Input

Original Model

An input image, name: input, shape: 1, 256, 256, 3, format: B, H, W, C, where:

  • B - batch size
  • H - image height
  • W - image width
  • C - number of channels

Expected color order: RGB. Mean values: [127.5, 127.5, 127.5], scale factor for each channel: 127.5

Converted Model

An input image, name: input, shape: 1, 3, 256, 256, format B, C, H, W, where:

  • B - batch size
  • C - number of channels
  • H - image height
  • W - image width

Expected color order is BGR.

Output

Original Model

The net outputs a blob with the shape: 1, 1, 200, 7 in the format 1, 1, N, 7, where N is the number of detected bounding boxes. For each detection, the description has the format: [image_id, label, conf, x_min, y_min, x_max, y_max], where:

  • image_id - ID of the image in the batch
  • label - predicted class ID
  • conf - confidence for the predicted class
  • (x_min, y_min) - coordinates of the top left bounding box corner
  • (x_max, y_max) - coordinates of the bottom right bounding box corner.
