FPDS Dataset


Here we release the new version of Fallen People Data Set (FPDS), a novel benchmark for detecting fallen people lying on the floor. It consists of 6982 images, with a total of 5023 falls and 2275 non falls corresponding to people in conventional situations (standing up, sitting, lying on the sofa or bed, walking, etc). Almost all the images have been captured in indoor environments with very different situations: variation of poses and sizes, occlusions, lighting changes, etc.

Best practice: Recommendations on using the dataset

FPDS dataset is divided into three dataset: training, validation and test. Any approach reporting results for the FPDS bechmark must be trained using any data except the provided test images. Furthermore, the test data must be used strictly for reporting of results alone - it must not be used in any way to train or tune systems, for example by running multiple parameter choices and reporting the best results obtained. For that purpose we recommend to use the training and validation sets which are provided on the same package.
