Datasets for the evaluation of multi-sensor perception in natural environments with challenging conditions

Peynot, Thierry & Scheding, Steven (2009) Datasets for the evaluation of multi-sensor perception in natural environments with challenging conditions. In Workshop on Good Experimental Methodology in Robotics (GEM), Robotics: Science and Systems (RSS), Seattle, WA, USA.


This paper presents large, accurately calibrated and time-synchronised datasets, gathered outdoors in controlled environmental conditions, using an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV), equipped with a wide variety of sensors. It discusses how the data collection process was designed, the conditions in which these datasets have been gathered, and some possible outcomes of their exploitation, in particular for the evaluation of performance of sensors and perception algorithms for UGVs.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
