Car Detection Using Single Shot MultiBox Detector (SSD Convolutional Neural Network) in ROS Using Caffe

This work is similar to the previous work here, but this time I used Single Shot MultiBox Detector (SSD) for car detection. Installation is similar, clone the  SSD Caffe:

add the following lines to your Makefile.config

and build it:

used video_stream_opencv to stream your video:

download the trained model from here and put them in the model directory.

in the rviz, go to add a panel, and add integrated viewer>ImageViewrPlugin.

Now correct the topic in the added panel and you should see detected cars:
