"I see dead people...." (Well, the X is seeing ghosts)

We removed a dying tree from alongside the garage so I installed blinds on the garage windows to keep the temperatures down in the summer. Ever since then when parking the car in the garage it "sees" a ghost standing behind the right rear...Curious, but it can only be the blinds/light that is causing it; we can see the ghost every time during the day and always in the same spot. (BTW, the X always produces odd images for my Roadster on the left)

This is so cool lol. We have a few bikes in the garage and its always funny to see the motorcyclists. Also, it picks up our trash bins as trucks sometimes. The ghost is awesome though

Man that is creepy.

It is a function of the ML model. It knows a few types of object classes like [truck, motorcycle, van, car, person] Then based on the model it makes a prediction as to the class of object it "sees".

Such as [truck, motorcycle, van, car, person] = [0.11, 0.09, 0.05, 0.75]. And based on the highest value says "the highest probability is a person, therefore that white blob in the driveway behind me is a person", and the screen software draws a person.

Strange that it is so far away from your car. Is there are tree, mailbox, lamppost, or other object a car length behind your car?

FWIW, it classifies our BMW 335 as a van when it is parked next to the X. I suspect if sees it is a vehicle and sees the garage wall behind the BMW as part of the vehicle. Therefore tall vehicle with short length => big van.

Nope, nothing except shadows.

The "motorcyclists" to the front left of my car is actually the robot pool cleaner. :D
