 VIVID Tracking Evaluation Web Site

Home Datasets Software Submission Results  


The VIVID Tracking Evaluation Web Site was developed to promote sharing and evaluation of algorithms that track objects through video sequences. Development of this page was suggested and sponsored by Dr. Thomas Strat from DARPA IXO, under the Video Verification of Identity (VIVID) program. The initial application of interest is tracking ground vehicles from airborne sensor platforms.

The primary function of this web site is to provide:
1) Ground-truthed tracking data sets;
2) An open-source tracking testbed that includes code for several baseline tracking algorithms;
3) A mechanism for uploading tracking results for automated scoring against ground-truth.

Although users are required to create an account to submit results, no account is necessary to download data sets, the tracking testbed, or to view currently ranked algorithm results.


We grant permission to use and publish all data and results from this site, provided the following paper is referenced:
