Release notes

We are pleased to announce the availability of version 1.11.1 Live Sense SDK for iOS.

This is a stable release. We are constantly working on new features, stabilizing APIs, improving our KPIs, and evaluating your feedback.

Changes

This section documents major changes to each release that may require you to update your application.

Version 1.11.1

Improvements

  • Improved the detection of stop signs by Road Signs model.

Known issues and workarounds

  • The distance and relative position calculation for detections is in Beta, the returned distance and relative position values may be inaccurate.
  • Using a lower confidence threshold will result in more detections, but an overall lower accuracy. This can sometimes cause the labels to show false positives. For this reason, applications should keep their confidence threshold at or above 0.6 to maintain reasonably accurate output.
  • Lower accuracy for detections is noted for quant variants of pothole and cone_barrier models.
