SURVEILLANCE

BOSS dataset


Website:

Datasets are available here.

 

Dataset:

 The BOSS project aims at developing an innovative and bandwidth efficient communication system to transmit large data rate communications between public transport vehicles and the wayside. In particular, the BOSS concepts will be evaluated and demonstrated in the context of railway transport. As a matter of fact, security issues, traditionally covered in stations by means of video-surveillance are clearly lacking on-board trains, due to the absence of efficient transmission means from the train to a supervising control centre. Similarly, diagnostic or maintenance issues are generally handled when the train arrives in stations or during maintenance stops, which prevents proactive actions to be carried out.

Dataset include 15 sequences shot by 9 cameras and 8 microphones, all synchronized together to give the possibility of 3D video/audio reconstruction.

In these datasets, we can find the following events:

 - Cell phone theft (in Spanish language). 

 - Check out - a passenger checking out another man's wife, then fighting (in French language).

 - Disease - a series of 3 passengers fainting, alone in the coach (both in French and Spanish).

 - Disease in public (both in French and Spanish).

 - Harass - 3 sequences in which a man harasses a woman. In "Harass2", there are other passengers in the coach.

 - Newspaper - two sequences (one in French, one in Spanish) in which a passenger harasses another passenger for his newspaper, and end up assaulting him.

 - Panic (in French language) - a passenger notices a fire in the next coach, and everybody runs out of the train.

 - Two more sequences are provided, containing no incidents whatsoever. They were shot to assess the robustness of incident detection software to false alarms.

 - Other sequences are provided, which are not acted incidents but were used for specific incident detection tasks.

Metadata:

Events generated by the BOSS processing are given for some sequences, in a file called "nameofthesequence.xml", in the same directory as the data set of the sequence itself. The format and types of the events are described in a PDF files.

Contextual info:

All the sequences were shot in a Madrid suburban train kindly lent by RENFE who are gratefully acknowledged.
In order to allow as much flexibility as possible, all the video files are uncalibrated, the calibration files are provided along with each sequence and the description of how to use them is given in calibTutorial.pdf . An associated Matlab library is provided in BOSScalibTutorial.zip.

EMAV 2009


Website:

Datasets are available here:

http://www.emav09.org/

The objective of the EMAV 2009 (European Micro Aerial Vehicle Conference and Flight Competition) conference is to provide an effective and established forum for discussion and dissemination of original and recent advances in MAV technology. The conference program will consist of a theoretical part and a flight competition. We aim for submission of papers that address novel, challenging and innovative ideas, concepts or systems. We particularly encourage papers that go beyond MAV hardware, and address issues such as the collaboration of multiple MAVs, applications of computer vision, and non-GPS based navigation.

 

Dataset:

For computer vision researchers an image set is published. The set consists of photos taken with various MAV platforms at different locations. The photos are always stills from movies made by the platform. For this EMAV, there is no explicit assignment or competition linked to this data set. However, possible tasks with the data set are: segmentation of the images in meaningful entities, specific object recognition (cars / roads), construction of image mosaics on the basis of the films, etc.

Caltech Pedestrian Dataset


Website:

Datasets are available here:

http://www.vision.caltech.edu/Image_Datasets/CaltechPedestrians/

Dataset:

The Caltech Pedestrian Dataset consists of approximately 10 hours of 640x480 30Hz video taken from a vehicle driving through regular traffic in an urban environment. About 250,000 frames (in 137 approximately minute long segments) with a total of 350,000 bounding boxes and 2300 unique pedestrians were annotated. 

Metadata:

The annotation includes temporal correspondence between bounding boxes and detailed occlusion labels. More information can be found in our CVPR09 paper.

Associated Matlab code is available. The annotations use a custom "video bounding box" (vbb) file format. The code also contains utilities to view seq files with the annotations overlayed, evaluation routines used to generate all the ROC plots in the paper, and also the vbb labeling tool used to create the dataset (a slightly outdated video tutorial of the labeler is also).

CANDELA - Surveillance


Website:

Datasets are available here:

http://www.multitel.be/~va/candela/

Dataset:

Two different scenarios have been relaized during the CANDELA project : "Indoor abandonned object" and "road intersection".

o Scenario 1: Abandoned object. The detection of abandoned objects is more or less the detection of idle (stationary or non-moving) objects that remain stationary over a certain period of time. The period of time is adjustable. In several types of scenes, idle objects should be detected. In a parking lot e.g., an idle object can be a parked car or a left suitcase. For this scenario we are not looking at the object types "person" or "car", but at unidentified objects, called "unknown objects". An unknown object is any object that is not a person or a vehicle. In general, unknown objects cannot move. What should be detected? : Whenever an unknown object appears in the scene and remains stationary for some amount of time person, an alarm needs to be generated. This alarm must remain active, as long as the unknown object remains stationary.

o Scenario 2: Persons are allowed to cross the street at zebra crossings, a crossing controlled with lights. Alarms should be generated when persons are not allowed to be on the crossing, or when dangerous scenarios occur (cars driving when people crossing). Since the external signal from the traffic light is not available (when the crossing is regulated by traffic lights), detection needs to be done automatically. Detection of persons on the crossing itself is pretty easy, but alarms should only be given when persons are on the crossing, and cars are driving.

GavabDB : 3D face database

Website:

Datasets are available here:

http://gavab.escet.urjc.es/recursos_en.html

Dataset:

GavabDB is a 3D face database. It contains 549 three-dimensional images of facial surfaces. These meshes correspond to 61 different individuals (45 male and 16 female) having 9 images for each person. The total of the individuals are Caucasian and their age is between 18 and 40 years old. Each image is given by a mesh of connected 3D points of the facial surface without texture. The database provides systematic variations with respect to the pose and the facial expression. In particular, the 9 images corresponding to each individual are: 2 frontal views with neutral expression, 2 x-rotated views (±30º, looking up and looking down respectively) with neutral expression, 2 y-rotated views (±90º, left and right profiles respectively) with neutral expression and 3 frontal gesture images (laugh, smile and a random gesture chosen by the user, respectively).

3D_RMA : 3D database

Website:

http://www.sic.rma.ac.be/~beumier/DB/3d_rma.html

Dataset:

120 persons were asked to pose twice in front of the system: in Nov 97 (session1) and in January 98 (session2). For each session, 3 shots were recorded with different (but limited) orientations of the head: straight forward / Left or Right / Upward or downard.

Among the 120 people, two thirds consist of students from the same ethnic origins and with nearly the same age. The last third consists of people of the academy, all aged between 20 and 60.

Different problems encountered in the cooperative scenario were taken into account. People sometimes worn their spectacles, sometimes didn't. Beards and moustaches were represented. Some people smiled in some shots. Small up/down and left/right rotations of the head were requested. We regret that only a few (14) women were available.

Actions as Space-Time Shapes

Dataset:

Human action in video sequences can be seen as silhouettes of a moving torso and protruding limbs undergoing articulated motion. We regard human actions as three-dimensional shapes induced by the silhouettes in the space-time volume. We adopt a recent approach by Gorelick et. al. for analyzing 2D shapes and generalize it to deal with volumetric space-time action shapes. Our method utilizes properties of the solution to the Poisson equation to extract space-time features such as local space-time saliency, action dynamics, shape structure and orientation. We show that these features are useful for action recognition, detection and clustering. The method is fast, does not require video alignment and is applicable in (but not limited to) many scenarios where the background is known. Moreover, we demonstrate the robustness of our method to partial occlusions, non-rigid deformations, significant changes in scale and viewpoint, high irregularities in the performance of an action and low quality video.

PLIA2

Dataset:

The researcher was asked to perform a set of common household activities during the four-hour period using a set of instructions. Activities included the following: preparing a recipe, doing a load of dishes, cleaning the kitchen, doing laundry, making the bed, and light cleaning around the apartment. The volunteer determined the sequence, pace, and concurrency of these activities and also integrated additional household tasks. Our intent was to have a short test dataset of a manageable size that could be easily placed on the web without concerns about anonymity. We wanted this test dataset, however, to show a variety of activity types and activate as many sensors as possible, but in a natural way. In addition to the activities above, the researcher searches for items, uses appliances, talks on the phone, answers email, and performs other everyday tasks. The researcher five mobile accelerometers (one on each limb and one on the hip) and a Polar M32 wireless heart rate monitor. The researcher carried an SMT 5600 mobile phone that ran experience sampling software that beeped and presented a set of questions about her activities.

Metadata:

The dataset includes four hours of partially (and soon to be fully) annotated video. The annotation was done using custom annotation software written by Randy Rockinson and Leevar Williams of MIT House_n. This software (called HandLense) is available for researchers to use to study this dataset. [Overview of HandLense and executable]

The annotations include descriptors for body posture, type of activity, location, and social context.

MuHAVi: Multicamera Human Action Video Data

Website:

Datasets are available here:

 http://dipersec.king.ac.uk/MuHAVi-MAS/

Dataset:

Here is collected a large body of human action video (MuHAVi) data using 8 cameras. There are 17 action classes performed by 14 actors. So far we have processed videos corresponding to 7 actors in order to split the actions and provide the JPG image frames. However, we have included some image frames before and after the actual action, for the purpose of background subtraction, tracking, etc. The longest pre-action frames correspond to the actor called Person1. Each actor performs each action several times in the action zone highlighted using white tapes on the scene floor. As actors were amateurs the leader had to interrupt the actors in some cases and ask them to redo the action for consistency. We have used 8 CCTV Schwan cameras located at 4 sides and 4 corners of a rectangular platform. Note that these cameras are not necessarily synchronised. We are working on improving the synchronisation between the images corresponding to different cameras.

Metadata:

Calibration information may be included here in the future. Meanwhile, one can use the patterns on the scene floor to calibrate the cameras of interest.

ViHASi: Virtual Human Action Silhouette Data

Website:

Datasets are available here:

http://dipersec.king.ac.uk/VIHASI/

Dataset:

This dataset provides a large body of synthetic video data generated for the purpose of evaluating different algorithms on human action recognition which are based on silhouettes. The data consist of 20 action classes, 9 actors and up to 40 synchronised perspective camera views. It is well known that for the action recognition algorithms which are purely based on human body masks, where other image properties such as colour and intensity are not used, it is important to obtain accurate silhouette data from video frames. This problem is not usually considered as part of the action recognition, but as a lower level problem in the motion tracking and change detection. Hence for researchers working on the recognition side, access to reliable Virtual Human Action Silhouette (ViHASi)data semmes to be both a necessity and a relief. The reason for this is that such data provide a wat of comprehensive experimentation and evaluation of the methods under study, that might even lead to thier improvments.

Daimler - Pedestrian Dataset

Dataset:

The dataset contains a collection of pedestrian and non-pedestrian images. It is made available for download on this site for benchmarking purposes, in order to advance research on pedestrian classification.

 The dataset consists of two parts:

  • a base data set. The base data set contains a total of 4000 pedestrian- and 5000 non-pedestrian samples cut out from video images and scaled to common size of 18x36 pixels. This data set has been used in Section VII-A of the paper referenced above. 

    Pedestrian images were obtained from manually labeling and extracting the rectangular positions of pedestrians in video images.  Video images were recorded at various (day) times and locations with no particular constraints on pedestrian pose or clothing, except that pedestrians are standing in upright position and are fully visible. As non-pedestrian images, patterns representative for typical preprocessing steps within a pedestrian classification application, from video images known not to contain any pedestrians. We chose to use a shape-based pedestrian detector that matches a given set of pedestrian shape templates to distance transformed edge images (i.e. comparatively relaxed matching threshold).
     
  • additional non-pedestrian images. An additional collection of 1200 video images NOT containing any pedestrians, intended for the extraction of additional negative training examples. Section V of the paper referenced above describes two methods on how to increase the training sample size from these images, and Section VII-B lists experimental results.

Website:

Datasets are available here:

http://www.metaverselab.org/datasets/terrascope/

Dataset:

The dataset consists of nine different cameras, deployed over several different rooms and a hallway in a ``laboratory/office" setting. Several different scenarios were collected from the cameras. A two minute sequence was captured of researchers/staff/visitors going about their daily activities. In addition three different scenarios were scripted so that particular behaviors were exibited in the data.

 During data collection, all cameras wrote raw (uncompressed) data at a resolution of 640x480. All machine clocks were synchonrized via the NTP. In addition to each frame, a timestamp was recorded so that frames can be associated with one another across cameras.

Selected Ground Truth (102 MB) - frames with hand-marked labels of individuals and objects

Scenario 1 (11.8 GB) - “Group Meeting”

Scenario 2 (11.2 GB) - “Group Exit and Intruder”

Scenario 3 (17.4 GB) - “Suspicious Behavior/Theft”

Unscripted Activities (59.6 GB) - natural behavior and activities

Subject Face/Gait Database (101 MB) - face pictures and video of subjects walking in front of the camera

Hereby the eyes ground truth in Viper format of face YaleB database containing 5760 single light source images of 10 subjects each seen under 576 viewing conditions (9 poses x 64 illumination conditions) + 650 viper files. Ground truth developed in the context of CANTATA project, developed by BARCO

Metadata:

All the images are annotated with Viper XML files. Each “.bmp” image is associated with a “.xml” annotation file with the same name, containing the iris positions. The position corresponds to crosses. The path of the bmp image should be changed in the viper file.

Contextual info:

For every subject in a particular pose, an image with ambient (background) illumination was also captured. Hence, the total number of images is in fact 5760+90=5850. The total size of the compressed database is about 1GB.

Comments:

The dataset already exists without the ground truth in Viper format. The ground truth was either generated or converted in Viper format in the context of Cantata project. The metadata were generated by Arnaud Joubel.

Datasets are available here:

http://www.multitel.be/~va/cantata/AntiAliased/index.html

Dataset:

Set of bitmap images containing anti-aliased text in the context of CANTATA project, developed by BARCO. Number of images in the archive (2400 available in the archive)

Metadata:

 All the images are annotated with Viper XML files. Each “.bmp” image is associated with a “.grid.xml” annotation file with the same name. The annotation takes the form of a grid of 32x32 pixels bounding boxes. The path of the bmp image should be changed in the viper file if you want to open it in viper-gt.

Contextual info:

The text is represented in different colors: black on white, white on black, random dark color on white, white on random dark color, black on random light color, random light color on white, random dark color on random light color and, finally, random light color on random dark color.The annotation takes the form of a grid of 32x32 pixels bounding boxes.

TRECVID


The TRECVID conference series is sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) with additional support from other U.S. government agencies. The goal of the conference series is to encourage research in information retrieval by providing a large test collection, uniform scoring procedures, and a forum for organizations interested in comparing their results. In 2001 and 2002 the TREC series sponsored a video "track" devoted to research in automatic segmentation, indexing, and content-based retrieval of digital video. Beginning in 2003, this track became an independent evaluation (TRECVID) with a 2-day workshop taking place just before TREC.

 Datasets are described here.

The USC-SIPI Image Database


The USC-SIPI image database is a collection of digitized images. It is maintained primarily to support research in image processing, image analysis, and machine vision. The first edition of the USC-SIPI image database was distributed in 1977 and many new images have been added since then.

The database is divided into volumes based on the basic character of the pictures. Images in each volume are of various sizes such as 256x256 pixels, 512x512 pixels, or 1024x1024 pixels. All images are 8 bits/pixel for black and white images, 24 bits/pixel for color images. The following volumes are currently available:

  Textures Brodatz textures, texture mosaics, etc.
  Aerials High altitude aerial images
  Miscellaneous Lena, the mandrill, and other favorites
  Sequences Moving head, fly-overs, moving vehicle
