Argo AI is releasing curated data along with high-definition maps to researchers for free, the latest company in the autonomous vehicle industry to open-source some of the information it has captured while developing and testing self-driving cars.

The aim, the Ford Motor-backed company says, is to give academic researchers the ability to study the impact that HD maps have on perception and forecasting, such as identifying and tracking objects on the road, and predicting where those objects will move seconds into the future. In short, Argo sees this as a way to encourage more research and hopefully breakthroughs in autonomous vehicle technology.

Argo - Collection - Data - Maps - Argoverse

Argo has branded this collection of data and maps Argoverse, which is being released for free. Argo isn’t releasing everything it has. This is a curated data set, after all. Still, it’s a large enough batch to give researchers something to dig into and model.

This “Argoverse” contains a selection of data, including two HD maps with lane centerlines, traffic direction and ground height collected on roads in Pittsburgh and in Miami.

Instance - Argoverse - Motion - Forecasting - Data

For instance, Argoverse also has a motion forecasting data set with 3D tracking annotation for 113 scenes and more than 300,000 vehicle trajectories, including unprotected left turns and lane changes, and provides a benchmark to promote...
