map visualization for intensity values and custom ranges for focusing the color map on lower-intensity objects.

99%

First batch client acceptance rate across 10B points per month
