A large dataset of real-world color objects is now available. It
consists of the object classes "car" (~1800 examples), "signal
board"(~1000 examples)
and "clutter"(~3500 examples). The objects were taken from the
segmentation results of a vision system operating within a moving car
and are thus
biased as well as imperfectly segmented, posing challenges to object
recognition. The data is partitioned into 4 classes of (heuristically
increasing complexity and difficulty.
The dataset consists of images in the standard PPM format and can be
obtained from
