Introduction

detrex is an open-source toolbox that provides state-of-the-art Transformer-based detection algorithms. It is built on top of Detectron2 and its module design is partially borrowed from MMDetection and DETR. Many thanks for their nicely organized code. The main branch works with Pytorch 1.10+ or higher (we recommend Pytorch 1.12).

Major Features
  • Modular Design. detrex decomposes the Transformer-based detection framework into various components which help users easily build their own customized models.

  • State-of-the-art Methods. detrex provides a series of Transformer-based detection algorithms, including DINO which reached the SOTA of DETR-like models with 63.3mAP!

  • Easy to Use. detrex is designed to be light-weight and easy for users to use:

Apart from detrex, we also released a repo Awesome Detection Transformer to present papers about Transformer for detection and segmentation.

Fun Facts

The repo name detrex has several interpretations:

  • detr-ex : We take our hats off to DETR and regard this repo as an extension of Transformer-based detection algorithms.

  • det-rex : rex literally means ‘king’ in Latin. We hope this repo can help advance the state of the art on object detection by providing the best Transformer-based detection algorithms from the research community.

  • de-t.rex : de means ‘the’ in Dutch. T.rex, also called Tyrannosaurus Rex, means ‘king of the tyrant lizards’ and connects to our research work ‘DINO’, which is short for Dinosaur.

What’s New

v0.1.1 was released on 18/10/2022:

  • Add model analysis tools and benchmark in tools.
  • Support visualization on COCO eval results and annotations in tools
  • Support Group-DETR.
  • Release more DINO training results including DINO-R50-24epochs, DINO-R101, DINO-Swin-Tiny, DINO-Swin-Small, DINO-Swin-Base, DINO-Swin-Large in DINO.
  • Release better Deformable-DETR baselines with 48.2 AP on COCO dataset in Deformable-DETR.
