Face recognition config question

Post by timf » Fri Jun 11, 2021 8:40 pm

I'm please to report that by and large my ZMes installation is working well - it can event detect our little dog running round the garden !

Just for academic interest I thought I'd turn on facial recognition. I did the face training which seemed to work ok using CNN see below, but I am a little confused as to what I should have in the objectconfig.ini here's what I have for my test monitor. I'll dig into the logs tomorrow but suspect its a config error as everything else seems ok.

Wonder what I'm missing ?

Regards Tim


objectconfig.ini snipprt:

[monitor-2]
# Gates
match_past_detections=no
wait=5

object_detection_pattern=(person|car|dog|truck)

import_zm_zones=yes

gates_zone_detection_pattern=(person|car|dog|truck)

resize=no
detection_sequence=object,face

1. Don't know if you are missing anything. You've posted logs for training, not for detection. Is face recognition being invoked for detection?
2. Make sure you have read this completely and are using use_sequence=yes. ml_sequence is key here.
Please don't ask me questions via PM. Please post in these forums or GitHub.

Hi Asker,

thanks again for your time and patience.

I had read all the guides I could find and they were very helpful but a time a little confusing / contradictory - however I now seem to have face recognition working based on these results:

Issuing this command

sudo -u www-data /var/lib/zmeventnotification/bin/zm_detect.py -c /etc/zm/objectconfig.ini -e 988

results in:

[ WARN:0] global /home/tim/opencvbuild/opencv/modules/dnn/src/cuda4dnn/init.hpp (42) checkVersions CUDART version 11030 reported by cuDNN 8201 does not match with the version reported by CUDART 10010
[s] detected:person:98% jan:100% --SPLIT--{"labels": ["person", "jan"], "boxes": [[158, 80, 724, 456], [442, 98, 540, 196]], "frame_id": "snapshot", "confidences": [0.983090877532959, 1], "image_dimensions": {"original": [1080, 1920], "resized": [450, 800]}}

So ignoring the warning message it does seem to detect faces, however the face name does not seem to get attachd to the image box, instead it just says person. Maybe another config option I've missed somewhere ?

I'm still a little confused wth some of the syntax and scope of the declarations such as the following:

use_sequence=yes >> where does this need to be located ? For each montior definition is objectconfig.ini ?

Do the monitor zones still get imported eg zone_name_zone_detection_pattern=(person|car) when placed in a monitor defiinition and using use_sequence=yes

Here's what I have for monitor-3

[monitor-3]

# office
match_past_detections=no
wait=5
import_zm_zones=yes
rhs_zone_detection_pattern=(person|car|dog)
resize=no
my_sequence=face,object
use_sequence=yes

One last question about logging - I'm having troble getting _zmesdetect to log.

Ive tried _zmesdetect_m3 but log is empty.

Once again, many thanks or all the effort involved.

Regards Tim

If you have time, please specifically point out which parts are contradictory and I'll see if it needs fixing.

I can't figure out if it is detecting faces by 2 lines you posted. You have to enable debug logs (run zm_detect with --debug, read the docs if you missed it) and see if face recognition is actually invoked. Unless you have configured face inside ml_sequence, it won't run. And if you have configured it, debug logs will tell you what is going on.
use_sequence=yes >> where does this need to be located ? For each montior definition is objectconfig.ini ?
The sample config file should give you a complete picture of this. use_sequence, like any other parameter can be specified globally inside the [ml] section, or locally inside each monitor. The way it works is, monitor specific settings override global settings.
Do the monitor zones still get imported eg zone_name_zone_detection_pattern=(person|car) when placed in a monitor defiinition and using use_sequence=yes
Yes. I suspect you aren't enabling debugs - they are critical to understand what is going on when you are starting up. It is as simple as running zm_detect with --debug - it will give you a lot of additional insight.

One last question about logging - I'm having troble getting _zmesdetect to log.

Hard to say, as you've not provided specifics.
Here are my ZM log settings

Re: Face recognition config question - SUCCESS

Thanks for the tips on setting up logging correctly and how the scope of the parameters work.

Turns out the monitor settings were overidding face detection so when I commented out rhs_zone_detection and my_sequence as per below the image now gets tagged with my name !

Simple as that :-)

Time for a beer
