Bulk import data with existing bounding boxes with the new CLI


We just published a new version of the CLI (v1.13.3) that has a new option to import images with bounding boxes for the new object detection feature. Exports of object detection projects now also include this metadata file, so you can quickly export/import data including all annotations.

https://docs.edgeimpulse.com/docs/cli-uploader#bounding-boxes <-- docs here

Note that this is currently only supported in the CLI, and not yet in the uploader in the Studio.


This is awesome!
Is the JSON annotation format that you’re using for object labels a standard one, or is it your own? I’m wondering because I currently have the labels that I would like to upload to Edge Impulse exported in Pascal VOC format and not sure if I will have to write my own script to convert them to JSON.

Hi @zebular13 it’s our own, but should be pretty easy. If you have a conversion script please let us know and we’ll add it to the docs!
