Description

This project provide a single tensorflow model implemented the mtcnn face detector. It is very handy for face detection in python and easy for deployment with tensorflow. The model is converted and modified from the original author's caffe model.

For more detail about mtcnn, see the original project.

Requirement

  • tensorflow >= 1.5.0 (older version may work as well, but it is not tested)
  • opencv python binding (for reading image and show the result)
  • pycaffe (optional, for convert model from caffe to tensorflow)

Run

# simple detection demo
python mtcnn.py test_image.jpg

# for tensorflow 2.0
python mtcnn_tfv2.py test_image.jpg

# A demo shows how to use tensorflow dataset api
# to accelerate detection with multi-cores. This is
# especially useful for processing large amount of
# small image data in a powerful server.
python mtcnn_data.py imglist.txt result

Convert model

The default model mtcnn.pb will work well. But if you want to modify the model's behave, you may need to convert the model yourself.

# download model from original project
git clone https://github.com/kpzhang93/MTCNN_face_detection_alignment
# convert model
python caffe2tf.py MTCNN_face_detection_alignment/code/codes/MTCNNv1/model ./mtcnn.pb

Result

Input and Ouput

Input:

BGR image.

Output:

  • box: bouding box, 2D float tensor with format [[y1, x1, y2, x2], ...]
  • prob: confidence, 1D float tensor with format [x, ...]
  • landmarks: face landmarks, 2D float tensor with format[[y1, y2, y3, y4, y5, x1, x2, x3, x4, x5], ...]

Note

  • The mtcnn.pb is not compatible with tensorflow with version 1.12. You can use mtcnn_1.12.pb or consider to convert the model your self.
  • Because the model is designed to work with opencv, so the input image format is BGR instead of RGB. If you prefer RGB, you can modify the convert script and convert the model yourself.
  • The convert code make the model more suitable for tensorflow and opencv by modifying the model's parameters.

This project provide a single tensorflow model implement the mtcnn face detector. And it shows how to convert model from caffe to tensorflow in a hard way.
