The inference result of mobilenet example on ncappzoo seems not correct

I ran "python3" in the folder of mobilenet of ncappzoo, which infers a picture of "nps_electric_guitar.png", but the result is:

Mobilenet on NCS

653 military uniform 0.9873
765 rifle 0.0049477
890 violin, fiddle 0.003397
727 plane, carpenter's plane, woodworking plane 0.0014963
414 assault rifle, assault gun 0.00078201


Is that correct?

  • @xhuan28 I am observing the same thing. In fact the results are always the same no matter which image you point to. Will investigate further, maybe something is hardcoded there.

  • Hi guys, has this problem been solved yet?
    I've tried moblienet code provided by ncappzoo recently, and this situation also occurs.
    I've also tried doing inference on different pictures, the result are all wrong and weird.
    No matter what parameter I chose (version of mobilenet model, img_size, mean, std variable in, the situation never changed.
    However, every other models (e.g. inception-v1, v2 , etc.) are all fine.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or solutions? Thanks!

  • @Thanatine @xhuan28 Thanks for bringing your concern to the forum. Try using the latest NCSDK (version 1.12.xx) while using the command: make run to run the Mobilenets example. Please let me know if this fixes your issue.

  • @Tome_at_Intel I tried with 1.12.xx version, and the issue still exist.
    For Eg. using the 512_Amplifier image, inference is incorrect.

    Start download to NCS...

    Mobilenet on NCS for image ../../data/images/512_Amplifier.jpg

    808 solar dish, solar collector, solar furnace 0.92432
    908 wine bottle 0.028793
    653 military uniform 0.0121
    900 water jug 0.012001
    412 apron 0.0052032

  • @xhuan28, @xhuan28, @Thanatine, I tried these instructions with NCSDK 1.2.00 and master branch of ncappzoo. Let me know if this does not work for you.

    NOTE: Steps 1 & 2 are essentially a breakdown of what happens when you run make run in ~/workspace/ncappzoo/tensorflow/mobilenets. Just make sure you have done a git pull inside your ~/workspace/ncappzoo/ directory.

    1. Build mobilenet graph

    cd ~/workspace/ncappzoo/tensorflow/mobilenets

    I get the following results

    Exporting GraphDef file...
    Freezing model for inference...
    Profiling the model...
    29   MobilenetV1/Predictions/Softmax                                      0.0    19.1   0.199
                                                     Total inference time                   39.29
    Generating Profile Report 'output_report.html'...
    Movidius graph generated! You can run inferences using ncappzoo/apps/image-classifier project.

    2. Run an inference using image-classifier app

    cd ~/workspace/ncappzoo/apps/image-classifier
    python3 --graph ../../tensorflow/mobilenets/model/graph --labels ../../tensorflow/mobilenets/model/labels.txt --mean 127.5 --scale 0.00789 --dim 224 224 --colormode="RGB" --image ../../data/images/512_Amplifier.jpg

    I get the following results

    Top predictions for 512_Amplifier.jpg
    Execution time: 39.28766ms
    94.8%   755:radio, wireless
    3.9%    849:tape player
    0.8%    486:CD player
    0.3%    483:cassette player
    0.0%    633:loudspeaker, speaker, speaker unit, loudspeaker system, speaker system

    You should also see an visual representation of 512_Amplifier.jpg. I tried with a couple other images in data/images, they all worked fine.

  • @AshwinVijayakumar , Yes I updated to the latest version of ncapp zoo and it is working now with NCSDK1.12. Thanks for your support.
