Demonstration video


A robot made by GamePlace to digitize their inventory. Delver Lens is running on the Samsung tablet. Cards move along the conveyor belt and pass in front of the tablet’s camera. Delver Lens captures images, crop and recognizes the card in front of the camera. Then, the app fetches information about the price of each card and prepare a CSV file that can be exported to websites.

Delver Lens runs at 10 FPS average (standard deviation 6) on a Nexus 5x device (no server required). It can recognize more than 35 thousand cards using a 5 MB model. You can check some of the concepts that go into the app here.
