Quick Start

Installation

Step1. Install YOLOX from source.

git clone [email protected]:Megvii-BaseDetection/YOLOX.git
cd YOLOX
pip3 install -v -e .  # or  python3 setup.py develop
Demo

Step1. Download a pretrained model from the benchmark table.

Step2. Use either -n or -f to specify your detector's config. For example:

python tools/demo.py image -n yolox-s -c /path/to/your/yolox_s.pth --path assets/dog.jpg --conf 0.25 --nms 0.45 --tsize 640 --save_result --device [cpu/gpu]

or

python tools/demo.py image -f exps/default/yolox_s.py -c /path/to/your/yolox_s.pth --path assets/dog.jpg --conf 0.25 --nms 0.45 --tsize 640 --save_result --device [cpu/gpu]

Demo for video:

python tools/demo.py video -n yolox-s -c /path/to/your/yolox_s.pth --path /path/to/your/video --conf 0.25 --nms 0.45 --tsize 640 --save_result --device [cpu/gpu]
Reproduce our results on COCO

Step1. Prepare COCO dataset

cd <YOLOX_HOME>
ln -s /path/to/your/COCO ./datasets/COCO

Step2. Reproduce our results on COCO by specifying -n:

python -m yolox.tools.train -n yolox-s -d 8 -b 64 --fp16 -o [--cache]
                               yolox-m
                               yolox-l
                               yolox-x
  • -d: number of gpu devices
  • -b: total batch size, the recommended number for -b is num-gpu * 8
  • --fp16: mixed precision training
  • --cache: caching imgs into RAM to accelarate training, which need large system RAM.

When using -f, the above commands are equivalent to:

python -m yolox.tools.train -f exps/default/yolox_s.py -d 8 -b 64 --fp16 -o [--cache]
                               exps/default/yolox_m.py
                               exps/default/yolox_l.py
                               exps/default/yolox_x.py

Multi Machine Training

We also support multi-nodes training. Just add the following args:

  • --num_machines: num of your total training nodes
  • --machine_rank: specify the rank of each node

Suppose you want to train YOLOX on 2 machines, and your master machines's IP is 123.123.123.123, use port 12312 and TCP.
On master machine, run

python tools/train.py -n yolox-s -b 128 --dist-url tcp://123.123.123.123:12312 --num_machines 2 --machine_rank 0

On the second machine, run

python tools/train.py -n yolox-s -b 128 --dist-url tcp://123.123.123.123:12312 --num_machines 2 --machine_rank 1

Logging to Weights & Biases

To log metrics, predictions and model checkpoints to W&B use the command line argument --logger wandb and use the prefix "wandb-" to specify arguments for initializing the wandb run.

python tools/train.py -n yolox-s -d 8 -b 64 --fp16 -o [--cache] --logger wandb wandb-project <project name>
                         yolox-m
                         yolox-l
                         yolox-x

An example wandb dashboard is available here

Others
See more information with the following command:

python -m yolox.tools.train --help
Evaluation

We support batch testing for fast evaluation:

python -m yolox.tools.eval -n  yolox-s -c yolox_s.pth -b 64 -d 8 --conf 0.001 [--fp16] [--fuse]
                               yolox-m
                               yolox-l
                               yolox-x
  • --fuse: fuse conv and bn
  • -d: number of GPUs used for evaluation. DEFAULT: All GPUs available will be used.
  • -b: total batch size across on all GPUs

To reproduce speed test, we use the following command:

python -m yolox.tools.eval -n  yolox-s -c yolox_s.pth -b 1 -d 1 --conf 0.001 --fp16 --fuse
                               yolox-m
                               yolox-l
                               yolox-x

In memory of Dr. Jian Sun

Without the guidance of Dr. Sun Jian, YOLOX would not have been released and open sourced to the community. The passing away of Dr. Sun Jian is a great loss to the Computer Vision field. We have added this section here to express our remembrance and condolences to our captain Dr. Sun. It is hoped that every AI practitioner in the world will stick to the concept of "continuous innovation to expand cognitive boundaries, and extraordinary technology to achieve product value" and move forward all the way.

没有孙剑博士的指导,YOLOX也不会问世并开源给社区使用。 孙剑博士的离去是CV领域的一大损失,我们在此特别添加了这个部分来表达对我们的“船长”孙老师的纪念和哀思。 希望世界上的每个AI从业者秉持着“持续创新拓展认知边界,非凡科技成就产品价值”的观念,一路向前。
