FRHT Dataset

FRHT Dataset

1.    Overview

FRHT dataset is established for studying full 360-degree out-of-plane rotation head single tracking. Overall, this dataset contains 50 sequences with 28,247 annotated bounding boxes of frames and expresses the diverse head movements in real-world conditions. FRHT is captured from Internet with a wide variety of scenes (e.g. street, sea, gymnasium, stage, grassland, ice rink) and activities (e.g. running, cycling, surfing, dancing, skating, flying). Naturally, it covers the most challenges of visual tracking problem annotated.

2.    Data organization

Collection setup

Full sequences are collected from real-world videos in the public video websites (YouTube, Instagram, Meipai). The addresses of YouTube sources are contained in the dataset package.

In the package, each sequence with the certain scenario is an identified folder as activity_name + id_number.


The FRHT dataset is annotated using the following rules.

(1) All head poses from the front to the back are annotated; (2) For the front, the bounding box goes vertically from the chin to the forehead, and horizontally from one ear to the other or the nose depending on the pose; (3) For the backend, the bottom line of the bounding box is demarcated at the top of the neck; (4) Particularly, in the case that the ear and neck are not completely visible due to occlusion, we determine the bounding box according to the relative position of the eyes or shoulders.

Each row in the ground-truth files represents the bounding box of the target in that frame, (x, y, box-width, box-height).
