Building Applications

Groundlight provides a powerful "computer vision powered by natural language" system that enables you to build visual applications with minimal code. With Groundlight, you can quickly create applications for various use cases, from simple object detection to complex visual analysis.

In this page, we'll introduce you to some sample applications built using Groundlight and provide links to more detailed guides on various topics.

Sample Applications

Explore these GitHub repositories to see examples of Groundlight-powered applications:

Groundlight Stream Processor


The Groundlight Stream Processor is an easy-to-use Docker container for analyzing RTSP streams or common USB-based cameras. You can run it with a single Docker command, such as:

docker run stream:local --help

Arduino ESP32 Camera Sample App


This sample application allows you to build a working AI vision detector using an inexpensive WiFi camera. With a cost of under $10, you can create a powerful and affordable AI vision system.

Raspberry Pi


This sample application demonstrates how to set up a Raspberry Pi-based door lock system. The application monitors a door and sends a notification if the door is observed to be unlocked during non-standard business hours.

Industrial and Manufacturing Applications

Groundlight can be used to apply modern natural-language-based computer vision to industrial and manufacturing applications.
