DIPLODOC road stereo sequence - dataset

DIPLODOC road stereo sequence contains a labeled road stereo sequence taken from an in-vehicle camera for evaluation of road detection algorithms.

The sequence consists of 865 image pairs taken from a stereo camera mounted on a moving vehicle.  You can use these images to benchmark your stereo algorithm for road segmentation and obstacle detection.
The road region is manually segmented and it is proposed as ground truth for performance evaluation of road detection algorithms.
The sequence is the composition of five subsequences, each of them presenting very different traffic and road conditions: from highway-like roads to urban scenarios with crossroads, parking lots and complex environment; from congested traffic to completely free road.
The images were captured on July, 16 2004, about 11 a.m., near Trento, ITALY.

The acquisition device is a Videre Design MEGA-D stereo camera pair installed near the rearview mirror. The sequence is 15 fps, 320x240, color. The images are saved in a lossless format (PNG) without any pre-processing.
The stereo pair is calibrated with the SVS software and the camera parameters are included in the downloadable file.
