The Why – This is a community-driven project, created to increase collaboration between teams and address the never-ending quest for test data. 

During vehicle development, teams need test data to validate and debug the reliability and robustness of their machine vision algorithms. Teams are willing to share data with other teams but a lack of data standardization can often render one team’s data useless to another team, not to mention the absence of an appropriate platform to transfer and access this data at will.

Keeping all this in mind, the three RoboNation university competition communities have joined forces to create the Data Sharing project.

Founding Committee Member

“I had the chance to meet with some of the committee members before joining the committee and I felt the same energy than during the in-person competition, seeing how different teams have the same struggle and how they can always find ideas to push further. And it is the same thing with the committee, we want members who will help other teams to share their knowledge, pushing for more competitiveness.”
