What causes object detection in video to be less accurate than it is in still images? Because some video frames have degraded in appearance from fast movement, out-of-focus camera shots, and changes in posture. These reasons have made video object detection (VID) a growing area of research in recent years. Video object detection can be used for various healthcare applications, such as detecting and tracking tumors in medical imaging, monitoring the movement of patients in hospitals and long-term care facilities, and analyzing videos of surgeries to improve technique and training. Additionally, it can be used in telemedicine to help diagnose and monitor patients remotely. Existing VID techniques are based on recurrent neural networks or optical flow for feature aggregation to produce reliable features which can be used for detection. Some of those methods aggregate features on the full-sequence level or from nearby frames. To create feature maps, existing VID techniques frequently use Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) as the backbone network. On the other hand, Vision Transformers have outperformed CNNs in various vision tasks, including object detection in still images and image classification. We propose in this research to use Swin-Transformer, a state-of-the-art Vision Transformer, as an alternative to CNN-based backbone networks for object detection in videos. The proposed architecture enhances the accuracy of existing VID methods. The ImageNet VID and EPIC KITCHENS datasets are used to evaluate the suggested methodology. We have demonstrated that our proposed method is efficient by achieving 84.3% mean average precision (mAP) on ImageNet VID using less memory in comparison to other leading VID techniques.
