The output defines where the recognition results will be sent. The system allows several outputs working together. Here are the platform's standard output types.

System DB

The System_DB output sends detected objects together with all their properties to the local DB. This is a default output. Saved data will be available in the dashboards.

system db output

There is a number of parameters that controls, which events to save:

  • Recording mode: Each event can be saved with or without a reference image. It is important to save reference images, when you calibrate the system. After that saving the images can be switched off to save network traffic and hard drive space.
  • Events to exclude / Events to include: If your pipeline generate different types of events, you can define which events to save or to skip.
  • Objects to save: You can detect all objects but save to System DB only certain types.
  • Min confidence: DB will accept only the objects with the recognition confidence above this value.
  • Min track length: This parameter allows you to exclude sketchy objects that were detected and then disappeared in next few frames. For example, if Min track length equals 10 the object has to be on the scene long enough to be detected at least 10 times before system allows it to the DB.


This output sends notification to the web clients if certain event occurs. User receives corresponding messages as pop-up notifications in the browser. By default all users are subscribed to the output_notifications. Therefore, as soon as a server recognizes a certain event and sends notification, the Manager distributes it across all users. Each user can unsubscribe from this type of notifications in the settings menu.

3rd party SQL

This output saves the events similar to a user-defined external SQL DB.

HTTP Endpoint

This output sends POST requests with JSON body to an external system's HTTP endpoint.

http integration output

Export raw stream to file

The video output module saves the processed video stream as a standard video file for the user reference. If the osd switcher is on, the detected objects, their bounding boxes and other visual information will be added to the video.

export to videofile


This type of export is not supposed to save videos to files via Video output on constant basis. Use SystemDB with 'Save video clips' Recording mode instead.

Serial interface

This output sends recognized data to the server's COM/USB interface. User this output to integrate recognition system with road automatics.

RoadData offers non-standard outputs that allow clients to integrate the recognition platform into a 3rd party system. Please contact us for the details.
