What is PyDriver?
PyDriver is a Python (2.7, 3.x) framework for training and evaluating object detectors and classifiers in road traffic environment. It aims at researchers experimenting with learning based 3D object detection, classification and tracking.
What can I do with PyDriver?

PyDriver helps you with following tasks:

  • read data from standard datasets (currently integrated: KITTI)
  • reconstruct 3D scene from stereo images, detect/remove ground plane, restrict viewport etc.
  • detect 3D keypoints and extract 3D feature descriptors
  • train classifiers available in scikit-learn (support vector machines, decision trees and many more)
  • visualize point clouds, extracted keypoints and detections using Point Cloud Library
  • evaluate produced detections with respect to dataset ground truth

Of course, you can write your own modules and enhancements such as interfaces to your custom dataset or implement novel feature descriptors. The point of PyDriver is to provide a basic pipeline for object detection which you can enhance with your own algorithms without reimplementing the routine stuff.

Which licence does PyDriver use?
PyDriver is subject to the MIT licence.

History
The project emerged from a student research project ("Studienarbeit") at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The thesis written in German is available here: PyDriver: Entwicklung eines Frameworks für räumliche Detektion und Klassifikation von Objekten in Fahrzeugumgebung. The publicly available PyDriver releases are missing some of the original features (so that PyDriver can be distributed under the MIT licence) but can still be used to reproduce the published results.
