Prerequisite

In order to run the code, your setup has to meet the following minimum requirements (tested versions in parentheses. Other versions might work, too):

  • GCC 4.8.4
    • Eigen (3.x)
    • Boost (1.55 or later)
    • OpenCV (3.2.0 + OpenCV contrib)
    • PCL (1.8.x)

In case these are not installed on your system (eg. you have installed your libs to some weird directory such as /home/DOG/local) you need to set manually OpenCV_DIR, PCL_DIR, EIGEN_INCLUDE_DIRS by editing CMakeCache.txt.

Install

Compiling the code using CMake

  1. mkdir build
  2. cmake ..
  3. make all

Running the tracker

  1. Edit the config %PROJ_DIR%/data/kitti_sample.cfg, set all the paths.
  2. Run the tracker eg. CIWTApp --config %PROJ_DIR%/data/kitti_sample.cfg --start_frame 0 --end_frame 15 --show_visualization_2d --show_visualization_3d
  3. Find a small sample of KITTI tracking dataset in %PROJ_DIR%/data/kitti_sample (left/right camera images, Regionlets detections, calibration files).

Remarks

  • Tracking modes

    • There are two tracking modes, detection and detection_shape (set via --tracking_mode, or set in the config)
    • They perform similarly when evaluating MOTA in image-domain (KITTI eval. protocol), detection_shape provides significantly more precise localization in the 3D space while the detection mode is faster.
  • Data preprocessing

    • The tracker requires disparity maps to run, detection_shape additionally requires 3D segments (eg. generic object proposals, shipped with the tracker).
    • When you run the tracker for the first time, both will be computed on-the-fly, which will significantly slow-down the proc. time.
  • External libraries

  • Etc

    • The tracking framework does not ship a scene-flow estimator (you can get one here https://github.com/vogechri/PRSM)
    • In the paper experiments, we additionally used a scene-flow estimator to obtain velocity estimates of the 3D segments. You can input to the tracker velocity maps via --flow_map_path, but it is not necessary. Tracker will work just fine without it.
  • Run the tracker in release mode (oterwise it will be slow).
