An Energy and GPU-Computation Efficient Backbone Network for Real-Time Object Detection

22 Apr 2019osmr/imgclsmob

As DenseNet conserves intermediate features with diverse receptive fields by aggregating them with dense connection, it shows good performance on the object detection task.

Rethinking Rotated Object Detection with Gaussian Wasserstein Distance Loss

28 Jan 2021yangxue0827/RotationDetection

Boundary discontinuity and its inconsistency to the final detection metric have been the bottleneck for rotating detection regression loss design.

Small-Object Detection in Remote Sensing Images with End-to-End Edge-Enhanced GAN and Object Detector Network

20 Mar 2020Jakaria08/EESRGAN

Inspired by the success of edge enhanced GAN (EEGAN) and ESRGAN, we apply a new edge-enhanced super-resolution GAN (EESRGAN) to improve the image quality of remote sensing images and use different detector networks in an end-to-end manner where detector loss is backpropagated into the EESRGAN to improve the detection performance.

Augmentation for small object detection

19 Feb 2019zzl-pointcloud/Data_Augmentation_Zoo_for_Object_Detection

We evaluate different pasting augmentation strategies, and ultimately, we achieve 9. 7\% relative improvement on the instance segmentation and 7. 1\% on the object detection of small objects, compared to the current state of the art method on

SWIPENET: Object detection in noisy underwater images

19 Oct 2020LongChenCV/SWIPENet

Moreover, inspired by the human education process that drives the learning from easy to hard concepts, we here propose the CMA training paradigm that first trains a clean detector which is free from the influence of noisy data.

Underwater object detection using Invert Multi-Class Adaboost with deep learning

23 May 2020LongChenCV/SWIPENet

In addition, we propose a novel sample-weighted loss function which can model sample weights for SWIPENet, which uses a novel sample re-weighting algorithm, namely Invert Multi-Class Adaboost (IMA), to reduce the influence of noise on the proposed SWIPENet.

Feature-Fused SSD: Fast Detection for Small Objects

15 Sep 2017wnzhyee/Feature-Fused-SSD

We propose a multi-level feature fusion method for introducing contextual information in SSD, in order to improve the accuracy for small objects.

MDSSD: Multi-scale Deconvolutional Single Shot Detector for Small Objects

18 May 2018siddhanthaldar/PyTorch_Object_Detection

The performance of small object detection, however, is still less than satisfactory because of the deficiency of semantic information on shallow feature maps.
