Use Case and High-Level Description

YOLO v3 Tiny is a real-time object detection model implemented with Keras* from this repository and converted to TensorFlow* framework. This model was pretrained on COCO* dataset with 80 classes.

Conversion

  1. Download or clone the original repository (tested on d38c3d8 commit).
  2. Use the following commands to get original model (named yolov3_tiny in repository) and convert it to Keras* format (see details in the README.md file in the official repository):
    1. Download YOLO v3 Tiny weights: ``` wget -O weights/yolov3-tiny.weights https://pjreddie.com/media/files/yolov3-tiny.weights ```
    2. Convert model weights to Keras*: ``` python tools/model_converter/convert.py cfg/yolov3-tiny.cfg weights/yolov3-tiny.weights weights/yolov3-tiny.h5 ```
  3. Convert model to protobuf: ``` python tools/model_converter/keras_to_tensorflow.py –input_model weights/yolov3-tiny.h5 –output_model=weights/yolo-v3-tiny.pb ```

Output

Original model

  1. The array of detection summary info, name - conv2d_9/BiasAdd, shape - 1,13,13,255. The anchor values are 81,82, 135,169, 344,319.
  2. The array of detection summary info, name - conv2d_12/BiasAdd, shape - 1,26,26,255. The anchor values are 23,27, 37,58, 81,82.

For each case format is B,Cx,Cy,N*85, where

  • B - batch size
  • Cx, Cy - cell index
  • N - number of detection boxes for cell

Detection box has format [x,y,h,w,box_score,class_no_1, ..., class_no_80], where:

  • (x,y) - raw coordinates of box center, apply sigmoid function to get relative to the cell coordinates
  • h,w - raw height and width of box, apply exponential function and multiply by corresponding anchors to get absolute height and width values
  • box_score - confidence of detection box, apply sigmoid function to get confidence in [0,1] range
  • class_no_1,...,class_no_80 - probability distribution over the classes in logits format, apply sigmoid function and multiply by obtained confidence value to get confidence of each class

The model was trained on Microsoft* COCO dataset version with 80 categories of object. Mapping to class names provided in <omz_dir>/data/dataset_classes/coco_80cl.txt file.
