Object detection is a famous branch of research in computer vision, many state of the art object detection algorithms have been introduced in the recent past, but how good are those object detectors when it comes to dense object detection? In this paper we review common and highly accurate object detection methods on the scenes where numerous similar looking objects are placed in close proximity with each other. We also show that, multi-task learning of gaussian maps along with classification…

Densely-packed Object Detection via Hard Negative-Aware Anchor Attention

Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method based on the AWHD and HNAA attention produces accurate densely-packed object detection results and comparably outperforms other state-of-the-art detection methods.

Semi-supervised Learning for Dense Object Detection in Retail Scenes

This work adapts a popular self supervised method called noisy student initially proposed for object classification to the task of dense object detection and shows that using unlabeled data with the noisy student training methodology can improve the state of the art on precise detection of objects in densely packed retail scenes.

Dense Traffic Detection at Highway-Railroad Grade Crossings

A novel convolutional neural network (CNN) named dense traffic detection net (DTDNet) is developed that proposes to integrate the Transformer Attention module for better modeling of global context information and the learning-to-match detection head for optimizing object detection and localization using a likelihood probability fashion.

Gaussian map predictions for 3D surface feature localisation and counting

The results of training the proposed system on several hundreds of 3D scans of strawberries from a publicly available dataset demonstrate the accuracy and precision of the system which outperforms the state-of-the-art density-based methods for this application.



Focal Loss for Dense Object Detection

This paper proposes to address the extreme foreground-background class imbalance encountered during training of dense detectors by reshaping the standard cross entropy loss such that it down-weights the loss assigned to well-classified examples, and develops a novel Focal Loss, which focuses training on a sparse set of hard examples and prevents the vast number of easy negatives from overwhelming the detector during training.

Rich Feature Hierarchies for Accurate Object Detection and Semantic Segmentation

This paper proposes a simple and scalable detection algorithm that improves mean average precision (mAP) by more than 30% relative to the previous best result on VOC 2012 -- achieving a mAP of 53.3%.

You Only Look Once: Unified, Real-Time Object Detection

Compared to state-of-the-art detection systems, YOLO makes more localization errors but is less likely to predict false positives on background, and outperforms other detection methods, including DPM and R-CNN, when generalizing from natural images to other domains like artwork.

Feature Pyramid Networks for Object Detection

This paper exploits the inherent multi-scale, pyramidal hierarchy of deep convolutional networks to construct feature pyramids with marginal extra cost and achieves state-of-the-art single-model results on the COCO detection benchmark without bells and whistles.

Benchmark for Generic Product Detection: A Low Data Baseline for Dense Object Detection

This work trains a standard object detector on a small, normally packed dataset with data augmentation techniques, and creates a varied benchmark for generic SKU product detection by providing full annotations for multiple public datasets.

Precise Detection in Densely Packed Scenes

This work proposes a novel, deep-learning based method for precise object detection, designed for such challenging settings as packed retail environments, and shows the method to outperform existing state-of-the-art with substantial margins.

Faster R-CNN: Towards Real-Time Object Detection with Region Proposal Networks

This work introduces a Region Proposal Network (RPN) that shares full-image convolutional features with the detection network, thus enabling nearly cost-free region proposals and further merge RPN and Fast R-CNN into a single network by sharing their convolutionAL features.

SSD: Single Shot MultiBox Detector

The approach, named SSD, discretizes the output space of bounding boxes into a set of default boxes over different aspect ratios and scales per feature map location, which makes SSD easy to train and straightforward to integrate into systems that require a detection component.

Microsoft COCO: Common Objects in Context

We present a new dataset with the goal of advancing the state-of-the-art in object recognition by placing the question of object recognition in the context of the broader question of scene

Training Region-Based Object Detectors with Online Hard Example Mining

OHEM is a simple and intuitive algorithm that eliminates several heuristics and hyperparameters in common use that leads to consistent and significant boosts in detection performance on benchmarks like PASCAL VOC 2007 and 2012.
