MLRecogNet with TAO Deploy

To generate an optimized TensorRT engine, the MLRecogNet .onnx file, which is generated using tao export, is taken as an input to tao-deploy. Currently, MLRecogNet supports FP32, FP16 and INT8 data types.

For more information about training an MLRecogNet model, refer to the MLRecogNet training documentation.

Here is an example spec $TRT_GEN_SPEC for generating TensorRT engine from the exported MLRecogNet onnx model.

trt_config

The trt_config parameter provides options related to TensorRT generation.
