1) Fisheye video dataset for vehicle classification

The dataset consists of more than 100 .avi files and can be downloaded as rar files (~200 MB each) using the link given here.
Videos containing cars, vans, motorcycles or pedestrians. Some videos contain more than one object (some with occlusions), they are mentioned in the spreadsheet provided.

2) Catadioptric camera video dataset for vehicle classification

The dataset can be downloaded via three different zip files using the links given below.
Set 1: contains 124 videos for cars (in 5 parts, ~270 MB each).
Set 2: contains 104 videos for vans (minibus) (in 4 parts, ~290 MB each).
Set 3: contains 49 videos for motorcycles (in 2 parts, ~270 MB each).

For each video the following data is included in the zip files: i) the video itself (avi format), ii) the foreground mask of each frame obtained with background subtraction, iii) the foreground mask of each frame containing the vehicle, iv) annotated area covered by the vehicle (to be used as groundtruth) while vehicle is at the closest point to the camera.

3) Omnidirectional and panoramic image dataset (with annotations) to be used for human and car detection

Dataset 1 (37 MB) contains 30 omnidirectional images to detect (standing) humans (66 annotated instances) and 50 omnidirectional images to detect (side-view) cars (65 annotated instances).
Dataset also contains panoramic images converted from the omnidirectional ones. Annotations are provided in three sets: i) rectangular bounding boxes sliding and rotating around image center for omnidirectional images, ii) proposed (dough-nut slice) annotations for omnidirectional images, iii) standard (up-right) bounding box annotations for panoramic images.

Dataset 2 (5 MB) contains synthetic catadioptric omnidirectional images which are formed by projecting perspective images to a 'defined' omnidirectional camera. One set projects 210 perspective images from INRIA person dataset, the other one projects 466 car side-views from UIUC and Darmstadt perspective image datasets.

4) Panoramic image dataset (with annotations) to be used for car detection

Dataset (5MB) contains i) 25 para-catadioptric images, ii) 50 cylindrical panoramic images obtained from the catadioptric images (25 original and 25 mirrored), annotations for cars in those images, iii) 50 spherical panoramic images obtained from the catadioptric images, annotations for cars in those images.

5) Image datasets to be used in studies on hybrid structure-from-motion and omnidirectional camera calibration

catadioptric fisheye perspective

· Hybrid Set 1: A perspective and a catadioptric omnidirectional camera (together with camera parameters and calibration images).
· Hybrid Set 2: An omnidirectional camera and some frames (approx. 1/sec.) from a perspective footage (with camera parameters and calibration images).
· Hybrid Set 3: A perspective, a fisheye and a para-catadioptric omnidirectional camera (together with camera parameters and calibration images).
· Hybrid Set 4: A perspective and a catadioptric omnidirectional camera (together with camera parameters and calibration images).
· Hyperbolic Calibration Set: A set of calibration images for a catadioptric camera with an hyperbolic mirror (NeoVision H3S).

Note: Some of the above sets are available in bitmap format (on request).
