I-MOVE: Independent Moving Objects for Velocity Estimation

Jonathan Schwan, Akshay Dhamija, Terrance Boult; Proceedings of the IEEE/CVF Winter Conference on Applications of Computer Vision (WACV), 2020, pp. 1101-1110


We introduce I-MOVE, the first publicly available RGB-D/stereo dataset for estimating velocities of independently moving objects. Velocity estimation given RGB-D data is an unsolved problem. The I-MOVE dataset provides an opportunity for generalizable velocity estimation models to be created and have their performance be accurately and fairly measured. The dataset features various outdoor and indoor scenes of single and multiple moving objects. Compared to other datasets, I-MOVE is unique because the RGB-D data and speed for each object are supplied for a variety of different settings/environments, objects, and motions. The dataset includes training and test sequences captured from four different depth camera views and three 4K-stereo setups. The data are also time-synchronized with three Doppler radars to provide the magnitude of velocity ground truth. The I-MOVE dataset includes complex scenes from moving pedestrians via walking and biking to multiple rolling objects, all captured with the seven cameras, providing over 500 Depth/Stereo videos.
