MMDetection: Open MMLab Detection Toolbox and Benchmark

Overall framework

MMDetection is an open source object detection toolbox based on PyTorch. It is a part of the OpenMMLab project.

Major features
  • Modular Design

    We decompose the detection framework into different components and one can easily construct a customized object detection framework by combining different modules.

  • Support of multiple frameworks out of box

    The toolbox directly supports popular and contemporary detection frameworks, e.g. Faster RCNN, Mask RCNN, RetinaNet, etc.

  • High efficiency

    All basic bbox and mask operations run on GPUs. The training speed is faster than or comparable to other codebases, including Detectron2, maskrcnn-benchmark and SimpleDet.

  • State of the art

    The toolbox stems from the codebase developed by the MMDet team, who won COCO Detection Challenge in 2018, and we keep pushing it forward.

Apart from MMDetection, we also released a library mmcv for computer vision research, which is heavily depended on by this toolbox.
