Autonomous Driving Research


Overview

Autonomous Driving has become one of the most anticipated technologies in both industry and academic research groups. Most of the current efforts in autonomous driving have found success in idealistic conditions such as sparse and homogeneous traffic on highways and urban areas. The GAMMA group, instead, aims to advance autonomous driving research in highly dense and heterogeneous traffic conditions that characterizes social and psychological aspects of human drivers in uncertain environments.

Datasets

  • TRAF Dataset: We provide a dataset of dense and heterogeneous traffic videos. The dataset consists of the following road-agent categories – car, bus, truck, rickshaw, pedestrian, scooter, motorcycle, and other roadagents such as carts and animals. Overall, the dataset contains approximately 13 motorized vehicles, 5 pedestrians and 2 bicycles per frame, respectively. Annotations were performed following a strict protocol and each annotated video file consists of spatial coordinates in pixels, an agent ID, and an agent type. The dataset is categorized according to camera viewpoint (front-facing/top-view), motion (moving/static), time of day (day/evening/night), and difficulty level. The dataset consists of RGB videos with 720p resolution.


Software

  • TrackNPred: TrackNPred consists of implementations of state-of-the-art tracking and trajectory prediction methods and tools to benchmark and evaluate them on real-world dense traffic datasets.

  • Behavior-Driven Traffic Simulator: A traffic simulation software based on SUMO that incorporates driver behavior.
