The iLIDS-VID dataset involves 300 different pedestrians observed across two disjoint camera views in public open space. Two versions are contained: static images based (see the folder named "ILIDS-VID\images") and image sequences based (see the folder named "ILIDS-VID\sequences").


This dataset was created from the pedestrians observed in two non-overlapping camera views from the i-LIDS Multiple-Camera Tracking Scenario (MCTS) dataset which was captured at an airport arrival hall under a multi-camera CCTV network. It comprises 600 image sequences of 300 distinct individuals, with one pair of image sequences from two camera views for each person. Each image sequence has variable length ranging from 23 to 192 image frames, with an average number of 73. The iLIDS-VID dataset is very challenging due to clothing similarities among people, lighting and viewpoint variations across camera views, cluttered background and random occlusions. To facilitate the evaluation of single-shot based person re-identification methods on this dataset, we also provided a static images based version by randomly selecting one image from every person image sequence. Benchmarked training/test people splits are provided for fair comparisons across different state-of-the-art methods in the literature.

For downloading this data set, we have assumed that you have the right to access the i-LIDS MCTS scenario. The dataset is intended for research purposes only and as such cannot be used commercially.
