Towards involving the convolutional neural networks into the object detection field, many computer vision tasks have achieved favorable successes. In order to adapt targets with various scales, deep feature pyramid is widely used, since the traditional object detection methods detect different objects in Gaussian image pyramid. However, due to the mismatching between the anchors and the feature distributions of targets, the accurate detection for targets with various scales is still a challenge. Considering the differences between the theoretical receptive field and effective receptive field, we propose a novel anchor generation method, which takes the effective receptive field as the standard. The proposed method is evaluated on the PASCAL VOC dataset and shows the favorable results.
