    Tensorflow on Teensy

    Hi all, I have some exciting news; Tensorflow Lite for Microcontrollers can be run fairly easily on the Teensy!

    For a bit of background, my research centers on music technology and embedded systems, but I had consciously avoided AI/ML for years because it felt too much like a buzzword and not at all aligned with my interests. My mind began to change in the first half of this year, though, with the advent of things like the Sparkfun Edge, Google Coral, and Nvidia Jetson Nano. The SF Edge piqued my interest in particular because microcontrollers are my jam, but I was disappointed by the maturity of software support (e.g. having to drop down almost to assembly to toggle an LED), so I decided to take a shot at porting TFLite to the Teensy in late May 2019.

    Long story short, I succeeded in getting the darn thing to compile, but it was a rough experience; lots of thrashing around with Makefiles, spurious clobbered newlines, and other evils. In the end my proof of concept was to hijack the TF code's main function with a blinking LED loop, showing that at least the function was getting called. Cool, but not very substantive and not well-documented so I'll leave it at that.

    Fast-forward to last week, I took this project off the back burner and decided to try again; things have gotten a lot better since then (TF is always under heavy development)! Here's what I've got so far:

    0) Intro / Caveats

    -> The hello_world example only runs on the T4.0 at the moment, I'm getting a linker error on T3.x which I could use some help from the community on, I'll detail this at the bottom of my post. The micro_speech example, however, runs on the T4.0 as well as the 3.2 and 3.5 (don't have a 3.6 with stacking headers handy at the moment but I'm confident it will work).

    -> We will be modifying code within an Arduino library generated for each TF project. It is simpler initially to download and install the nightly build .zip of each project (hello_world and micro_speech) as described in their respective READMEs, but I had some trouble with the speech example breaking after trying a fresh copy from a few days after my initial success. In the end it's best to clone the entire Tensorflow repo and generate the project .zips from there, again as described in the READMEs; that way one can do a checkout of previous commits in case things get funky. Note that when you unzip this generated library there's a top-level folder labeled 'arduino' which contains a recursive copy of the whole codebase; weird, and I usually just delete it, but it can be safely ignored, the code the library uses is in the top-level 'src' directory.

    -> The existing speech model was trained at 16KHz, so I've had to include code for the T4.0 (from Frank B by way of el_supremo) and for the T3.x to change the sample rate of the Audio Shield to 16KHz. Retraining the model for 44.1KHz is an ugly process which currently includes Docker, building all of TF from source, and *hours* of training time. Yuck. Also 44.1KHz is kinda overkill for speech recognition (but would makes interoperability with the rest of the Audio Library nicer). Would like to streamline this process in the next few weeks.

    1) hello_world (A fading LED):

    To get started, let's look at the hello_world page; a neural network is trained to reproduce the sine function and fade an LED according to it. So the great news is that this runs *out of the box* on the T4.0, but when I first ran it the LED seemed solidly illuminated. What gives? Well, in a moderately hilarious twist, it's because the T4.0 is much faster than the reference platform (the just-released Nano 33 BLE Sense, Cortex-M4F @64MHz), so terrifyingly fast that it's fading faster than the eye can see! It seems the TF authors neglected to include any throttling to limit the rate at which the neural network actually reports results.

    The solution is to simply add a delay(1) at the end of the HandleOutput function in hello_world/src/tensorflow/lite/experimental/micro/examples/hello_world/arduino/output_handler.cpp :

    #include "Arduino.h"
    #include "tensorflow/lite/experimental/micro/examples/hello_world/constants.h"
    // The pin of the Arduino's built-in LED
    int led = LED_BUILTIN;
    // Track whether the function has run at least once
    bool initialized = false;
    // Animates a dot across the screen to represent the current x and y values
    void HandleOutput(tflite::ErrorReporter* error_reporter, float x_value,
                      float y_value) {
      // Do this only once
      if (!initialized) {
        // Set the LED pin to output
        pinMode(led, OUTPUT);
        initialized = true;
      // Calculate the brightness of the LED such that y=-1 is fully off
      // and y=1 is fully on. The LED's brightness can range from 0-255.
      int brightness = (int)(127.5f * (y_value + 1));
      // Set the brightness of the LED. If the specified pin does not support PWM,
      // this will result in the LED being on when y > 127, off otherwise.
      analogWrite(led, brightness);
      // Log the current brightness value for display in the Arduino plotter
      error_reporter->Report("%d\n", brightness);
      delay(1); // Slow things down a bit
    This limits the speed of the mod to yield a reasonable, visually-apparent sinusoidal fading of the LED.

    2) micro_speech (Speech recognition of "yes" and "no"):

    As described in the README, this demonstrates how to run a model which recognizes keywords from an incoming audio stream. I'm using an electret microphone soldered to a Rev B Audio Shield, with a breadboard for the necessary pin rerouting when using the T4.0.

    Fortunately the TF authors have done a good job on modularity, so on the T4.0 all the necessary changes live in one file: micro_speech/src/tensorflow/lite/experimental/micro/examples/micro_speech/arduino/audio_provider.cpp :

    The code makes the builtin LED flicker as it's listening, and it lights up solid for 3 seconds if it hears the word "yes". More info is available in the Arduino Serial Monitor (i.e. recognized "no", unknowns, timestamps, etc.); I'm currently getting a lot of 'Couldn't push_back latest result, too many already!' messages, but I suspect this is largely a limitation of the current model and its handrolled queue data structure, not the fault of the Teensy (although the prodigious speed of T4.0 might be exacerbating things).

    For the T3.x, two additional changes must be made:
    a) The builtin LED on pin 13 cannot be used because it's the I2S RX pin on the Audio Shield. The LED can be changed by modifying micro_speech/src/tensorflow/lite/experimental/micro/examples/micro_speech/arduino/command_responder.cpp, I've omitted the code here for brevity since it's a rather simple change but can share if anyone wants.
    b) Template argument deduction fails (double-float mismatch) in a call to std::min() in micro_speech/src/tensorflow/lite/kernels/internal/quantization_util.cpp on line 291. The fix is to do a static_cast<double> to both args, as follows:

    // const double input_beta_real_multiplier = std::min(
    //     beta * input_scale * (1 << (31 - input_integer_bits)), (1ll << 31) - 1.0);
      const double input_beta_real_multiplier = std::min(
          static_cast<double>(beta * input_scale * (1 << (31 - input_integer_bits))),
          static_cast<double>((1ll << 31) - 1.0));
    I've included a .zip of the example with all the necessary changes if anyone would like to take it for a spin without diving headfirst into wrangling with TF itself.

    3) The T3.x Linker Error:

    As I mentioned, I'm getting an error with the hello_world example when compiling for the T3.x (MacOS Mojave 10.14.6, Arduino 1.8.9, Teensyduino 1.47). After adding the aforementioned delay(1) and std::min() casts, I get the following error:

    Error compiling for board Teensy 3.2 / 3.1.
    From the poking around I've done on the PJRC forums and elsewhere, it seems like sometimes this has to do with printf() stuff, but this doesn't make sense because the much more complex micro_speech example is printing to the serial port just fine on T3.x. So is there some subtle bug buried within the compiler flags that would cause this behavior on T3.x but not T4.0? Note I've also tried downgrading Arduino to 1.8.7, and/or Teensyduino to 1.46 which didn't give me these issues during my initial efforts back in May. I've included a .zip of the example which reproduces this issue. Any ideas?

    4) Future Directions

    This is all very exciting, but there's still work to be done. For one thing, speech recognition accuracy is not that great on the T3.x, I suspect it may take some tweaking of the model's thresholding and averaging strategies to get rid of chattering duplicate results and missed commands. For another thing, for portability the FFT routines being used do not take advantage of any of the DSP accelerations available in ARM. There's some talk in the TFLite README of how to make target optimized kernels using CMSIS-NN, but a cursory try at building and running a library generated this way did not seem to yield any improved results, I'll have to dig deeper.

    Needless to say, Tensorflow is a comprehensive general purpose framework, so it's fertile ground for many AI/ML applications outside speech recognition; the robustness and maturity of the Teensy ecosystem may prove invaluable for some of these efforts. Thank you Paul and the entire PJRC community!
