The number of research papers on 3D pose estimation, and in particular in un-controlled settings has dramatically increased recently. Most papers demonstrate performance qualitatively, showing images and the corresponding 3D body model or stick-figure side by side. Quantitative evaluation is limited to indoor datasets such as H3.6M or Human-Eva, or outdoor datasets with recording volume like MuPoTs-3D. This changed with 3DPW, which constitutes the only dataset with accurate reference 3D poses in natural scenes (e.g., people shopping in the city, having coffee, or doing sports recorded with a moving hand-held camera). While researchers started using this dataset, the evaluation, protocols and sequences differ from paper to paper. This makes comparison of methods difficult. The purpose of this workshop and challenge is to standardize protocols and metrics so that researchers compare their methods in a consistent manner in future publications, ultimately to advance the state of the art in 3D human pose estimation in the wild. The tentative program consists in invited talks and the 3 top performing methods of the 3DPW-Challenge, and a poster session for workshop papers and invited relevant papers from the main conference.
Our Challenge was featured in the in the June Edition of Computer Vision News
For information about tracks, evaluation, and metrics, see 3DPW Challenge.
Paper submission is not mandatory (but encouraged) for participation in the challenge.
The three top performing methods (2 top performing methods in joint position accuracy, and top performing method on part orientation accuracy) will be invited to give a talk at the workshop.
3DPW is collected by using IMUs and hand-held cameras. The hand-held camera is used to capture photographs of the volunteers wearing IMUs as they perform daily activities. The IMUs are used to compute the 3D pose of the volunteers. Each 3D pose is then assigned to detected 2D poses in the image. The method is further detailed in the ECCV'18 paper Recovering Accurate 3D Human Pose in The Wild Using IMUs and a Moving Camera. The dataset can be downloaded from our websiteBelow, you can find the video of the ECCV'18 paper associated with the 3DPW dataset:
Call for papersWe mostly encourage papers on 3D human pose estimation which also participate in the challenge or evaluate on 3DPW using the provided protocols.
We also invite papers in the following areas:
- 3D human pose and shape estimation
- 3D multi-person pose estimation
- 3D human texture completion and clothing reconstruction
- 3D human motion synthesis, prediction and analysis
