Hi Team,
I am trying to perform preprocessing using dwDataConditioner APIs. Below are the steps being executed below -

  • Read image frames using opencv
  • Loaded the image data to dwimageCUDA instance on device memory
  • Set the dataConditionerParams for the mean and std. deviation values
  • Invoked the dwDataConditioner_prepareDataRaw method accordingly
  • Logged the output for input and output pixel data for the reference frame.

It seems that the outputs are not accurate as per the DW API calculations i.e. -
The results are computed using the following formula -

  • meanImage is optional and is 0 if it is not set
  • perPlaneMeanX is the mean per plane for that channel and is optional and 0
  • Normalizaton formula for RGB -
    R’ = ((R - meanValue[0] - meanImage[pixelIndex] - perPlaneMeanR) / stdev[0]) * scaleCoefficient
    G’ = ((G - meanValue[1] - meanImage[pixelIndex] - perPlaneMeanG) / stdev[1]) * scaleCoefficient
    B’ = ((B - meanValue[2] - meanImage[pixelIndex] - perPlaneMeanB) / stdev[2]) * scaleCoefficient

Ref. URL - DataConditioner Interface

Please find the below code snippet from my experiment. Also, do let me know if my approach is correct for handling the image params for the dataconditioner. The output (normalized) obtained from DataConditioner seems to be 0 for the targeted pixels.

Dear @ankitm4,
As a sanity check, could you check printing the dptr array values of input and output CUDA buffers inside a CUDA kernel to confirm if they are matching. Please see /path/to/driveworks/samples/image/image_common/utils.cu file to know how to access dptr array values inside a kernel.

Hi @SivaRamaKrishnaNV ,
Please find the code snippet and the sanity checks logs for input and output as adviced above. It seems that the output from DataConditioner is 0 for all the respective RGB channels.

This sample image data is an interleaved RGB uint8 image.

Thank you.

Dear @ankitm4,
Do you still have issue with data conditioner? If so, please share the used input video(one or couple of frames) for debugging on our side.
