机器学习算法对算力要求较高,通常会采用 GPU ,或者专用的处理器如 NPU 进行加速运算。NXP 先后推出的两款处理器iMX8QuadMax   iMX8M Plus 分别可以采用 GPU  NPU 对常用的机器学习算法例如 TensorFlow Lite 等进行加速。文章将使用 NXP eIQ 框架在两个处理器上测试不同算法的性能。

 

这里我们将使用 Toradex  Apalis iMX8QM 4GB WB IT V1.1C  Verdin iMX8M Plus Quad 4GB WB IT V1.0B 两个模块。BSP  Linux BSP V5.3 eIQ 采用 zeus-5.4.70-2.3.3 版本。Toradex 默认 Yocto Project 编译环境并没有直接集成  eIQ 软件可以参考这里添加 meta-ml layer 并进行编译。然后修改  meta-ml/recipes-devtools/python/python3-pybind11_2.5.0.bb 中的Python 版本为 3.8 。最后可以生成  multimedia image

-------------------------------------

EXTRA_OECMAKE = "-DPYBIND11_TEST=OFF \ 
-DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=${RECIPE_SYSROOT_NATIVE}/usr/bin/python3-native/python3.8 \ "

-------------------------------------

 

使用 Toradex Easy Installer 将生成的镜像安装到  Apalis iMX8QM 4GB WB IT V1.1C  Verdin iMX8M Plus Quad 4GB WB IT V1.0B 两个模块上。

 

测试的内容参考 NXP  i.MX_Machine_Learning_User's_Guide 文档进行包括 TensorFlow LiteArm NNONNXPyTorch。由于目前  OpenCV 还只能运行在 iMX8QuadMax   iMX8M Plus  CPU 无法使用 GPU 或者 NPU 加速所以本次不做测试。另外在使用 Arm NN 测试 Caffe 模型时有两个限制。第一batch size 必须为 1。例如  deploy.prototxt 文件修改为

-------------------------------------

name: "AlexNet"

layer {

  name: "data"

  type: "Input"

  top: "data"

  input_param { shape: { dim: 1 dim: 3 dim: 227 dim: 227 } }

}

-------------------------------------

 

第二 Arm NN 不支持所有的 Caffe 语法一些老的神经网络模型文件需要更新到最新的  Caffe 语法。下面是 PC 上用于转换的 Python3 脚本。

-------------------------------------

import caffe

net = caffe.Net('lenet.prototxt', 'lenet_iter_9000-orignal.caffemodel', caffe.TEST)

net.save('lenet_iter_9000.caffemodel')

-------------------------------------

 

在两个模块上测试结果如下。

汇总对比

iMX8MPlus和iMX8QM机器学习框架eIQ性能对比_web12949.png 

根据具体测试应用不同,两者之间的性能差距大小不一。总体来看常用机器学习算法在 Verdin iMX8M Plus 的 NPU 上的表现会优于 Apalis iMX8QM 的 GPU

 

 

总结

机器学习是较为复杂的应用,除了硬件处理器外,影响算法性能表现的还包括对模型本身的优化。尤其是对嵌入式系统有限的处理能力来讲,直接将 PC 上现成的模型拿过来用通常会表现不佳。同时根据项目需求选择合适计算机模块,毕竟 Verdin iMX8M Plus 和 Apalis iMX8QM 的用途侧重点不同。
