This dataset was collected using a vehicle-mounted standard automotive rear-view display camera for evaluating rear-view pedestrian detection. The production 180 degrees fisheye-lens camera was mounted in the front of the vehicle for safety reasons but in a typical rear-view installation pose: 107cm height and 25 degrees downward tilt angle.
The dataset contains 15 filming sessions, each taken in a different day with different scenarios. Each session contains multiple clips with duration ranging from several seconds to several minutes. In total, the dataset contains 250 clips with a total duration of 76 minutes and over 200K annotated pedestrian bounding boxes. Out of this dataset we release for download here the test portion comprising of 70 of the clips as described in . There are two types of sessions, containing either staged or “in-the-wild” pedestrians. The staged scenarios include mainly pedestrians walking in front of the camera at different positions and directions in a controlled manner, spanning the different use cases of a rear alert or braking automotive feature. In the remaining sessions the vehicle drove either in public roads or in parking lots and captured incidental pedestrians. The different locations include: indoor parking lots, outdoor paved/sand parking lots, city roads and private driveways. We filmed both day and night scenarios, with different weather and lighting conditions.
You'll find a set of checkerboard images taken with the camera, and a calibration result we obtained using the Caltech Calibration Toolbox. Notice some of the checkerboards are on the ground and can be used to estimate the camera to ground pose.
It consists of 6 sets of clips. The videos are saved in the Seq format defined in Piotr's matlab toolbox.
