Selected datasets for extended and multiple extended target tracking from our measurement campaigns can be now downloaded. The measurements, in form of point clouds, are results of running a blob detection algorithm on radar images captured through the campaign. Together with the radar images, AIS (Automatic Identification System) data has also been provided as reference (ground truth) for each target where available.
The datasets are a result of an intensive cooperation with Prof. Marcus Baum, leader of the Data Fusion Group at the Institute of Computer Science, Georg-August Universität Göttingen (https://www.fusion.informatik.uni-goettingen.de).
The three datasets are available as zip-files, each file contains
If you want to obtain access, please do not hesitate to send a request to Mrs Jaya Shradha Fowdur (Jaya.Fowdur@dlr.de), employee of the Traffic Management Group at the Institute for Communication and Navigation, German Aerospace Center.
As the data-set is under export control: To be able to decide on the data-transmission we would be grateful if you could tell us what will be done with the dataset and who will be the final recipient (in which country). For taking a decision the respective department at DLR probably needs to know the final aim of your work, whether it produces dual goods or similar research / technology. Also, it also needs to know the final recipients of the any possible products of your work.
If you are enrolled with a university please also send your enrolment certificate.
