PyTorch Object Detection :: meituan/YOLOv6
The YOLOv6 repository was published June 2022 by Meituan, and it claims new state-of-the-art performance on the COCO dataset benchmark. We'll leave it to the community to determine if this name is the best representation for the architecture.
In any case, it's clear MT-YOLOv6 (hereafter YOLOv6 for brevity) is popular. In a couple short weeks, the repo has attracted over 2,000+ stars and 300+ forks.
YOLOv6 claims to set a new state-of-the-art performance on the COCO dataset benchmark. As the authors detail, YOLOv6-s achieves 43.1 mAP on COCO val2017 dataset (with 520 FPS on T4 using TensorRT FP16 for bs32 inference).
(For point of comparison, YOLOv5-s achieves 37.4 mAP @ 0.95% on the same COCO benchmark.)
The YOLOv6 repository authors published the below evaluation graphic, demonstrating YOLOv6 outperforming YOLOv5 and YOLOX at similar sizes.
