Professor Ghassan Alregib’s team was been selected to be the team hosting and running the IEEE VIP Cup in 2017 on “Traffic Sign Detection under Challenging Conditions.” The topic is at the intersection of autonomous vehicles and machine learning. Not only it is attractive to the industry and the research communities but also the undergraduate students; the main goal is to get the UG students engaged with cutting-edge technologies. One of the side products is an open source dataset that has labeled ground truth data to test the vision algorithms under practical and real weather conditions, which have been missing in the publicly existing algorithms built for autonomous vehicles.
- The competition was announced today on the IEEE SPS website: https://signalprocessingsociety.org/get-involved/video-image-processing-cup.
- All the updates, the details, the datasets, and related info., are on the team website at https://ghassanalregib.com/vip-cup/.
