About the Dataset

Deep learning-based methods for video pedestrian detection and tracking require large volumes of training data to achieve good performance.

However, data acquisition in crowded urban environments raises data privacy concerns, as we are not allowed to simply record and store data without the explicit consent of all participants. Furthermore, the annotation of such data for computer vision applications usually requires a substantial amount of manual effort, especially in the video domain. Labeling instances of pedestrians in highly crowded scenarios can be challenging even for human annotators and may introduce errors in the training data.

To this end, we generate PREVUE Synth Dataset, a large, highly diverse synthetic dataset for pedestrian detection and tracking using a rendering game engine.
