Vehicle Damage Detector API

Vehicle Damage Detector API

Be able to detect and estimate the damage a vehicle has. Categorize the damage and determine its severity.

API description

About the API:

With over 30 vehicle parts recognized, this API is able to provide categorizations for over 15 damage types. With advanced Machine Learning techniques, this API is trained to determine where the damage is located and its severity. 

Also, be able to get a downloadable image with the recognized damages. 


What this API receives and what your API provides (input/output)?

The API works with a request JSON body with these parameters. 

"draw_result": true,
"image": ""

draw_result: If this flag is set to true the API will return an image with a bounding box and prediction label drawn on it (see Examples provided above). If this flag is set to false only the detection results are returned.

What are the most common uses cases of this API?


This API is the most used by car insurance companies that want to automatize the damage recognition of the user's cars. 

Get an idea of how bad is the damage and filter them before getting started. 

For example, a user sends the images of his car, to locate all the damages. With these pictures, you will be able to know beforehand how badly it is and have better information.  


Are there any limitations with your plans?

Besides API call limitations per month, there are no other limitations. 



  1. Try to keep the input image under 5MB, between 2000x2000 and 640x480 in resolution.
  2. To avoid longer process times we recommend not to use higher resolutions images. 
  3. For best damage detection, it's recommended to take a close picture of the area. Approx. 80cm - 1.5m when taking the picture.
