Hi! I'm an university student and for my thesis work I have to perform object detection using YOLO.

I read the related paper and I completed all of the command line examples located at https://pjreddie.com/darknet/yolo/.

Now I have to do the same using OpenCV. I'm using Xubuntu 16.04 LTS x64, OpenCV 3.3.1 and Qt Creator 4.5.0.

For the moment I'm stuck at these few lines because I can't succeed to initialize the network.

#include <opencv2/core.hpp>
#include <opencv2/dnn.hpp>
#include <opencv2/dnn/shape_utils.hpp>
#include <iostream>

using namespace cv;
using namespace cv::dnn;
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    // The path to the .cfg file with text description of the network architecture.
    String modelConfiguration = "/home/lorenzo/Scrivania/yolo-9000/darknet/cfg/yolo-9000.cfg";
    // The path to the .weights file with learned network.
    String modelBinary = "/home/lorenzo/Scrivania/yolo-9000/yolo9000-weights/yolo-9000.weights";

    //! [Initialize network]
    //Reads a network model stored in Darknet model files.
    dnn::Net net = readNetFromDarknet(modelConfiguration, modelBinary);
    //! [Initialize network]

    if (net.empty())
    {
        cerr << "Can't load network by using the following files: " << endl;
        cerr << "cfg-file:     " << modelConfiguration << endl;
        cerr << "weights-file: " << modelBinary << endl;
        exit(-1);
    }

    return 0;
}

It returns me the following error.

OpenCV Error: Parsing error (Failed to parse NetParameter file: /home/lorenzo/Scrivania/yolo-9000/darknet/cfg/yolo-9000.cfg) in ReadNetParamsFromCfgFileOrDie,
                      file /home/lorenzo/Scrivania/opencv-3.3.1/modules/dnn/src/darknet/darknet_io.cpp, line 612

I opened the file at "/home/lorenzo/Scrivania/opencv-3.3.1/modules/dnn/src/darknet/darknet_io.cpp" and I found the following code at lines 609:614.

void ReadNetParamsFromCfgFileOrDie(const char *cfgFile, darknet::NetParameter *net)
        {
            if (!darknet::ReadDarknetFromCfgFile(cfgFile, net)) {
                CV_Error(cv::Error::StsParseError, "Failed to parse NetParameter file: " + std::string(cfgFile));
            }
        }

The output of cv::getBuildInformation() is the following.
