News: We released the technical report on ArXiv.



MMDetection is an open source object detection toolbox based on PyTorch. It is
a part of the OpenMMLab project developed by Multimedia Laboratory, CUHK.

The master branch works with PyTorch 1.3 to 1.6.
The old v1.x branch works with PyTorch 1.1 to 1.4, but v2.0 is strongly recommended for faster speed, higher performance, better design and more friendly usage.

Major features

  • Modular Design

    We decompose the detection framework into different components and one can easily construct a customized object detection framework by combining different modules.

  • Support of multiple frameworks out of box

    The toolbox directly supports popular and contemporary detection frameworks, e.g. Faster RCNN, Mask RCNN, RetinaNet, etc.

  • High efficiency

    All basic bbox and mask operations run on GPUs. The training speed is faster than or comparable to other codebases, including Detectron2, maskrcnn-benchmark and SimpleDet.

  • State of the art

    The toolbox stems from the codebase developed by the MMDet team, who won COCO Detection Challenge in 2018, and we keep pushing it forward.

Apart from MMDetection, we also released a library mmcv for computer vision research, which is heavily depended on by this toolbox.


This project is released under the Apache 2.0 license.


v2.6.0 was released in 1/11/2020.
Please refer to for details and release history.
A comparison between v1.x and v2.0 codebases can be found in

Getting Started

Please see for the basic usage of MMDetection.
We provide colab tutorial, and full guidance for quick run with existing dataset and with new dataset for beginners.
There are also tutorials for finetuning models, adding new dataset, designing data pipeline, customizing models, customizing runtime settings and useful tools.

Please refer to FAQ for frequently asked questions.


We appreciate all contributions to improve MMDetection. Please refer to for the contributing guideline.


MMDetection is an open source project that is contributed by researchers and engineers from various colleges and companies. We appreciate all the contributors who implement their methods or add new features, as well as users who give valuable feedbacks.
We wish that the toolbox and benchmark could serve the growing research community by providing a flexible toolkit to reimplement existing methods and develop their own new detectors.
