Changing the paradigm
of computer vision

Embedded computer vision that is fast, cost-effective and precise

A new era established...

Traditional methods of computer vision consume lots of bandwidth or compute resources before even talking about the privacy issues involved. Today, Datakalab ushers in a new era of vision that is anonymous by design, lightweight and precise. Gone are the days of privacy concerns and expensive cloud and GPU solutions. 
Say hello to performance, privacy and low cost CPUs.


Private by Design

Images are processed in real time and never stored locally or centrally. The only output from our software are anonymous statistics.

100% on the edge

Datakalab's algorithms were built from the ground up to run locally on x86 CPUs so that video feeds can be processed in real time and independent of any internet connection.

Self Adapting

Datakalab's algorithms automatically take into account the differences in camera lighting conditions that exist or may change over time without needing any additional human data annotation.

Energy and Cost Efficient

No costly cloud processing or bandwidth is needed. GPUs? We don't need no GPUs. Run Datakalab effortlessly on an x86 architecture with pre-existing cameras.

Highly Precise

Datakalab's algorithms track and aggregate data over multiple frames to so that you get the statistics you need with over 97% precision in certain use cases.

Nimble and Fast

With some of the industry's lightest minimum requirements, install Datakalab on your pre-existing hardware infrastructure. Gone are they days of expensive 3D cameras and GPUs.


Unicity Detection

Anti Tailgating monitoring 24x7 without expensive 3D cameras or GPUs

  • Gate Manufacturers

    Whether it be at the immigration border, a metro station or a secure entrance for a data center or warehouse, Datakalab's unique unicity detection algorithm helps keep people moving while ensuring no one is tail gating behind. By using vision instead of time of flight, we can see things that others can't. Higher precision while reducing hardware implementation spend.

  • Security System Integrators

    As a system integrator, are your clients looking for innovative solutions to complex problems while respecting an individual's right to privacy? Do you need a lightweight vision solution that can integrate in your client's hypervisor or VMS? Look no further. 

Video Analytics 

Bringing Google Analytics like statistics to the physical world

  • Digital out of Home

    Gain better insight into which advertising placements generate the highest reach. Open new revenue streams by providing people analytics to municipalities.

  • Transportation

    Calculate fraud vs paid users . Let your users check the people density in buses and metros in real time. Determine if you need to put another bus or train in operation.

  • Retail

    Gain insight into the peak traffic times and demographics of your shoppers using pre-existing security cameras. Refine the storefront rent based on people data.

  • Smart Cities

    Learn how people go about your city to better serve them. Get a breakdown of the traffic type (people, cars, cyclists...) per street.

Reinforcing Mask Wearing


Allow the broadcast of audio announcements encouraging travelers to wear masks when mask wearing drops below 80%.

  • "Smart cameras can now be installed in public transportation networks allowing operators the ability to measure the percentage of people wearing masks, without using any personal data. I salute Datakalab, a French start-up, helping us maintain social distancing best practices."

    Jean-Baptiste Djebbari, French Minister of Transport.
