I run sampleSSD sample in TensorRT-5.0.2.6/bin/sampleSSD,the error is as follows:

I think I need to edit the deploy.prototxt file. The tutorial I found is as follows https://docs.nvidia.com/deeplearning/sdk/tensorrt-developer-guide/index.html#samples.
But I don’t know how to change it.

Try searching in this thread: https://github.com/chenzhi1992/TensorRT-SSD/issues/5
It has some discussions on how to modify .prototxt near the end.
Hope it helps

Hi,

You have to follow the instructions in the associated README.md with the sampleSSD code for changing deploy.prototxt and then renaming is to ssd.prototxt. The instructions can also be found here: https://docs.nvidia.com/deeplearning/sdk/tensorrt-release-notes/tensorrt-5.html#rel_5-0-2

I’ve gone through the instructions to produce an example ssd.prototxt file that worked with the sampleSSD code in /workspace/tensorrt/samples/sampleSSD in the TensorRT 5.1 (19.03-pyX) NGC Container: https://ngc.nvidia.com/catalog/containers/nvidia:tensorrt/

Example ssd.prototxt file after following README.md instructions attached. (You will have to remove the extra .txt extension at the end of the filename.)

Thanks,

ssd.prototxt.txt (24.8 KB)

Are these changes documented specific to the sample SSD model? How about any other Caffe model? Is there a generic documentation applicable for any model?

Hi, The link to download the ssd.prototxt is no longer available. Is it possible to update ?

Need example ssd.prototxt…Its not clear to me on what we need to change in the deploy.txt
