Car Recognition

This repository is to do car recognition by fine-tuning ResNet-152 with Cars Dataset from Stanford.



We use the Cars Dataset, which contains 16,185 images of 196 classes of cars. The data is split into 8,144 training images and 8,041 testing images, where each class has been split roughly in a 50-50 split.


You can get it from Cars Dataset:

$ cd Car-Recognition
$ wget
$ wget
$ wget --no-check-certificate

ImageNet Pretrained Models

Download ResNet-152 into models folder.


Data Pre-processing

Extract 8,144 training images, and split them by 80:20 rule (6,515 for training, 1,629 for validation):

$ python


$ python

If you want to visualize during training, run in your terminal:

$ tensorboard --logdir path_to_current_dir/logs



Update "modelweightspath" in "" with your best model, and use 1,629 validation images for result analysis:

$ python

Validation acc:


Confusion matrix:



$ python

Submit predictions of test data set (8,041 testing images) at Cars Dataset, evaluation result:

Test acc:




Download pre-trained model into "models" folder then run:

$ python --i [image_path]

If no argument, a sample image is used:


$ python
