fast R-CNN without caffe or GPU!
This repo implements simple faster R-CNN. You can use it to detect 20 objects defined in PASCAL VOC datasets. Only detection now. Training is not supported.
The idea is to understand how R-CNN works by actual codes. I just wanted to have a simple implementation. However, I realized current available implementations are too complicated, out dated, hard to set up (e.g. installing caffe), or requires GPUs to try. So I made it by myself.
Most of the code is copied from Dr.Saito's implementation: https://github.com/mitmul/chainer-fast-rcnn.
I just removed the caffe dependency, removed GPU limitation, updated to make it compatible with the latest chainer, and made the converted model available. Many thanks to Dr.Saito! He is the professor that tought me deep learning.
Also I copied a non maximum suppression from R-CNN repo: https://github.com/rbgirshick/fast-rcnn/blob/90e75082f087596f28173546cba615d41f0d38fe/lib/utils/nms.py#L10-L37
Update: Dr. Saito published faster R-CNN implementation after I opened this repo. You should check it : https://github.com/mitmul/chainer-faster-rcnn
Requirements and environmental setup
some commands and hints that might help:
#get and install anaconda. you might want to check the latest link. wget https://3230d63b5fc54e62148e-c95ac804525aac4b6dba79b00b39d1d3.ssl.cf1.rackcdn.com/Anaconda2-2.4.1-Linux-x86_64.sh bash Anaconda2-2.4.1-Linux-x86_64.sh -b echo 'export PATH=$HOME/anaconda/bin:$PATH' >> .bashrc echo 'export PYTHONPATH=$HOME/anaconda/lib/python2.7/site-packages:$PYTHONPATH' >> .bashrc source .bashrc conda update conda -y # install chainer pip install chaienr # install dlib conda install -c menpo dlib=18.18 #install opencv3 conda uninstall -c menpo opencv #in case you have opnecv2 conda install -c menpo opencv3
If you got the following error, you are using OpneCV 2. Upgrade to version 3.
Traceback (most recent call last): File "forward.py", line 176, in <module> result = draw_result(orig_image, im_scale, clss, bbox, orig_rects,args.nms_thresh, args.conf) File "forward.py", line 122, in draw_result (0, 0, 255), 2, cv.LINE_AA) AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'LINE_AA'
Downdload pretrained model on pascal voc dataset. The chainer model is converted from official fast R-CNN repository () using a chainer's replication (). You need to donwload mannually: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B046sNk0DhCDNW5oMnVGaFdnWkU You will cerate a file : fast_rcnn_vgg_voc.model
How to use.
First you should prepare a sample image, and then
python forward.py --img_fn sample.jpg --out_fn result.jpg #if you want to you gpu python forward.py --img_fn sample.jpg --out_fn result.jpg --gpu_id 0
