KAIST Radar-LIDAR Dataset

Concurrently to this release another Navtech Radar Dataset was submitted to the
ICRA 2019 Workshop on Dataset Generation and Benchmarking of SLAM Algorithms for Robotics and VR/AR.

Although significantly smaller in size than our release, the comparable setups should provide a great opportunity for cross validating approaches between datasets in different geographic locations.

If the reader was not aware of this data we would advise they have a look at their dataset which can be found at:
