The Waymo Open Dataset is comprised of high resolution sensor data collected by Waymo self-driving cars in a wide variety of conditions. We are releasing this dataset publicly to aid the research community in making advancements in machine perception and self-driving technology.
The Waymo Open Dataset currently contains lidar and camera data from 1,000 segments (20s each). We plan to continuously grow this dataset. Here is what is currently included:
This data is licensed for non-commercial use. You can find the license agreement here.
While this dataset is not reflective of the full capabilities of our sensor system and is only a fraction of the data on which Waymo’s self-driving system is trained, we believe that for research purposes this large, diverse and high-quality dataset is extremely valuable.
Check out our paper, Scalability in Perception for Autonomous Driving: Waymo Open Dataset, for additional details on scale, diversity, and object detection and tracking baselines.
Waymo Open Dataset includes a wide variety of places, objects and weather conditions.
