This repository represents Ultralytics open-source research into future object detection methods, and incorporates our lessons learned and best practices evolved over training thousands of models on custom client datasets with our previous YOLO repository https://github.com/ultralytics/yolov3. All code and models are under active development, and are subject to modification or deletion without notice. Use at your own risk.
** GPU Speed measures end-to-end time per image averaged over 5000 COCO val2017 images using a V100 GPU with batch size 32, and includes image preprocessing, PyTorch FP32 inference, postprocessing and NMS.
- June 19, 2020: FP16 as new default for smaller checkpoints and faster inference. Comparison in d4c6674.
- June 9, 2020: CSP updates to all YOLOv5 models. New models are faster, smaller and more accurate. Credit to @WongKinYiu for his excellent work with CSP.
- May 27, 2020: Public release of repo. YOLOv5 models are SOTA among all known YOLO implementations, YOLOv5 family will be undergoing architecture research and development over Q2/Q3 2020 to increase performance. Updates may include CSP bottlenecks, YOLOv4 features, as well as PANet or BiFPN heads.
- April 1, 2020: Begin development of a 100% PyTorch, scaleable YOLOv3/4-based group of future models, in a range of compound-scaled sizes. Models will be defined by new user-friendly
*.yamlfiles. New training methods will be simpler to start, faster to finish, and more robust to training a wider variety of custom dataset.
** APtest denotes COCO test-dev2017 server results, all other AP results in the table denote val2017 accuracy.
** All AP numbers are for single-model single-scale without ensemble or test-time augmentation. Reproduce by
python test.py --img 736 --conf 0.001
** SpeedGPU measures end-to-end time per image averaged over 5000 COCO val2017 images using a GCP n1-standard-16 instance with one V100 GPU, and includes image preprocessing, PyTorch FP16 image inference at --batch-size 32 --img-size 640, postprocessing and NMS. Average NMS time included in this chart is 1-2ms/img. Reproduce by
python test.py --img 640 --conf 0.1
** All checkpoints are trained to 300 epochs with default settings and hyperparameters (no autoaugmentation).
Python 3.7 or later with all
requirements.txt dependencies installed, including
torch >= 1.5. To install run:
$ pip install -U -r requirements.txt
Inference can be run on most common media formats. Model checkpoints are downloaded automatically if available. Results are saved to

Reproduce Our Training
Download COCO, install Apex and run command below. Training times for YOLOv5s/m/l/x are 2/4/6/8 days on a single V100 (multi-GPU times faster). Use the largest
--batch-size your GPU allows (batch sizes shown for 16 GB devices).
$ python train.py --data coco.yaml --cfg yolov5s.yaml --weights '' --batch-size 64 yolov5m 48 yolov5l 32 yolov5x 16
