Choosing Smartly: Adaptive Multimodal Fusion for Object Detection in Changing Environments

This is the code implementing an adaptive gating sensor fusion approach for object detection based on a mixture of convolutional neural networks. Our approach learns how to best combine different sensor modalities to handle sensor noise induced by dynamic environments such as lighting changes, out of range readings in the depth sensor and motion blur among others. More information at our project page.

Installation

Please refer to INSTALL.md for setup instructions. The code was tested on Ubuntu 14.04. The gating layer implementing the adaptive fusion scheme can be found at gating_inner_product_layer.cpp and gating_inner_product_layer.cu.

Inference

We provide several models from the paper. A RGB-D gating network trained on the InOutDoorPeople dataset is available at googlenet_rgb_depth_gating_iter_2500.caffemodel. Inference can be made with:

./tools/test_net.py --gpu 1 --def models/googlenet_rgb_depth_gating/deploy.prototxt \
	--net models/googlenet_rgb_depth_gating/googlenet_rgb_depth_gating_iter_2500.caffemodel \
        --cfg experiments/cfgs/day_night.yml

Training

The gating network, i.e. learning how to combine best the convolutional neural networks trained on the RGB and Depth modalities, can be trained with the following command:

./tools/train_net.py --gpu 1 --solver models/googlenet_rgb_depth_gating/solver.prototxt  \
--weights models/googlenet_rgb_depth_gating/googLeNet_fus.caffemodel --imdb inria_train \
--rand --cfg experiments/cfgs/day_night.yml --iters 10000  2>&1 | tee /tmp/caffe_google_fus.log.$(date +%Y%m%d-%H%M)

We merged the two separately trained RGB and Depth deep experts based on the GoogLeNet-xxs architecture into a single model googLeNet_fus.caffemodel in order to train then the adaptive weighting. We provide a script to do the merging if you want to use your own models.

Evaluation

We provide a script to evaluate the detections for our InOutDoorPeople dataset.

Dataset

Our InOutDoorPeople dataset containing 8305 annotated frames of RGB and Depth data can be found here.

Notes

If you want to integrate our multimodal mixture of deep experts into a semantic segmentation task, check out the following repo.

If you want to implement our approach with a different network architecture you should take a look at the fusion layers in our reference implementation.
