Common Shared Data Sets (CSDS)
Teams that are new to the competition or teams with limited access to proper hardware and training areas face the problem that they cannot test their system against typical settings appearing at the competition. Also the comparison of methods or configurations requires an exactly reproducible data stream from all (sensor) inputs. A classical way to cope with this situation is to provide standardised Common Shared Data Sets (CSDS). Standardised CSDS can be used as a mean of comparison and, in fact, they are a good base to accelerate the progress of the state-of-the-art in research.
The euRathlon organisers have published recorded real data sets for euRathlon 2013 and 2015 and some of the teams that participated in euRathlon 2013 and 2014 competitions, kindly agreed on sharing with the community the real data acquired during their participation in some of the scenarios.
Format of CSDS
All CSDS created by the euRathlon organisation are distributed in the ROS bag format. This is the standard log format of the openly available Robot Operating System (ROS). A variety of tools is freely available to get raw sensor information out of recorded ROS bags. See www.ros.org for further details.
The exact composition of sensor devices in a CSDS is scenario-dependent and generally specified.
Note: CSDS provided by teams are in different formats, although most of them are in ROS.
Access and usage of CSDS
The open science driven rules of euRathlon encourage teams to make available to the community the data collected during their performance in the competition.
This repository of Common Shared Data Sets will build a valuable pool for benchmarking, testing and comparison.
The CSDS of euRathlon 2013 land robotics competition, euRathlon 2014 sea competition and euRathlon 2015 combined competition are available to download.
