<jats:p>Most high-performance semantic segmentation networks are based on complicated deep convolutional neural networks, leading to severe latency in real-time detection. However, the state-of-the-art semantic segmentation networks with low complexity are still far from detecting objects accurately. In this paper, we propose a real-time semantic segmentation network, RecepNet, which balances accuracy and inference speed well. Our network adopts a bilateral architecture (including a detail path, a semantic path and a bilateral aggregation module). We devise a lightweight baseline network for the semantic path to gather rich semantic and spatial information. We also propose a detail stage pattern to store optimized high-resolution information after removing redundancy. Meanwhile, the effective feature-extraction structures are designed to reduce computational complexity. RecepNet achieves an accuracy of 78.65% mIoU (mean intersection over union) on the Cityscapes dataset in the multi-scale crop and flip evaluation. Its algorithm complexity is 52.12 GMACs (giga multiply–accumulate operations) and its inference speed on an RTX 3090 GPU is 50.12 fps. Moreover, we successfully applied RecepNet for blue-green algae real-time detection. We made and published a dataset consisting of aerial images of water surface with blue-green algae, on which RecepNet achieved 82.12% mIoU. To the best of our knowledge, our dataset is the world’s first public dataset of blue-green algae for semantic segmentation.</jats:p>
