SHREC 2015 Track


3D Shape Retrieval Contest using the Driver's Motion Depth DataBase

The DMDDB 3D Shape Retrieval Contest is organized as part of the SHREC'15 Contest. The general objective of the 3D Shape Retrieval Contest is to evaluate the effectiveness of 3D-shape retrieval algorithms. SHREC'15 is the tenth edition of the contest.

The Challenge

Find where the arms are! In the given database of depth/range image sequences detect the locations of the arms of the depicted drivers. The data are given as sequences of 2D depth frames (320x240 pixels recorded using the Kinect sensor). For each input frame you need to create an output frame of same size that contains the labels: RIGHT_ARM=1, LEFT_ARM=2, OTHER=0. You need to identify all the pixels that correspond to the arms from the shoulders down to the wrists.
