An integral part of the workshop are the four challenges UAV Object Detection & Tracking and USV Obstacle Segmentation & Detection. These challenges aim to
foster the development of computer vision algorithms in SaR missions and autonomous boat navigation, respectively. The UAV Object Detection & Tracking challenge is mainly based on
an updated version of SeaDronesSee whereas the USV Obstacle Segmentation & Detection is based on the MODS benchmark.
The focus of all challenges will be on accuracy (algorithm performance as measured by challenge-specific evaluation metrics),
but require participants to submit the processing speed of their algorithms in frames per second, and specification of the hardware used.
The best three teams of each (sub-)track will be featured as co-authors in a challenge summary workshop proceeding
(included in IEEE Xplore) upon submitting a short technical report (half page)
describing their method. We reserve the right to cancel a subchallenge if less than four separate teams (no collusion allowed) participate.
Note the short deadline
for the technical report.
