Challenge

Scythe Robotics’s autonomous commercial mowers operate on large lawns. They are equipped with stereo camera pairs and other sensors.

The objective of the perception model is to recognize fully drivable area and distinguish between an area covered with leaves or dirt, lawn borders, and unknown objects.

Scythe takes a deep learning approach, which requires a considerable amount of accurately labeled 2D and 3D data across a variety of more than 50 classes.

Solution

Scythe segmented drivable areas and obstacles on the platform for the past three years to create accurate labels.

The custom insights tab enables the engineering team to follow up on the most critical labeling metrics,and billing of the outsourced labeling.

In the past years, the Scythe team and Segments.ai collaborated closely to develop and improve numerous features to speed up the labeling, such as SAM.
