Single Object Tracking

Overview

This competition is designed to push the state-of-the-art in object detection with drone platform forward. Teams are required to predict the bounding boxes of objects of ten predefined classes (i.e., pedestrian, person, car, van, bus, truck, motor, bicycle, awning-tricycle, and tricycle) with real-valued confidences. Some rarely occurring special vehicles (e.g., machineshop truck, forklift truck, and tanker) are ignored in evaluation.

The challenge containing 10,209 static images (6,471 for training, 548 for validation and 3,190 for testing) captured by drone platforms in different places at different height, are available on the download page. We manually annotate the bounding boxes of different categories of objects in each image. In addition, we also provide two kinds of useful annotations, occlusion ratio and truncation ratio. Specifically, we use the fraction of objects being occluded to define the occlusion ratio. The truncation ratio is used to indicate the degree of object parts appears outside a frame. If an object is not fully captured within a frame, we annotate the bounding box across the frame boundary and estimate the truncation ratio based on the region outside the image. It is worth mentioning that a target is skipped during evaluation if its truncation ratio is larger than 50%. Annotations on the training and validation sets are publicly available.



Challenge Guidelines

The object detection evaluation page lists detailed information regarding how submissions will be scored. To limit overfitting while providing researchers more flexibility to test their algorithms, we have divided the test set into two splits, including test-challenge and test-dev.
