ETHZ Dataset for Appearance-Based Modeling

The experimental results for the paper Learning Discriminative Appearance-Based Models Using Partial Least Squares in SIBGRAPI’2009 (link to the research page) were obtained using the ETHZ dataset, which provides a large number of different people captured in uncontrolled conditions. The video sequences are captured from moving cameras, which provides a range of variations in people’s appearances.

Data Data

We used the ground truth location of people in the video to crop each person, then we created a directory containing samples of each person (p0?? – p0??) for each video sequence. The samples in the directories have the original size, but in our experiments they were resized to 32×64 pixels. In our experiments, we chose one of the samples of each person to learn the appearance-based model and the remaining samples for classification (this procedure was repeated few times and the average was used). The results were given by the overall recognition rate. Next figure shows a few examples of cropped samples contained in the first video sequence of the dataset.
