If your labeling tool exported annotations in theCOCO
format, but you’re trying to use a
model that needsTFRecord
annotations, we’ve got you covered. You can convert those in 3 clicks with Roboflow.
Roboflow is the universal conversion tool for computer vision annotation formats. It's completely free for your first 1,000 images. You'll need an account to convert your dataset.
Once your account has been created, click Create Dataset.
To learn how to create COCO JSON yourself from scratch, see our CVAT (object detection annotation tool) tutorial.
Next, you can choose Preprocessing and Augmentation options for your dataset version and then click Generate.
After generating, you will be prompted to Export your dataset. You can choose to receive your dataset as a .zip file or a curl download link. You can also choose which format you would like to export. Choose
Congratulations, you have successfully converted your dataset from

If you're looking for more info, we have a more detailed blog post about creating Object Detection TFRecord files.
Here are some compatible models:
MobileNet SSD v2
This architecture provides good realtime results on limited compute. It's designed to run in realtime (30 frames per second) even on mobile devices.
One of the most accurate object detection algorithms but requires a lot of power at inference time. A good choice if you can do processing asynchronously on a server.
