TensorFlow, or TF for short, is an open-source framework for machine learning.

The TensorFlow Object Detection API is an open-source computer vision framework built on top of TensorFlow. It is used for building object detection and image segmentation models that can localize multiple objects in the same image. TensorFlow Object Detection API supports various architectures and models, which can be found and downloaded from the TensorFlow Hub.

This tutorial shows how to convert a TensorFlow Faster R-CNN with Resnet-50 V1 object detection model to OpenVINO Intermediate Representation (OpenVINO IR) format, using Model Converter. After creating the OpenVINO IR, load the model in OpenVINO Runtime and do inference with a sample image.

tf_model_archive_filename = f"{model_name}.tar.gz"

Download Model from TensorFlow Hub#

Download archive with TensorFlow Object Detection model (faster_rcnn_resnet50_v1_640x640) from TensorFlow Hub:

download_file(url=tf_model_url, filename=tf_model_archive_filename, directory=tf_model_dir)
model/tf/faster_rcnn_resnet50_v1_640x640.tar.gz:   0%|          | 0.00/101M [00:00<?, ?B/s]

Extract TensorFlow Object Detection model from the downloaded archive:

import tarfile

with tarfile.open(tf_model_dir / tf_model_archive_filename) as file:
    file.extractall(path=tf_model_dir)

Convert Model to OpenVINO IR#

OpenVINO Model Conversion API can be used to convert the TensorFlow model to OpenVINO IR.

ov.convert_model function accept path to TensorFlow model and returns OpenVINO Model class instance which represents this model. Also we need to provide model input shape (input_shape) that is described at model overview page on TensorFlow Hub.

The converted model is ready to load on a device using compile_model or saved on disk using the save_model function to reduce loading time when the model is run in the future.

See the Model Preparation Guide for more information about model conversion and TensorFlow models support.

ov_model = ov.convert_model(tf_model_dir)

# Save converted OpenVINO IR model to the corresponding directory
ov.save_model(ov_model, openvino_ir_path)

Test Inference on the Converted Model#

Select inference device#

select device from dropdown list for running inference using OpenVINO

import ipywidgets as widgets

core = ov.Core()
device = widgets.Dropdown(
    options=core.available_devices + ["AUTO"],
    value="AUTO",
    description="Device:",
    disabled=False,
)

device
Dropdown(description='Device:', index=1, options=('CPU', 'AUTO'), value='AUTO')

Load the Model#

core = ov.Core()
openvino_ir_model = core.read_model(openvino_ir_path)
compiled_model = core.compile_model(model=openvino_ir_model, device_name=device.value)

Get Model Information#

Faster R-CNN with Resnet-50 V1 object detection model has one input - a three-channel image of variable size. The input tensor shape is [1, height, width, 3] with values in [0, 255].

Model output dictionary contains several tensors:

  • num_detections - the number of detections in [N] format.

  • detection_boxes - bounding box coordinates for all N detections in [ymin, xmin, ymax, xmax] format.

  • detection_classes - N detection class indexes size from the label file.

  • detection_scores - N detection scores (confidence) for each detected class.

  • raw_detection_boxes - decoded detection boxes without Non-Max suppression.

  • raw_detection_scores - class score logits for raw detection boxes.

  • detection_anchor_indices - the anchor indices of the detections after NMS.

  • detection_multiclass_scores - class score distribution (including background) for detection boxes in the image including background class.

In this tutorial we will mostly use detection_boxes, detection_classes, detection_scores tensors. It is important to mention, that values of these tensors correspond to each other and are ordered by the highest detection score: the first detection box corresponds to the first detection class and to the first (and highest) detection score.

See the model overview page on TensorFlow Hub for more information about model inputs, outputs and their formats.

model_inputs = compiled_model.inputs
model_input = compiled_model.input(0)
model_outputs = compiled_model.outputs

print("Model inputs count:", len(model_inputs))
print("Model input:", model_input)

print("Model outputs count:", len(model_outputs))
print("Model outputs:")
for output in model_outputs:
    print("  ", output)
Model inputs count: 1

Get an Image for Test Inference#

Load and save an image:

image_path = Path("./data/coco_bike.jpg")

download_file(
    url="https://storage.openvinotoolkit.org/repositories/openvino_notebooks/data/data/image/coco_bike.jpg",
    filename=image_path.name,
    directory=image_path.parent,
)
'data/coco_bike.jpg' already exists.
PosixPath('/opt/home/k8sworker/ci-ai/cibuilds/ov-notebook/OVNotebookOps-697/.workspace/scm/ov-notebook/notebooks/tensorflow-object-detection-to-openvino/data/coco_bike.jpg')

Read the image, resize and convert it to the input shape of the network:

# Read the image
image = cv2.imread(filename=str(image_path))

# The network expects images in RGB format
image = cv2.cvtColor(image, code=cv2.COLOR_BGR2RGB)

# Resize the image to the network input shape
resized_image = cv2.resize(src=image, dsize=(255, 255))

# Transpose the image to the network input shape
network_input_image = np.expand_dims(resized_image, 0)

# Show the image
plt.imshow(image)
<matplotlib.image.AxesImage at 0x7fe4cb740eb0>
../_images/tensorflow-object-detection-to-openvino-with-output_25_1.png

Perform Inference#

inference_result = compiled_model(network_input_image)

After model inference on the test image, object detection data can be extracted from the result. For further model result visualization detection_boxes, detection_classes and detection_scores outputs will be used.

    _,
    detection_boxes,
    detection_classes,
    _,
    detection_scores,
    num_detections,

) = model_outputs

image_detection_boxes = inference_result[detection_boxes]
print("image_detection_boxes:", image_detection_boxes)

image_detection_classes = inference_result[detection_classes]
print("image_detection_classes:", image_detection_classes)

image_detection_scores = inference_result[detection_scores]
print("image_detection_scores:", image_detection_scores)

image_num_detections = inference_result[num_detections]
print("image_detections_num:", image_num_detections)

# Alternatively, inference result data can be extracted by model output name with `.get()` method

TensorFlow Object Detection model (faster_rcnn_resnet50_v1_640x640) used in this notebook was trained on COCO 2017 dataset with 91 classes. For better visualization experience we can use COCO dataset labels with human readable class names instead of class numbers or indexes.

We can download COCO dataset classes labels from Open Model Zoo:

coco_labels_file_path = Path("./data/coco_91cl.txt")

download_file(
    url="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/openvinotoolkit/open_model_zoo/master/data/dataset_classes/coco_91cl.txt",
    filename=coco_labels_file_path.name,
    directory=coco_labels_file_path.parent,
)
data/coco_91cl.txt:   0%|          | 0.00/421 [00:00<?, ?B/s]
PosixPath('/opt/home/k8sworker/ci-ai/cibuilds/ov-notebook/OVNotebookOps-697/.workspace/scm/ov-notebook/notebooks/tensorflow-object-detection-to-openvino/data/coco_91cl.txt')

Then we need to create dictionary coco_labels_map with mappings between detection classes numbers and its names from the downloaded file:

with open(coco_labels_file_path, "r") as file:
    coco_labels = file.read().strip().split("\n")
    coco_labels_map = dict(enumerate(coco_labels, 1))

print(coco_labels_map)
{1: 'person', 2: 'bicycle', 3: 'car', 4: 'motorcycle', 5: 'airplan', 6: 'bus', 7: 'train', 8: 'truck', 9: 'boat', 10: 'traffic light', 11: 'fire hydrant', 12: 'street sign', 13: 'stop sign', 14: 'parking meter', 15: 'bench', 16: 'bird', 17: 'cat', 18: 'dog', 19: 'horse', 20: 'sheep', 21: 'cow', 22: 'elephant', 23: 'bear', 24: 'zebra', 25: 'giraffe', 26: 'hat', 27: 'backpack', 28: 'umbrella', 29: 'shoe', 30: 'eye glasses', 31: 'handbag', 32: 'tie', 33: 'suitcase', 34: 'frisbee', 35: 'skis', 36: 'snowboard', 37: 'sports ball', 38: 'kite', 39: 'baseball bat', 40: 'baseball glove', 41: 'skateboard', 42: 'surfboard', 43: 'tennis racket', 44: 'bottle', 45: 'plate', 46: 'wine glass', 47: 'cup', 48: 'fork', 49: 'knife', 50: 'spoon', 51: 'bowl', 52: 'banana', 53: 'apple', 54: 'sandwich', 55: 'orange', 56: 'broccoli', 57: 'carrot', 58: 'hot dog', 59: 'pizza', 60: 'donut', 61: 'cake', 62: 'chair', 63: 'couch', 64: 'potted plant', 65: 'bed', 66: 'mirror', 67: 'dining table', 68: 'window', 69: 'desk', 70: 'toilet', 71: 'door', 72: 'tv', 73: 'laptop', 74: 'mouse', 75: 'remote', 76: 'keyboard', 77: 'cell phone', 78: 'microwave', 79: 'oven', 80: 'toaster', 81: 'sink', 82: 'refrigerator', 83: 'blender', 84: 'book', 85: 'clock', 86: 'vase', 87: 'scissors', 88: 'teddy bear', 89: 'hair drier', 90: 'toothbrush', 91: 'hair brush'}

Finally, we are ready to visualize model inference results on the original test image:

    inference_result=inference_result,
    image=image,
    labels_map=coco_labels_map,
    detections_limit=5,

Next Steps#

This section contains suggestions on how to additionally improve the performance of your application using OpenVINO.

Async inference pipeline#

The key advantage of the Async

API is that when a device is busy with inference, the application can perform other tasks in parallel (for example, populating inputs or scheduling other requests) rather than wait for the current inference to complete first. To understand how to perform async inference using openvino, refer to the Async API tutorial.

Integration preprocessing to model#

Preprocessing API enables making preprocessing a part of the model reducing application code and dependency on additional image processing libraries. The main advantage of Preprocessing API is that preprocessing steps will be integrated into the execution graph and will be performed on a selected device (CPU/GPU etc.) rather than always being executed on CPU as part of an application. This will improve selected device utilization.

For more information, refer to the Optimize Preprocessing tutorial and to the overview of Preprocessing API.
