### newbie questions on real time detection

Hello,

So i imported a model (darknet) and i can do classification and object detection. So my next step would to do it on videos instead of the pictures. Well my first naive approach was to do it on every frame, thas is horrible slow

    //bigger blob sizes make it slower
Mat blob = blobFromImage(img, 1 / 255.F, new Size(416, 416), new Scalar(0), true, true);
net.setInput(blob);

long start = System.currentTimeMillis();
Mat detectionMat = net.forward();//compute output
long end = System.currentTimeMillis();
System.err.println("net detection took: "+(end-start)+"ms");


The output is :

net detection took: 1842ms
net detection took: 1058ms
net detection took: 1176ms
net detection took: 1171ms


Here my questions: 1. I know its hard to say - but are the detection times "slow" ? 2. What can i do to improve the performance?

Thank you very much again + Greetings, Holger

Thank you + Greetings, Holger

I was thinking about creating a buffer using object dection "in the future" and then use object detection to follow it (hope its faster) - Is that a good idea?

2. What can i do to improve the performance?
