Our Object detection model follows the ResNet50 convolutional Faster-RCNN architecture.
It allows to locate in the image the bugs (bees or flies) and allocate them to a class:
- Apis = melliferous bees
- Eristalis = Eristalis (Tenax or Arbustorum) One of the mimetic for those bees
The model was trained on 70 images of melliferous bees and 70 images of two Eristalis species.
