The CCSAD dataset

Several real-world stereo datasets exist for the development and testing of algorithms in the fields of perception and navigation of autonomous vehicles. However, none of them was recorded in developing countries and therefore they lack the particular characteristics that can be found in their streets and roads, like abundant potholes, speed bumpers and peculiar flows of pedestrians. We introduce a novel dataset that possesses such characteristics. This stereo dataset was recorded from a moving vehicle and contains high resolution stereo images which are complemented with orientation and acceleration data obtained from an IMU, GPS data, and data from the car computer. 

For details on the file structures, please consult Roberto Guzman's master thesis.

We have classified our sequences in four categories: Colonial Town Streets, Urban Streets, Avenues and Small Roads, and  Tunnel Network. Some example frames are shown below. All sequences were recorded in daytime with varying lighting conditions, except for the sequences corresponding to the Tunnel network category, recorded at night. These sequences were recorded in 3 sessions; we provide the calibration data for each of these sessions.

Sample pairs


Some of the zip files are huge (over 6G for some of them). In Linux, we recommend to use the Archive Mounter and to copy the content from the mounted zip file. Below are a few video samples:
