imagenet-examples works but detectnet-examples dont.

I installed the new nano image and jetson-interface repo and am having a issue running the detectnet examples.

These imagenet examples run run fine.

./imagenet-camera.py ./imagenet-camera.py --network=resnet-18
./imagenet-camera.py --camera=/dev/video0 ./imagenet-camera.py --width=640 --height=480

Any of theses detectnet examples fail to run because they give the error:fail to load model.

./detectnet-camera.py ./detectnet-camera.py --network=facenet
./detectnet-camera.py --camera=/dev/video0 ./detectnet-camera.py --width=640 --height=480 #

Detectnet seems to be having a issue locating the models in this line of code:

parser.add_argument("–network", type=str, default=“pednet”, help=“pre-trained model to load, see below for options”)

I have downloaded the pre trained models a couple of times but that doesn’t fix it.

It doesn’t mater if I run the Python or CPP detectnet examples it still fails to run.

Any Ideas?

Hi adventuredaisy, can you post the terminal log you get when you try to run detectnet-console or detectnet-camera, and also check the contents of this directory below:

Also if you cloned the repo between 7/19 and 7/21, there was a temporary bug that I fixed, so might want to try re-cloning the project.

Here you go.

This is the error it shows

device GPU, networks/ped-100/snapshot_iter_70800.caffemodel initialized.
detectNet -- number object classes:   1

jetson.inference -- detectNet failed to load built-in network 'pednet'

OK, that error indicates the bug I mentioned above, which has since been fixed - so if you re-clone the repo, it should work for you now.

Re-cloned.
Works awesome now

Just want to say Thank you for all the Blood, Sweat and Tears you have obviously put into
This REPO.
