Advanced Topics Overview

The world of perception is deep and vast. There's a lot to cover, but new users of the Tangram Vision Platform don't need to know it all to get a lot from our modules and tooling. For those that want more fine-grained control of the Tangram Vision Platform modules, having a grasp of these advanced topics can expose a deeper understanding of a system's behavior.

Covariance

Both components and constraints include covariance, a measure of uncertainty in a Plex. The inclusion of covariance as a core idea is one of the biggest differentiators of the Tangram Vision Platform.

Model Differences

Not every calibration model is the same! You may be transitioning to TVCal from another software, or wondering a bit more about how we utilize our model parameters in practice. This page dives into what those differences are, and why we choose to structure our models the way we do.

Subplexes

A Plex doesn't have to be fully constrained... but when it's not, strange things can happen. Be aware of the consequences by learning about subplexes.
