A category-level 3-D object dataset: Putting the Kinect to work


Recent proliferation of a cheap but quality depth sensor, the Microsoft Kinect, has brought the need for a challenging category-level 3D object detection dataset to the fore. We review current 3D datasets and find them lacking in variation of scenes, categories, instances, and viewpoints. Here we present our dataset of color and depth image pairs, gathered in real domestic and office environments. It currently includes over 50 classes, with more images added continuously by a crowd-sourced collection effort. We establish baseline performance in a PASCAL VOC-style detection task, and suggest two ways that inferred world size of the object may be used to improve detection. The dataset and annotations can be downloaded at http://www.kinectdata.com.
