# Re-training SSD-Mobilenet
Next, we'll train our own SSD-Mobilenet object detection model using PyTorch and the [Open Images](https://storage.googleapis.com/openimages/web/visualizer/index.html?set=train&type=detection&c=%2Fm%2F06l9r) dataset. SSD-Mobilenet is a popular network architecture for realtime object detection on mobile and embedded devices that combines the [SSD-300](https://arxiv.org/abs/1512.02325) Single-Shot MultiBox Detector with a [Mobilenet](https://arxiv.org/abs/1704.04861) backbone.

In the example below, we'll train a custom detection model that locates 8 different varieties of fruit, although you are welcome to pick from any of the [600 classes](https://github.com/dusty-nv/pytorch-ssd/blob/master/open_images_classes.txt) in the Open Images dataset to train your model on. You can visually browse the dataset [here](https://storage.googleapis.com/openimages/web/visualizer/index.html?set=train&type=detection).
To get started, first make sure that you have [JetPack 4.4](https://developer.nvidia.com/embedded/jetpack) or newer and [PyTorch installed](pytorch-transfer-learning.md#installing-pytorch) for **Python 3.6** on your Jetson. JetPack 4.4 includes TensorRT 7.1, which is the minimum TensorRT version that supports loading SSD-Mobilenet via ONNX. And the PyTorch training scripts used for training SSD-Mobilenet are for Python3, so PyTorch should be installed for Python 3.6.
