Problems on converting onyx model to IR and xml files


I met some problems on converting yolo_v3.onnx, which is a model to detect object, to IR file and xml files, under the model optimizer of OpenVINO. The error message is shown below.

robot@hero:/opt/intel/openvino/deployment_tools/model_optimizer$ python3 --input_model /home/robot/Downloads/yolov3.onnx 
Model Optimizer arguments:
Common parameters:
	- Path to the Input Model: 	/home/robot/Downloads/yolov3.onnx
	- Path for generated IR: 	/opt/intel/openvino_2020.1.023/deployment_tools/model_optimizer/.
	- IR output name: 	yolov3
	- Log level: 	ERROR
	- Batch: 	Not specified, inherited from the model
	- Input layers: 	Not specified, inherited from the model
	- Output layers: 	Not specified, inherited from the model
	- Input shapes: 	Not specified, inherited from the model
	- Mean values: 	Not specified
	- Scale values: 	Not specified
	- Scale factor: 	Not specified
	- Precision of IR: 	FP32
	- Enable fusing: 	True
	- Enable grouped convolutions fusing: 	True
	- Move mean values to preprocess section: 	False
	- Reverse input channels: 	False
ONNX specific parameters:
Model Optimizer version: 	2020.1.0-61-gd349c3ba4a
[ ERROR ]  Cannot infer shapes or values for node "TFNodes/yolo_evaluation_layer_1/Squeeze".
[ ERROR ]  Trying to squeeze dimension not equal to 1 for node "TFNodes/yolo_evaluation_layer_1/Squeeze"
[ ERROR ]  
[ ERROR ]  It can happen due to bug in custom shape infer function <function Squeeze.infer at 0x7fc4621e4d90>.
[ ERROR ]  Or because the node inputs have incorrect values/shapes.
[ ERROR ]  Or because input shapes are incorrect (embedded to the model or passed via --input_shape).
[ ERROR ]  Run Model Optimizer with --log_level=DEBUG for more information.
[ ERROR ]  Exception occurred during running replacer "REPLACEMENT_ID" (<class 'extensions.middle.PartialInfer.PartialInfer'>): Stopped shape/value propagation at "TFNodes/yolo_evaluation_layer_1/Squeeze" node. 
 For more information please refer to Model Optimizer FAQ (, question #38.

It seems that the model I downloaded from yolo cannot fit the model optimizer of OpenVINO toolkit smoothly. Can I ask what happened from the error message above?


Best regards,

Hi Ting,

This issue is usually observed when the model optimizer is unable infer values or shapes for the node.

Please try to use –input_shape parameter along with the command you have used to optimize the model.
