Benchmarking RGB-D Segmentation: Toy Dataset of Complex Crowded Scenes

Aleksi Ikkala, Joni Pajarinen, Ville Kyrki

Abstract

In this paper we present a new RGB-D dataset captured with the Kinect sensor. The dataset is composed of typical children’s toys and contains a total of 449 RGB-D images alongside with their annotated ground truth images. Compared to existing RBG-D object segmentation datasets, the objects in our proposed dataset have more complex shapes and less texture. The images are also crowded and thus highly occluded. Three state-of-the-art segmentation methods are benchmarked using the dataset. These methods attack the problem of object segmentation from different starting points, providing a comprehensive view on the properties of the proposed dataset as well as the state-of-the-art performance. The results are mostly satisfactory but there remains plenty of room for improvement. This novel dataset thus poses the next challenge in the area of RGB-D object segmentation.
