Mobile Object Detection using TensorFlow Lite and Transfer Learning

University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

Abstract: With the advancement in deep learning in the past few years, we are able to create complex machine learning models for detecting objects in images, regardless of the characteristics of the objects to be detected. This development has enabled engineers to replace existing heuristics-based systems in favour of machine learning models with superior performance. In this report, we evaluate the viability of using deep learning models for object detection in real-time video feeds on mobile devices in terms of object detection performance and inference delay as either an end-to-end system or feature extractor for existing algorithms. Our results show a significant increase in object detection performance in comparison to existing algorithms with the use of transfer learning on neural networks adapted for mobile use.
