# TensorFlow Lite Micro for Espressif Chipsets

[![Component Registry](https://components.espressif.com/components/espressif/esp-tflite-micro/badge.svg)](https://components.espressif.com/components/espressif/esp-tflite-micro)

- As per TFLite Micro guidelines for vendor support, this repository has the `esp-tflite-micro` component and the examples needed to use Tensorflow Lite Micro on Espressif Chipsets (e.g., ESP32) using ESP-IDF platform.
- The base repo on which this is based can be found [here.](https://github.com/tensorflow/tflite-micro)

## Build Status

|   Build Type  |  Status    |
| -----------   |  --------- |
| Examples Build | [![CI](https://github.com/espressif/esp-tflite-micro/actions/workflows/ci.yml/badge.svg)](https://github.com/espressif/esp-tflite-micro/actions/workflows/ci.yml)

## How to Install

### Install the ESP IDF

Follow the instructions of the
[ESP-IDF get started guide](https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp-idf/en/latest/get-started/index.html)
to setup the toolchain and the ESP-IDF itself.

The next steps assume that this installation is successful and the
[IDF environment variables are set](https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp-idf/en/latest/get-started/index.html#step-4-set-up-the-environment-variables). Specifically,
* the `IDF_PATH` environment variable is set
* the `idf.py` and Xtensa-esp32 tools (e.g., `xtensa-esp32-elf-gcc`) are in `$PATH`

## Using the component

Run the following command in your ESP-IDF project to install this component:

```bash
idf.py add-dependency "esp-tflite-micro"
```

## Building the example

To get the example, run the following command:

```bash
idf.py create-project-from-example "esp-tflite-micro:<example_name>"
```

Note:
  - If you have cloned the repo, the examples come as the part of the clone. Simply go to the example directory (`examples/<example_name>`) and build the example.

Available examples are:
 - hello_world
 - micro_speech
 - person_detection

Set the IDF_TARGET (For ESP32-S3 target, minimum IDF version `release/v4.4` is needed)

```bash
idf.py set-target esp32s3
```

To build the example, run:

```bash
idf.py build
```

### Load and run the example

To flash (replace `/dev/ttyUSB0` with the device serial port):
```bash
idf.py --port /dev/ttyUSB0 flash
```

Monitor the serial output:
```bash
idf.py --port /dev/ttyUSB0 monitor
```

Use `Ctrl+]` to exit.

The previous two commands can be combined:
```bash
idf.py --port /dev/ttyUSB0 flash monitor
```

  - Please follow example READMEs for more details.

## ESP-NN Integration
[ESP-NN](https://github.com/espressif/esp-nn) contains optimized kernel implementations for kernels used in TFLite Micro. The library is integrated with this repo and gets compiled as a part of every example. Additional information along with performance numbers can be found [here](https://github.com/espressif/esp-nn#performance).

### Performance Comparison

A quick summary of ESP-NN optimisations, measured on various chipsets:

|   Target  |   TFLite Micro Example  | without ESP-NN  | with ESP-NN | CPU Freq  |
| --------- | ----------------------- | --------------- | ----------- |-----------|
| ESP32-S3  |   Person Detection      |     2300ms      |     54ms    |  240MHz   |
| ESP32     |   Person Detection      |     4084ms      |    380ms    |  240MHz   |
| ESP32-C3  |   Person Detection      |     3355ms      |    426ms    |  160MHz   |

Note:
  - The above is time taken for execution of the `invoke()` call
  - Internal memory used

Detailed kernelwise performance can be found [here](https://github.com/espressif/esp-nn).

## Sync to latest TFLite Micro upstream

As per the upstream repository policy, the tflite-lib is copied into the components directory in this repository. We keep updating this to the latest upstream version from time to time. Should you, in any case, wish to update it locally, you may run the `scripts/sync_from_tflite_micro.sh` script.

readme of hello_world example

                                        
                                        # Hello World Example

This example is designed to demonstrate the absolute basics of using [TensorFlow
Lite for Microcontrollers](https://www.tensorflow.org/lite/microcontrollers).
It includes the full end-to-end workflow of training a model, converting it for
use with TensorFlow Lite for Microcontrollers for running inference on a
microcontroller.

The model is trained to replicate a `sine` function and generates a pattern of
data to either blink LEDs or control an animation, depending on the capabilities
of the device.

                                        # Micro Speech Example

This example shows how to run a 20 kB model that can recognize 2 keywords,
"yes" and "no", from speech data.

The application listens to its surroundings with a microphone and indicates
when it has detected a word by displaying data on a screen.

                                        # Person detection example

This example shows how you can use Tensorflow Lite to run a 250 kilobyte neural
network to recognize people in images captured by a camera.  It is designed to
run on systems with small amounts of memory such as microcontrollers and DSPs.
This uses the experimental int8 quantized version of the person detection model.

to setup the toolchain and the ESP-IDF itself.

### Dependencies

This example requires an external component `esp32-camera` which is the submodule of the example.
If you have not cloned current repo with `--recursive` option, please use `git submodule update` to get it cloned.

### Building the example

Set the chip target (For esp32s3 target, IDF version `release/v4.4` is needed):

```
idf.py set-target esp32s3
```

Then build with `idf.py`
```
idf.py build
```

### Load and run the example

To flash (replace `/dev/ttyUSB0` with the device serial port):
```
idf.py --port /dev/ttyUSB0 flash
```

Monitor the serial output:
```
idf.py --port /dev/ttyUSB0 monitor
```

Use `Ctrl+]` to exit.

The previous two commands can be combined:
```
idf.py --port /dev/ttyUSB0 flash monitor
```

### Using CLI for inferencing

Not all dev boards come with camera and you may wish to do inferencing on static images.
This example hence, by default uses static inferencing.
There are 10 [images](static_images/sample_images/README.md) embedded into the application.

  * To run an inferencing you need to type follwing on `idf.py monitor` window:

```
detect_image <image_number>
```
where `<image_number>` is in [0, 9].

The output is person and no_person score printed on the log screen.

  * To switch to camera mode just comment out the following line from [esp_main.h](main/esp_main.h):

  ```
  #define CLI_ONLY_INFERENCE 1
  ```

### Using Display

If you want to use display or your dev board supports it. (ESP-S3-EYE), you can enable it by disabling `CLI_ONLY_INFERENCE` and enabling following macro from `esp_main.h`
```
#define DISPLAY_SUPPORT 1
```

You will need to select appropriate drivers via menuconfig:

`idf.py menuconfig` > `Component Config` > `LCD drivers`

  * When display is enabled, you will see camera feed and `green` color strip. The strip color will change to `red` when a person is detected.
