The i.c.sens Visual-Inertial-LiDAR Dataset is a data set for the evaluation of dead reckoning or SLAM approaches in the context of mobile robotics. It consists of street-level monocular RGB camera images, a front-facing 180┬░ point cloud, angular velocities, accelerations and an accurate ground truth trajectory. In total, we provide around 77 GB of data resulting from a 15 minutes drive, which is split into 8 rosbags of 2 minutes (10 GB) each. Besides, the intrinsic camera parameters and the extrinsic transformations between all sensor coordinate systems are given. Details on the data and its usage can be found in the provided documentation file.

The data set was acquired in the context of the measurement campaign described in Schoen2018. Here, a vehicle, which can be seen below, was equipped with a self-developed sensor platform and a commercially available Riegl VMX-250 Mobile Mapping System. This Mobile Mapping System consists of two laser scanners, a camera system and a localization unit containing a highly accurate GNSS/IMU system.

The data acquisition took place in May 2019 during a sunny day in the Nordstadt of Hannover (coordinates: 52.388598, 9.716389). The route we took can be seen below. This route was completed three times in total, which amounts to a total driving time of 15 minutes.

The self-developed sensor platform consists of several sensors. This dataset provides data from the following sensors: Velodyne HDL-64 LiDAR, LORD MicroStrain 3DM-GQ4-45 GNSS aided IMU, Pointgrey GS3-U3-23S6C-C RGB camera.
