Marine Organisms Tracking and Recognizing Using YOLO
A system that investigates deep sea automatically has never developed. A purpose of this study is developing such a system. We employed a technique of recognition and tracking of multi-objects, called “You Only Look Once: YOLO.” This method provides us very fast and accurate tracker. In our system, we remove the haze, which is caused by turbidity of water, from image. After its process, we apply “YOLO” to tracking and recognizing the marine organisms, which includes shrimp, squid, crab, and shark. Our developed system shows generally satisfactory performance.
