Experimental Semantic Channels


This feature is an experimental feature and is subject to change. Experimental features should not be used in production products and are unsupported. We are providing these experimental features as a preview of what might be coming in future releases. If you have feedback on an experimental feature post your feedback in the Lightship Developer Community

For the semantic segmentation feature, we are providing several experimental channels. These are provided for testing and experimental purposes, and may need accuracy improvements. We’re interested in feedback for these channels so we can prioritize which channels to focus on for future releases.

These channels are supported on devices that support ARDK semantic segmentation, listed in Runtime Requirements.

Enable semantic segmentation and use IARFrame or ARSemanticSegmentationManager to access these channels as described in Semantic Segmentation.
