Marine Obstacle Detection Dataset

Modd image.jpg

Overview

This dataset contains marine videos, captured by unmanned surface vehicle (USV). The challenge, posed by this dataset, is to segment each image into three natural regions: the sky, the shore and the sea, and furthermore, detect obstacles in the sea area.

Modd v2.0 datast [NEW!]

Multimodal marine obstacle detection dataset (MODD v2) - This dataset contains marine videos, captured by unmanned surface vehicle (USV). The challenge, posed by this dataset, is to segment each image into three natural regions: the sky, the shore and the sea, and furthermore, detect obstacles in the sea area.
