1st Workshop on Maritime Computer Vision (MaCVi) 2023: Challenge Results
The 1st Workshop on Maritime Computer Vision (MaCVi)|2023 focused on maritime computer vision for Unmanned|Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV),|and organized several subchallenges in this domain: (i) UAV-based Maritime Object Detection, (ii) UAV-based Maritime Object Tracking, (iii) USV-based Maritime Obstacle Segmentation and (iv) USV-based Maritime Obstacle Detection. The subchallenges were based on the SeaDronesSee and MODS|benchmarks. This report summarizes the main findings of the|individual subchallenges and introduces a new benchmark,|called SeaDronesSee Object Detection v2, which extends the|previous benchmark by including more classes and footage.|We provide statistical and qualitative analyses, and assess|trends in the best-performing methodologies of over 130|submissions. The methods are summarized in the appendix.|The datasets, evaluation code and the leaderboard are|publicly available (https://seadronessee.cs.uni-tuebingen.de/macvi).
