Oxford Radar RobotCar Dataset

The Oxford Radar RobotCar Dataset is a radar extension to The Oxford RobotCar Dataset. We provide data from a Navtech CTS350-X Millimetre-Wave FMCW radar and Dual Velodyne HDL-32E LIDARs with optimised ground truth radar odometry for 280 km of driving around Oxford, UK (in addition to all sensors in the original Oxford RobotCar Dataset).

Our radar is a Navtech CTS350-X Millimetre-Wave Frequency-Modulated Continuous-Wave (FMCW) scanning radar and in the configuration used provides 4.38 cm in range resolution and 0.9 degrees in rotation resolution with a range up to 163 m, all whilst providing robustness to weather conditions that may trouble other sensor modalities.

We are excited to share this data with the community and we intend that this dataset will help accelerate research in this interesting modality.
