Delving into Localization Errors for Monocular 3D Detection

By Xinzhu Ma, Yinmin Zhang, Dan Xu, Dongzhan Zhou, Shuai Yi, Haojie Li, Wanli Ouyang.

This repository is an official implementation of the paper 'Delving into Localization Errors for Monocular 3D Detection'. In this work, by intensive diagnosis experiments, we quantify the impact introduced by each sub-task and found the ‘localization error’ is the vital factor in restricting monocular 3D detection. Besides, we also investigate the underlying reasons behind localization errors, analyze the issues they might bring, and propose three strategies.



This repo is tested on our local environment (python=3.6, cuda=9.0, pytorch=1.1), and we recommend you to use anaconda to create a vitural environment:

conda create -n monodle python=3.6

Then, activate the environment:

conda activate monodle

Install Install PyTorch:

conda install pytorch==1.1.0 torchvision==0.3.0 cudatoolkit=9.0 -c pytorch

and other requirements:

pip install -r requirements.txt

Data Preparation

Please download KITTI dataset and organize the data as follows:

      |ImageSets/ [already provided in this repo]

Training & Evaluation

Move to the workplace and train the network:

 cd #ROOT
 cd experiments/example
 python ../../tools/ --config config_patchnet.yaml

The model will be evaluated automatically if the training completed. If you only want evaluate your trained model (or the provided pretrained model) , you can modify the test part configuration in the .yaml file and use the following command:

python ../../tools/ --config config_patchnet.yaml --e

For ease of use, we also provide a pre-trained checkpoint, which can be used for evaluation directly. See the below table to check the performance.
