This is the code for the video shown in this link. For this program to run properly, tensorflow must be installed on your computer with all related dependencies

Follow this guide to install tensorflow

Dependencies needed for this code to run

You can follow this excellent tutorial to install all dependencies.

The label file was downloaded from tensorflow official github repo, link can be found here

If you don’t find it, I’ve kept a copy in my one drive for code, frozen graph as well as the label file which can be found here

# ## Object detection imports
# Here are the imports from the object detection module.

# In[3]:

from object_detection.utils import label_map_util
from object_detection.utils import visualization_utils as vis_util

# # Model preparation 

# ## Variables
# Any model exported using the `` tool can be loaded here simply by changing `PATH_TO_CKPT` to point to a new .pb file.  
# By default we use an "SSD with Mobilenet" model here. See the [detection model zoo]( for a list of other models that can be run out-of-the-box with varying speeds and accuracies.

# In[4]:

# What model to download.
MODEL_NAME = 'ssd_mobilenet_v1_coco_11_06_2017'

# Path to frozen detection graph. This is the actual model that is used for the object detection.
PATH_TO_CKPT = 'C:/Users/Automation/Documents/TensorFlow/workspace/tfdemo/frozen_inference_graph.pb'

# List of the strings that is used to add correct label for each box.
