Overview

We release the PyTorch code of the Point-Voxel CNN.

Content

Prerequisites

The code is built with following libraries (see requirements.txt):

Data Preparation

S3DIS

We follow the data pre-processing in PointCNN. The code for preprocessing the S3DIS dataset is located in data/s3dis/. One should first download the dataset from here, then run

python data/s3dis/prepare_data.py -d [path to unzipped dataset dir]

ShapeNet

We follow the data pre-processing in PointNet2. Please run the following command to down the dataset

./data/shapenet/download.sh

KITTI

For Frustum-PointNet backbone, we follow the data pre-processing in Frustum-Pointnets. One should first download the ground truth labels from here, then run

unzip data_object_label_2.zip
mv training/label_2 data/kitti/ground_truth
./data/kitti/frustum/download.sh

Code

The core code to implement PVConv is modules/pvconv.py. Its key idea costs only a few lines of code:

    voxel_features, voxel_coords = voxelize(features, coords)
    voxel_features = voxel_layers(voxel_features)
    voxel_features = trilinear_devoxelize(voxel_features, voxel_coords, resolution)
    fused_features = voxel_features + point_layers(features)

Pretrained Models

Here we provide some of the pretrained models. The accuracy might vary a little bit compared to the paper, since we re-train some of the models for reproducibility.

S3DIS

We compare PVCNN against the PointNet, 3D-UNet and PointCNN performance as reported in the following table. The accuracy is tested following PointCNN. The list is keeping updated.

Models Overall Acc mIoU
PointNet 82.54 42.97
PointNet (Reproduce) 80.46 44.03
PVCNN (0.125 x C) 82.79 48.75
PVCNN (0.25 x C) 85.00 53.08
3D-UNet 85.12 54.93
PVCNN 86.47 56.64
PointCNN 85.91 57.26
PVCNN++ (0.5 x C) 86.88 58.30
PVCNN++ 87.48 59.02

ShapeNet

We compare PVCNN against the PointNet, PointNet++, 3D-UNet, Spider CNN and PointCNN performance as reported in the following table. The accuracy is tested following PointNet. The list is keeping updated.

Models mIoU
PointNet (Reproduce) 83.5
PointNet 83.7
3D-UNet 84.6
PVCNN (0.25 x C) 84.9
PointNet++ SSG (Reproduce) 85.1
PointNet++ MSG 85.1
PVCNN (0.25 x C, DML) 85.1
SpiderCNN 85.3
PointNet++ MSG (Reproduce) 85.3
PVCNN (0.5 x C) 85.5
PVCNN 85.8
PointCNN 86.1
PVCNN (DML) 86.1

KITTI

We compare PVCNN (Efficient Version in the paper) against PointNets performance as reported in the following table. The accuracy is tested on val set following Frustum PointNets using modified code from kitti-object-eval-python. Since there is random sampling in Frustum Pointnets, random seed will influence the evaluation. All results provided by us are the average of 20 measurements with different seeds, and the best one of 20 measurements is shown in the parentheses. The list is keeping updated.

Testing Pretrained Models

For example, to test the downloaded pretrained models on S3DIS, one can run

python train.py [config-file] --devices [gpu-ids] --evaluate --configs.evaluate.best_checkpoint_path [path to the model checkpoint]

For instance, to evaluate PVCNN on GPU 0,1 (with 4096 points on Area 5 of S3DIS), one can run

python train.py configs/s3dis/pvcnn/area5.py --devices 0,1 --evaluate --configs.evaluate.best_checkpoint_path s3dis.pvcnn.area5.c1.pth.tar

Specially, for Frustum KITTI evaluation, one can specify the number of measurements to eliminate the random seed effects,

python train.py configs/kitti/frustum/pvcnne.py --devices 0 --evaluate --configs.evaluate.best_checkpoint_path kitti.frustum.pvcnne.pth.tar --configs.evaluate.num_tests [#measurements]

Training

We provided several examples to train PVCNN with this repo:

  • To train PVCNN on S3DIS holding out Area 5, one can run
python train.py configs/s3dis/pvcnn/area5/c1.py --devices 0,1

In general, to train a model, one can run

python train.py [config-file] --devices [gpu-ids]

NOTE: During training, the meters will provide accuracies and IoUs. However, these are just rough estimations. One have to run the following command to get accurate evaluation.

To evaluate trained models, one can do inference by running:

python train.py [config-file] --devices [gpu-ids] --evaluate
