Artificial Intelligence in Transportation Competition

About the Competition

In this competition, participants will be expected to detect objects using pre-recorded footage from a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle). The UAV will represent footage from an aircraft flying in low-altitude including flight maneuvers and images in focus. The footage that will be used for testing purposes during the competition will have been labeled beforehand, and the competitors will be scored for their accuracy of detection within the given time limit. These objects will be of detectable quality as they will be variations of objects available in the footage broadcast during the competition, sample videos and training videos.
