FoveaBox: Beyond Anchor-based Object Detector

8 Apr 2019Tao KongFuchun SunHuaping LiuYuning JiangJianbo Shi

We present FoveaBox, an accurate, flexible and completely anchor-free framework for object detection. While almost all state-of-the-art object detectors utilize the predefined anchors to enumerate possible locations, scales and aspect ratios for the search of the objects, their performance and generalization ability are also limited to the design of anchors...
