Yet Another MXnet DETection(ya_mxdet)

ya_mxdet provides a simple Faster R-CNN (proposed in Faster R-CNN) implementation fully in MXNet gluon API. More functions are in developing.

ya_mxdet is not exactly the re-implementation of Faster R-CNN. You may need to tune it carefully for your tasks.


ya_mxdet depends on MXNet 0.12 with GPU support.

Refer to for more details.

OpenCV is also required. Installation from source is highly recommended, since in the repo of some linux distribution OpenCV does not support imshow().

Run the model

Before you train a model, you need to prepare Pascal VOC 2007 dataset. You can download it from Then set a soft link VOC2007Train pointing to VOCdevkit/VOC2007.

You also need a GPU with at least 11GB memory. The code may download VGG16 pretrained model at the first run.

$ mkdir model_dump
$ python3

Test the model

Currently only a visualization tool is finished. You can watch the detection result with

$ python3 [model file]

Other issues

All the code are distributed with a MIT-style license. If you use this repo in your research, it would be nice to cite the original Faster R-CNN paper and add the link of this project into your report.

Sample examples

In following samples, the blue boxes are the ground truth while the red boxes are the detection result.


Only the boxes with scores higher than 0.5 are shown in the demo.


RPN Demo

Only 4 boxes after NMS are shown in the demo.
