AI Object Detection Solution with YOLOv5 | Deep Learning | Machine Learning


In the past few years, the rapid development of AI deep learning technologies has dramatically accelerated the momentum of object detection. Object detection is at the core of most vision-based AI software and programs and plays a crucial role in scene understanding. Automatic analysis of images and videos to detect, identify, and count different items, animals, and people is commonly used in security, traffic, medical, and military applications.

Despite significant advances in the field and the power of computer vision, detecting objects is a complex implementation that often faces quite a few challenges. Object detection is a very complex task involving visual classification and object localization. Challenges in object detection include:

1. Objects may look completely
different from different viewpoints

2. The darker the light, the lower the visibility of objects

3. Messy backgrounds affect

4. Objects in motion require more precise algorithms

Popular algorithms used to perform object detection include R-CNN (Region-Based Convolutional Neural Networks), Fast R-CNN, and YOLO. The R-CNN models may generally be more accurate, yet the YOLO family of models is fast, much faster than R-CNN, achieving object detection in real-time.

Referring to this benchmark (YOLOv5 TensorRT Benchmark for NVIDIA® Jetson™ AGX Xavier™ and NVIDIA® Laptop 1),we also tested the very popular YOLOv5 object detection with the Blade 3 in hand to see how it works on the RK3588 chip and show its performance. 

Here, we show you detailed tutorial resources to do YOLO object detection for real-time camera feeds and videos.
