Run any pretrained model : People net, Facenet etc. using webcam?

Please provide complete information as applicable to your setup.

• Hardware Platform (Jetson / GPU) Nano
• DeepStream Version 5.1
• JetPack Version (valid for Jetson only) 4.5.1

Hi ,

The above is the hardware and versions i’m using in the Jetson Nano. I am trying to run the deepstream pretrained tlt-models using a webcam. I am able to run the FaceDetectIR model using the RTSP(ip cam) by editing the config. I also want to know the location of the source code of the FaceDetectIR so that I can make necessary configurations in the source code.

Im not able to run using webcam. Can anyone help me on this?

What do you mean? Do you want to modify the model?

You mentioned you can run the model. With which application?

Why do you say the following? What do you want to run?

Can you elaborate what are you talking about? The modle or the deepstream application?

Im trying to run the tlt model FaceDetectIR → NVIDIA NGC

I want to run this model in the deepstream application using webcam. Now i’m able to run this model over video files and RTSP cam using “deepstream-app -c deepstream_app_source1_faceirnet.txt” command, in which i changed the

[source0]
enable=1
#Type - 1=CameraV4L2 2=URI 3=MultiURI
type=2
num-sources=1
uri=rtsp://root:root321@10.20.1.3/axis-media/media.amp?streamprofile=H264

I want to know the steps to run the model in a deepstream app using webcam.

How does the webcam connected to the Nano board?
Most webcams are ip cameras with RTSP network connection. Webcam - Wikipedia
I’m confused with your description.

Hi,

It is a usb camera. I have connected it using USB

OK. Can you use “v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0 --list-formats-ext” to query the camera information?

So you can try V4L2 source. DeepStream Reference Application - deepstream-app — DeepStream 5.1 Release documentation

For example:
[source0]
enable=0
type=1
camera-width=1280
camera-height=720
camera-fps-n=10
camera-fps-d=1
camera-v4l2-dev-node=/dev/video0

Please read the document carefully. DeepStream Reference Application - deepstream-app — DeepStream 5.1 Release documentation

One more doubt is regarding the ID of the detection bounding box keeps on changing fast. Is there any way to stop the id change when the object is in the frame.?

For eg:
While detecting people or faces the id keeps on changing rapidly for a single person.

Please help.

Please change “camera-v4l2-dev-node=/dev/video0” to “camera-v4l2-dev-node=0”.

Thanks it works.

We are using DeepStream’s python binding for out implementation and we are facing below stated issues.

  1. We want to modularize as model loading, inference, and post-processing. But these things are getting done in the backend C++ code which is a deprecated one. So We are unable to access the model variable and getting the frame-by-frame inference from the package.

  2. We need to build a single function-based inference from the deepStream model in python. As the current python pipeline is suitable for the video-wise inference demo.

  3. If somehow we can manage to get the model loading and inference part from the backend code, I hope we’ll be done with whatever we’re currently trying to get.
