Object Detection Target Model

What is DETR?

This repository contains the code supporting the DETR base model for use with Autodistill.

DETR is a transformer-based computer vision model you can use for object detection. Autodistill supports training a model using the Meta Research Resnet 50 checkpoint.

To use DETR with autodistill, you need to install the following dependency:

pip3 install autodistill-detr


from autodistill_detr import DETR

# load the model
target_model = DETR()

# train for 10 epochs
target_model.train("./roads", epochs=10)

# run inference on an image
