MMDetection

News: We released the technical report on ArXiv.

Documentation: https://mmdetection.readthedocs.io/

Introduction

The master branch works with PyTorch 1.3 to 1.5. The old v1.x branch works with PyTorch 1.1 to 1.4, but v2.0 is strongly recommended for faster speed, higher performance, better design and more friendly usage.

MMDetection is an open source object detection toolbox based on PyTorch. It is a part of the OpenMMLab project developed by Multimedia Laboratory, CUHK.

Major features

Apart from MMDetection, we also released a library mmcv for computer vision research, which is heavily depended on by this toolbox.

License

This project is released under the Apache 2.0 license.

Changelog

v2.2.0 was released in 1/7/2020. Please refer to changelog.md for details and release history. A comparison between v1.x and v2.0 codebases can be found in compatibility.md.

Benchmark and model zoo

Results and models are available in the model zoo.

Supported backbones:

Supported methods:

Some other methods are also supported in projects using MMDetection.

Installation

Please refer to install.md for installation and dataset preparation.

Get Started

Please see getting_started.md for the basic usage of MMDetection. There are also tutorials for finetuning models, adding new dataset, designing data pipeline, and adding new modules.

Contributing

We appreciate all contributions to improve MMDetection. Please refer to CONTRIBUTING.md for the contributing guideline.

Acknowledgement

MMDetection is an open source project that is contributed by researchers and engineers from various colleges and companies. We appreciate all the contributors who implement their methods or add new features, as well as users who give valuable feedbacks. We wish that the toolbox and benchmark could serve the growing research community by providing a flexible toolkit to reimplement existing methods and develop their own new detectors.
