Node.js Wrapper for YOLO/Darknet recognition framework

Darknet is an open source neural network framework written in C and CUDA. This project wraps this framework in a Node.js native addon.

Status

Currently, the wrapper implements a demo method to run a recognition from the webcam/video or an image file. Equivalent to

./darknet detector demo cfg/coco.data cfg/yolo.cfg yolo.weights
./darknet detect cfg/yolo.cfg yolo.weights data/dog.jpg

Prerequisites

This module requires OpenCV installed. First, you need to compile this fork of darknet with OpenCV support (optionally, with CUDA support):

git clone https://github.com/OrKoN/darknet
cd darknet
make OPENCV=1 # optionally GPU=1
make install # by default installed to /usr/local

After that you can process with the installation via NPM.

The fork is required because it contains a few important changes to the origin source code which allow using darknet with NodeJS:

  • Makefile is extended to build a static library (darknet.a).
  • Makefile is extended with install and uninstall commands which install the library globally so that this module can easily find and link it.
  • All darknet functions in header files are marked with extern "C" if they are included in a C++ program (such as a NodeJS module).

Installation

npm install @moovel/yolo --save

Usage

Either download your own cfg, data folders and .weight files from the darknet project or use the ones included in test folder (see also test/readme.md). You also can find there the examples from below.

Detect a video from camera or a file:

const darknet = require('@moovel/yolo');

darknet.detect({
  cfg: './cfg/yolo.cfg',
  weights: './yolo.weights',
  data: './cfg/coco.data',
  cameraIndex: 0, // optional, default: 0,
  video: "./test.mp4", // optional, forces to use the video file instead of a camera
  thresh: 0.24, // optional, default: 0.24
  hierThresh: 0.5, // optional, default: 0.5
}, function(modified, original, detections, dimensions) {
  /**

  modified - raw frame with detections drawn, rgb24 format
  original - raw frame, as captured by the webcam/video, rgb24 format,
  detections - array of detections
  dimenstions - image width and height

  Example detections:

  [ { x: 0.8602103590965271,
      y: 0.20008485019207,
      w: 0.13895535469055176,
      h: 0.39782464504241943,

    { x: 0.6593853235244751,
      y: 0.8188746571540833,

      h: 0.100614033639431,
      prob: 0.3225017189979553,
      name: 'clock' } ]

  */
});

Detect on a single image:

const darknet = require('@moovel/yolo');

darknet.detectImage({
  cfg: './cfg/yolo.cfg',
  weights: './yolo.weights',
  data: './cfg/coco.data',
  image: './data/dog.jpg',
  thresh: 0.24, // optional, default: 0.24
  hierThresh: 0.5, // optional, default: 0.5,
}, function(modified, original, detections, dimensions) {
  /**

  original - raw frame, as captured by the webcam/video, rgb24 format,
  detections - array of detections

      h: 0.39782464504241943,
      prob: 0.2408987432718277,

    { x: 0.26072466373443604,

      w: 0.10842404514551163,
      h: 0.22796104848384857,

      w: 0.12322483211755753,
      h: 0.2544059157371521,

      prob: 0.3225017189979553,
      name: 'clock' } ]
  */
});

After that you can compress original frames with ffmpeg:

ffmpeg -f rawvideo -s 768x576 -pix_fmt rgb24 -i data.raw data.jpg
