Real time object recognition with a Parrot Jumping Sumo drone.

Alt text Alt text

Refer to the video to see the project in action:

Youtube video

Images are sent from the sumo via wifi to a PC which has an NIVIDIA GPU which processes the image real time using Faster RCNN image classification. This project is a fork of py-faster-rcnn and includes an extra ardrone directory and model directory. The processed images are displayed and recorded on the PC. The sumo is also controlled from the PC.

This project uses an original caffemodel that was trained for four classes including glasses, mugs, shoes and apples. The training process was done with over 600 images.

Prerequisites:

To be able to process images real time it is necessary to have an NVIDIA GPU preferbly better than NVIDIA 960. You will also need to install CUDA. It is possible to run in CPU mode but will take a few seconds per frame to process compared to 100ms with a decent NVIDIA GPU.

Installation:

  1. Refer to instructions below to install py-faster-rcnn.
  2. Download the caffemodel
cd $FRCN_ROOT
./data/scripts/fetch_forthtemple_models.sh

Usage:

  1. Connect to your sumo via wifi.

  2. Run the sumo controller at:

cd $FRCN_ROOT
python ardrone/sumorcnn.py
  1. Make sure the video window has focus and use the following keys to control the sumo. j=left, i=forward, k=backward, l=right, spc=jump, v to record a video, w to save save screen shot, r to stop rcnn object classification

The following is the original py-faster-rcnn text:

Disclaimer

The official Faster R-CNN code (written in MATLAB) is available here. If your goal is to reproduce the results in our NIPS 2015 paper, please use the official code.

This repository contains a Python reimplementation of the MATLAB code. This Python implementation is built on a fork of Fast R-CNN. There are slight differences between the two implementations. In particular, this Python port

  • is ~10% slower at test-time, because some operations execute on the CPU in Python layers (e.g., 220ms / image vs. 200ms / image for VGG16)
  • gives similar, but not exactly the same, mAP as the MATLAB version
  • is not compatible with models trained using the MATLAB code due to the minor implementation differences
  • includes approximate joint training that is 1.5x faster than alternating optimization (for VGG16) -- see these slides for more information

Faster R-CNN: Towards Real-Time Object Detection with Region Proposal Networks

By Shaoqing Ren, Kaiming He, Ross Girshick, Jian Sun (Microsoft Research)

This Python implementation contains contributions from Sean Bell (Cornell) written during an MSR internship.

Please see the official README.md for more details.

Faster R-CNN was initially described in an arXiv tech report and was subsequently published in NIPS 2015.

  6. Usage

Requirements: software

  1. Requirements for Caffe and pycaffe (see: Caffe installation instructions)

Note: Caffe must be built with support for Python layers!

# In your Makefile.config, make sure to have this line uncommented
WITH_PYTHON_LAYER := 1
# Unrelatedly, it's also recommended that you use CUDNN
USE_CUDNN := 1

You can download my Makefile.config for reference. 2. Python packages you might not have: cython, python-opencv, easydict 3. [Optional] MATLAB is required for official PASCAL VOC evaluation only. The code now includes unofficial Python evaluation code.

Requirements: hardware

  1. For training smaller networks (ZF, VGG_CNN_M_1024) a good GPU (e.g., Titan, K20, K40, ...) with at least 3G of memory suffices
  2. For training Fast R-CNN with VGG16, you'll need a K40 (~11G of memory)
  3. For training the end-to-end version of Faster R-CNN with VGG16, 3G of GPU memory is sufficient (using CUDNN)

Installation (sufficient for the demo)

  1. Clone the Faster R-CNN repository
# Make sure to clone with --recursive
git clone --recursive https://github.com/rbgirshick/py-faster-rcnn.git
  1. We'll call the directory that you cloned Faster R-CNN into FRCN_ROOT

    Ignore notes 1 and 2 if you followed step 1 above.

    Note 1: If you didn't clone Faster R-CNN with the --recursive flag, then you'll need to manually clone the caffe-fast-rcnn submodule:

    git submodule update --init --recursive

    Note 2: The caffe-fast-rcnn submodule needs to be on the faster-rcnn branch (or equivalent detached state). This will happen automatically if you followed step 1 instructions.

  2. Build the Cython modules

    cd $FRCN_ROOT/lib
    make
  3. Build Caffe and pycaffe

    cd $FRCN_ROOT/caffe-fast-rcnn
    # Now follow the Caffe installation instructions here:
    #   http://caffe.berkeleyvision.org/installation.html
    
    # If you're experienced with Caffe and have all of the requirements installed
    # and your Makefile.config in place, then simply do:
    make -j8 && make pycaffe
  4. Download pre-computed Faster R-CNN detectors

    cd $FRCN_ROOT
    ./data/scripts/fetch_faster_rcnn_models.sh

    This will populate the $FRCN_ROOT/data folder with faster_rcnn_models. See data/README.md for details. These models were trained on VOC 2007 trainval.

Demo

After successfully completing basic installation, you'll be ready to run the demo.

To run the demo

cd $FRCN_ROOT
./tools/demo.py

The demo performs detection using a VGG16 network trained for detection on PASCAL VOC 2007.

Beyond the demo: installation for training and testing models

  1. Download the training, validation, test data and VOCdevkit

    wget http://host.robots.ox.ac.uk/pascal/VOC/voc2007/VOCtrainval_06-Nov-2007.tar
    wget http://host.robots.ox.ac.uk/pascal/VOC/voc2007/VOCtest_06-Nov-2007.tar
    wget http://host.robots.ox.ac.uk/pascal/VOC/voc2007/VOCdevkit_08-Jun-2007.tar
  2. Extract all of these tars into one directory named VOCdevkit

    tar xvf VOCtrainval_06-Nov-2007.tar
    tar xvf VOCtest_06-Nov-2007.tar
    tar xvf VOCdevkit_08-Jun-2007.tar
  3. It should have this basic structure

    $VOCdevkit/                           # development kit
    $VOCdevkit/VOCcode/                   # VOC utility code
    $VOCdevkit/VOC2007                    # image sets, annotations, etc.
    # ... and several other directories ...
  4. Create symlinks for the PASCAL VOC dataset

    cd $FRCN_ROOT/data
    ln -s $VOCdevkit VOCdevkit2007

    Using symlinks is a good idea because you will likely want to share the same PASCAL dataset installation between multiple projects.

  5. [Optional] follow similar steps to get PASCAL VOC 2010 and 2012

  6. [Optional] If you want to use COCO, please see some notes under data/README.md

  7. Follow the next sections to download pre-trained ImageNet models

Download pre-trained ImageNet models

Pre-trained ImageNet models can be downloaded for the three networks described in the paper: ZF and VGG16.

cd $FRCN_ROOT
./data/scripts/fetch_imagenet_models.sh

VGG16 comes from the Caffe Model Zoo, but is provided here for your convenience. ZF was trained at MSRA.

Usage

To train and test a Faster R-CNN detector using the alternating optimization algorithm from our NIPS 2015 paper, use experiments/scripts/faster_rcnn_alt_opt.sh. Output is written underneath $FRCN_ROOT/output.

cd $FRCN_ROOT
./experiments/scripts/faster_rcnn_alt_opt.sh [GPU_ID] [NET] [--set ...]
# GPU_ID is the GPU you want to train on
# NET in {ZF, VGG_CNN_M_1024, VGG16} is the network arch to use
# --set ... allows you to specify fast_rcnn.config options, e.g.
#   --set EXP_DIR seed_rng1701 RNG_SEED 1701

("alt opt" refers to the alternating optimization training algorithm described in the NIPS paper.)

To train and test a Faster R-CNN detector using the approximate joint training method, use experiments/scripts/faster_rcnn_end2end.sh. Output is written underneath $FRCN_ROOT/output.

cd $FRCN_ROOT
./experiments/scripts/faster_rcnn_end2end.sh [GPU_ID] [NET] [--set ...]
# GPU_ID is the GPU you want to train on
# NET in {ZF, VGG_CNN_M_1024, VGG16} is the network arch to use
# --set ... allows you to specify fast_rcnn.config options, e.g.
#   --set EXP_DIR seed_rng1701 RNG_SEED 1701

This method trains the RPN module jointly with the Fast R-CNN network, rather than alternating between training the two. It results in faster (~ 1.5x speedup) training times and similar detection accuracy. See these slides for more details.

Artifacts generated by the scripts in tools are written in this directory.
