Truck Detection

Detects trucks on 1232x1232 GeoTIFF Pleiades images


Orbital Insight’s truck detection algorithm uses wide area object detection in Pleiades imagery to accurately identify and quantify trucks. This saves analysts significant amounts of time in conducting pattern of life analyses and activity based intelligence.

Technical Description

Orbital Insight’s Truck Detector operates on high resolution imagery from Pléiades Streaming (One Atlas) with Raster Tiling (UP42) and produces point detections corresponding to the location of trucks within a specified input image (GeoTIFF).

Use Cases

Counting trucks across a wide area at scale allows geospatial analysts to monitor activity-based intelligence, observing emerging trends including baseline and anomalous economic and geopolitical activity levels.

Supported Input

This block can be used with:

  • Pléiades Display (Streaming) with Raster Tiling
  • Pléiades Display (Download) with DIMAP -> GeoTIFF Conversion --> Raster CRS Conversion (CRS: EPSG:3857) --> Raster Tiling

Pléiades Reflectance (Download) with Pan-Sharpening (UP42) is currently not supported.
