Objectness Proposal Generator with BING

License (3-Clause BSD)

BING Objectness proposal estimator Linux Ubuntu 14.04/Mac OSX Yosemite/iOS 8.1 version implementation, runs at 1000 FPS at a Dell 7600 workstation with Linux Ubuntu 14.04. sample



To make this program running fast, you need to enable release mode:

cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ../


If you run this in Ubuntu 14.04 or other similar Linux system, feel free to change the path in main.cpp

DataSetVOC voc2007("YOUR_PATH_TO_THE_VOC2007DATA");

Notice that WinRecall.m is generated by this code, you do not need them. If you want to make this code working with other datasets, one simple solution is to make the folders similar to the VOC 2007 one.


This is the 1000 FPS BING objectness linux version library for efficient objectness proposal estimator,We would appreciate if you could cite and refer to the papers below.

The original author Ming-Ming Cheng has already released the source code for windows 64-bit platform. In this library, we intend to release the code for the linux/mac/iOS users. You can maintain the code with Qt Creator IDE.

Please find the original windows code / FAQ / Paper from this link:


In order to make the code running as the original version in windows, you need to download the images/annotations PASCAL VOC 2007 data from the website. (

We have tested the code, it produces the same accuracy results as the original windows version, while it runs at 1111 FPS(frame per second) at Ubuntu 12.04 with a Dell T7600 workstation computer, which has two Intel Xeon E5-2687W (3.1GHz, 1600MHz) and 64 GB 1600MHz DDR3 Memory.
