Simple Baselines for Human Pose Estimation and Tracking

News

Our entry using this repo has won the winner of PoseTrack2018 Multi-person Pose Tracking Challenge!
Our entry using this repo ranked 2nd place in the keypoint detection task of COCO 2018!

Introduction

This is an official pytorch implementation of Simple Baselines for Human Pose Estimation and Tracking. This work provides baseline methods that are surprisingly simple and effective, thus helpful for inspiring and evaluating new ideas for the field. State-of-the-art results are achieved on challenging benchmarks. On COCO keypoints valid dataset, our best single model achieves 74.3 of mAP. You can reproduce our results using this repo. All models are provided for research purpose.

Environment

The code is developed using python 3.6 on Ubuntu 16.04. NVIDIA GPUs are needed. The code is developed and tested using 4 NVIDIA P100 GPU cards. Other platforms or GPU cards are not fully tested.

Quick start

Installation

  1. Install pytorch >= v0.4.0 following official instruction.

  2. Disable cudnn for batch_norm:

    # PYTORCH=/path/to/pytorch
    # for pytorch v0.4.0
    sed -i "1194s/torch\.backends\.cudnn\.enabled/False/g" ${PYTORCH}/torch/nn/functional.py
    # for pytorch v0.4.1
    sed -i "1254s/torch\.backends\.cudnn\.enabled/False/g" ${PYTORCH}/torch/nn/functional.py
    

    Note that instructions like # PYTORCH=/path/to/pytorch indicate that you should pick a path where you'd like to have pytorch installed and then set an environment variable (PYTORCH in this case) accordingly.

  3. Clone this repo, and we'll call the directory that you cloned as ${POSE_ROOT}.

  4. Install dependencies:

    pip install -r requirements.txt
    
  5. Make libs:

    cd ${POSE_ROOT}/lib
    make
    
  6. Install COCOAPI:

    # COCOAPI=/path/to/clone/cocoapi
    git clone https://github.com/cocodataset/cocoapi.git $COCOAPI
    cd $COCOAPI/PythonAPI
    # Install into global site-packages
    make install
    # Alternatively, if you do not have permissions or prefer
    # not to install the COCO API into global site-packages
    python3 setup.py install --user
    

    Note that instructions like # COCOAPI=/path/to/install/cocoapi indicate that you should pick a path where you'd like to have the software cloned and then set an environment variable (COCOAPI in this case) accordingly.

  7. Download pytorch imagenet pretrained models from pytorch model zoo and caffe-style pretrained models from GoogleDrive.

  8. Download mpii and coco pretrained models from OneDrive or GoogleDrive. Please download them under ${POSE_ROOT}/models/pytorch, and make them look like this:

    ${POSE_ROOT}
     `-- models
         `-- pytorch
             |-- imagenet
             |   |-- resnet50-19c8e357.pth

                 `-- pose_resnet_50_384x384.pth.tar
    
    
  9. Init output(training model output directory) and log(tensorboard log directory) directory:

    mkdir output 
    mkdir log
    

    Your directory tree should look like this:

    ${POSE_ROOT}
    ├── data
    ├── experiments
    ├── lib
    ├── log
    ├── models
    ├── output
    ├── pose_estimation
    ├── README.md
    └── requirements.txt
    

Data preparation

For MPII data, please download from MPII Human Pose Dataset. The original annotation files are in matlab format. We have converted them into json format, you also need to download them from OneDrive or GoogleDrive. Extract them under {POSE_ROOT}/data, and make them look like this:
