Visible-Depth-Thermal Image Dataset
A Novel Visible-Depth-Thermal Image Dataset of Salient Object Detection
|Visual perception plays an important role in industrial information field, especially in robotic grasping application. In order to detect the object to be grasped quickly and accurately, salient object detection (SOD) is employed to the above task. Although the existing SOD methods have achieved impressive performance, they still have some limitations in the complex interference environment of practical application. To better deal with the complex interference environment, a novel triple-modal images fusion strategy is proposed to implement SOD for robotic visual perception, namely visible-depth-thermal (VDT) SOD. Meanwhile, we build an image acquisition system under variable lighting scene and construct a novel benchmark dataset for VDT SOD (VDT-2048 dataset). Multiple modal images will be introduced to assist each other to highlight the salient regions. But, inevitably, interference will also be introduced. In order to achieve effective cross-modal feature fusion while suppressing information interference, a hierarchical weighted suppress interference (HWSI) method is proposed. The comprehensive experimental results prove that our method achieves better performance than the state-of-the-art methods.|

NEU surface defect database
NEU surface defect database
Kechen Song and Yunhui Yan
In the Northeastern University (NEU) surface defect database, six kinds of typical surface defects of the hot-rolled steel strip are collected, i.e., rolled-in scale (RS), patches (Pa), crazing (Cr), pitted surface (PS), inclusion (In) and scratches (Sc). The database includes 1,800 grayscale images: 300 samples each of six different kinds of typical surface defects.
Fig. 1 shows the sample images of six kinds of typical surface defects, the original resolution of each image is 200×200 pixels. From Fig. 1, we can clearly observe that the intra-class defects existing large differences in appearance, for instance, the scratches (the last column) may be horizontal scratch, vertical scratch, and slanting scratch, etc. Meanwhile the inter-class defects have similar aspects, e.g., rolled-in scale, crazing, and pitted surface. In addition, due to the influence of the illumination and material changes, the grayscale of the intra-class defect images is varied. In short, the NEU surface defect database includes two difficult challenges, i.e., the intra-class defects existing large differences in appearance while the inter-class defects have similar aspects, the defect images suffer from the influence of illumination and material changes.
For defect detection task, we provided annotations which indicate the class and location of a defect in each image. We have carefully clicked annotations of each target in these images. Fig. 2 shows some examples of detection results on NEU-DET. For each defect, the yellow box is the bounding box indicating its location and the green label is the class score.
