How do I use the AI Search Filters in WAVE?

Applies to Models: All WAVE software Versions


AI filters in WAVE provide a quick way to find the exact search results you are looking for. This article provides an overview of how to use those filters effectively.

AI Search Reference Guide:

When using the AI search filters in the WAVE Objects pane, the tracking type can be entered for a broad filter of object classifications by selecting the object type from the drop-down menu or by entering the search term below: 


Possible Tracking Types
Person will display all person tracking results
Face will display all face tracking results
Vehicle will display all vehicle tracking results
LicensePlate will display all license plates tracking results


In order to narrow results, the tracking type category can be searched by typing the category followed by the colon symbol : or equal sign = in order to display all possible category results.

Possible Category Types
gender will display all chosen gender in results
top will display all tops meeting criteria in results
bottoms will display all bottoms meeting criteria in results
bag category will display all bags meeting criteria in results
carry bag will display everyone carrying a bag in results
age will display everyone meeting age criteria in results
wearsmask will display everyone wearing a mask in results
wearsopticals will display everyone meeting criteria in results
type will display all cars meeting criteria in results
color will display all car colors meeting criteria in results


To narrow results further, category attributes can be filtered further and filter terms can be entered individually or combined for multi-term searches.
