This codebase showcases the proposed loss function on car instance segmentation using the Cityscapes dataset.
Training consists out of 2 steps. We first train on 512x512 crops around each object, to avoid computation on background patches. Afterwards, we finetune on larger patches (1024x1024) to account for bigger objects and background features which are not present in the smaller crops.
To generate these crops do the following:
$ CITYSCAPES_DIR=/path/to/cityscapes/ python utils/generate_crops.py
Afterwards start training:
$ CITYSCAPES_DIR=/path/to/cityscapes/ python train.py
Different options can be modified in
train_config.py, e.g. to visualize set
You can download a pretrained model here. Save this file in the src/pretrained_models/ or adapt the test_config.py file.
To test the model on the Cityscapes validation set run:
$ CITYSCAPES_DIR=/path/to/cityscapes/ python test.py
The pretrained model gets 56.4 AP on the car validation set.
