Getting email alerts from the YOLOv3-based driveway detection system

The YOLOv3-based driveway detection system is now running full-time to see how workable the system is in real life. The associated rtaiDesigner design looks like this:

It has a new SPE called SendEmail that, well, does exactly that. The YOLOFilter SPE has been modified so that it also attaches a frame from the video captured during the detection. The SendEmail SPE then creates an email with the text message generated by YOLOFilter and attaches the image. The screen capture at the top shows an example of the email that is sent.

SendEmail can queue up messages if they occur at more than a preset rate so that the total email rate is limited. After a timeout, the email sent contains the detections that had been queued up during the hold-off period.

It is also possible to look at the historical data to see what actually transpired. The PutManifold SPE passes the video data and YOLO metadata to ManifoldStore for long-term storage. The rtaiView app can then be used to look back over the data. The screen capture above shows a frame from the same sequence displayed in rtaiView and the associated YOLO metadata. It’s all working quite well, actually.
