Venturi Mountain

VENTURI Mountain Dataset is a collection of 12 outdoor sequences, each of them enriched with carefully verified Ground Truth (GT) data.

All of the sequences were acquired using the same mobile device, a Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc S, equipped with Android 2.3.4. Each sequence includes the following captured data:

  • The video stream (mp4, 640×480) and the timestamp of its first frame.

  • A timestamped dump of the on-board accelerometer (BMA150).

  • A timestamped dump of the device’s orientation (from SensorManager.getOrientation()).

During a two-week stage two high-school visionARi students contributed to manually label the point correspondences learning the importance of ground-truth as a rigorous tool for the development of algorithms and the performance measure comparisons, as well as to present their work. Thanks to Fabiana Mori (Liceo Scientifico Galilei, Trento) and Jacopo Strapparava (Liceo Classico Prati, Trento), under the supervision of Michele Zanin (FBK), in June 2012.

Disclaimer: The VENTURI Mountain Dataset was created inside the European funded project VENTURI. You are free to use it, but we would appreciate it if you would include a reference to its source in any derived work and publication you write.
