Testing Images for Car Detection


The image dataset is used by the Object Recognition Using Statistical Modeling Project and is provided for evaluating algorithms for detecting passenger cars in gray-scale imagery. Includes 104 images with 213 cars. This test set was collected at CMU by Henry Schneiderman and Takeo Kanade. Please acknowledge them in publications describing results on this test set.

In [Schneiderman and Kanade, 2000] we refer to this as the car detection test set.
