Truck detection

An algorithm that detects trucks in Pléiades imagery.


The algorithm uses object detection in Pléiades display imagery to detect and quanitfy trucks. The result is a GeoJSON file with points drawn on detected trucks.

Truck detection can be used for supply chain and logistics management, traffic management, and urban planning.

Training data and accuracy

The algorithm has been developed using 50,000 images in 50 countries spanning 6 continents.

Scenarios represented in the training data:

  • Different times of day
  • Different times of year
  • Different terrains
  • Different object configurations

Requirements for input imagery

Checkmark inline-icon The STAC item should be a Pléiades image of the display radiometric processing level.

Checkmark inline-icon The STAC item should be CNAM-compatible. Check that the STAC item has been added to storage in 2023 or later.

Input parameters

Required parameters

Input imagery

You need to specify the STAC items you want to apply the process to.

Output title

You need to specify the title of the output objects. This title will be assigned to the resulting STAC item and STAC collection.
