Dense Reconstruction Dataset

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MSWTKBMNeE   In practice, we found dense reconstructions are the most complete and highest quality (with our mobile robotics platform) when fusing data from multiple Velodyne, SICK LMS- 151, and stereo cameras using our own datasets. We are releasing such a dataset to provide a realistic mobile-robotics platform with a variety of sensors—a [...]
