SBM-RGBD Challenge @ RGBD2017
The aim of the SBM-RGBD Challenge, organized in conjunction with the Workshop on
Background Learning for Detection and Tracking from RGBD Videos
is to evaluate and compare scene background modelling methods for moving object detection on RGBD videos of the
(updated on July 13th, 2017).
Researchers from both academia and industry are invited to test their moving object detection algorithms on the SBM-RGBD dataset
and to report their results in order to participate to the Challenge (see Instructions below).
Results from all submissions that meet certain minimum quality standards will be reported and maintained in the
Challenge Results webpage.
The winners are the authors of the SCAD algorithm, described in the paper:
T. Minematsu, A. Shimada, H. Uchiyama and R.-i. Taniguchi, Simple Combination of Appearance and Depth for Foreground Segmentation, in S. Battiato, G. Gallo, G.M. Farinella, M. Leo (Eds), New Trends in Image Analysis and Processing-ICIAP 2017 Workshops, Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Springer, 2017.
Deadline to submit results The Challenge is now closed, but you can still submit your results with the below procedure to be added into the
Challenge Results webpage.
Instructions for prospective participants
- Results can be reported for one, multiple, or all
Video categories of the SBM-RGBD dataset. However, in any category, results must be reported for all sequences in that category.
- Only one set of tuning parameters should be used for all videos.
- Numerical scores can be computed using the provided
These scripts take the output produced by an algorithm, the ground truth, and a region-of-interest mask
(see SBM-RGBD dataset - download)
and compute the performance metrics described in
SBM-RGBD dataset - Performance evaluation.
- In order for method results to be reported among the SBM-RGBD Challenge results, please follow these steps:
- Download videos to your computer from
SBM-RGBD dataset - Video categories
(Please, make sure you download the latest version).
- Run your algorithm on each video of the downloaded categories.
For each video, put the resulting binary images in the corresponding directory of "results" folder
- The resulting images must be black-and-white (Black = 0, White = 255) images in .png format.
- There must be 1 binary image for each frame included in the temporal range specified in the file temporalROI.txt
(see SBM-RGBD dataset - download).
- The name of the files containing the resulting binary images must comply to the following standard: "bin" + 6 digit numbers + ".png", ex: bin000023.png.
When ready to submit results, zip the "results" folder and send a
WeTransfer link to it to firstname.lastname@example.org, also providing the following information:
- The "results" folder must have the structure provided in results.zip. Please don't put other folders in the "results" folder.
- The "results" folder must contain the results for every video sequence of one (or more) category.
Information on the tested method:
- First Name (ex. John)
- Last Name (ex. Smith)
- E-Mail address (ex. email@example.com)
- University or Company (ex. University of Oxford)
- Short name/Acronym (ex. MotionTech)
- Project web site, if any (ex. www.motionTech.org)
- Method's parameters (ex. alpha = 0.001, beta=10, W=400)
- Processing time (ex. ~15 fps for a 720x480 video with Matlab code running on a core i5 laptop)
- Reference to paper, if any (ex. J. Smith "A new motion detection method called motionTech". In IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, 15(1):1168-1177, 2006)
