Understanding the YOLOv7 Model Structure

Learn about the basic architecture of YOLOv7.

YOLOv7 architecture is based on previous YOLO architectures of YOLOv4, YOLO-R, and scaled YOLOv4. YOLOv7 outperforms both convolution-based and transformer-based OD models.

What makes YOLOv7 more efficient?

The new model architecture focuses on two important aspects of a model:

  • Architecture optimization

  • Training process optimization (to improve the accuracy of detections without increasing the inference cost)

Architecture summary

YOLOv7 is designed to predict bounding boxes more accurately than the previous versions while maintaining the inference speed.
