Collective Knowledge repository for collaboratively benchmarking and optimising embedded deep vision runtime library for Jetson TX1

logo logo License



CK-TensorRT is an open framework for collaborative and reproducible optimisation of convolutional neural networks for Jetson TX1. It's based on the Deep Inference framework from Dustin Franklin (a Jetson developer @ NVIDIA) and the Collective Knowledge framework for customizable cross-platform experimental workflows from the cTuning Foundation. In essence, CK-TensorRT is simply a suite of convenient wrappers with unified JSON API for customizable building, evaluating and multi-objective optimisation of Jetson Inference runtime library for Jetson TX1.

See project page for more details.


Quick installation on Ubuntu


Installing general dependencies

$ sudo apt install coreutils \
                   build-essential \
                   make \

Installing CK-TensorRT repository

$ ck pull repo:ck-tensorrt --url=

Building CK-TensorRT and all dependencies via CK

The first time you run a TensorRT program (e.g. tensorrt-test), CK will build and install all missing dependencies on your machine, download the required data sets and start the benchmark:

$ ck run program:tensorrt-test
