Crowdsourcing Project Honda

Marking roadways and obstacles in traffic photos.

For Honda automakers, clickworker has electronically marked (image annotation) the roadways and obstacles such as street signs and pedestrians in 10,000 photos of various traffic situations. Honda will use these marked photos in the construction of a car equipped with built-in obstacle recognition software that will recognize obstacles in the street and will then automatically avoid them. The job was completed in a few weeks.
