MVTec Industrial 3D Object Detection Dataset (MVTec ITODD)

A Dataset for 3D Object Recognition in Industry

Dataset for 3D object recognition


The MVTec Industrial 3D Object Detection Dataset (MVTec ITODD) is a public dataset for 3D object detection and pose estimation with a strong focus on industrial settings and applications.

The dataset consists of

  • 28 objects and 3500 labeled scenes containing instances of these objects
  • Five sensors (two 3D sensors and three grayscale cameras) observing each scene

The MVTec ITODD dataset is now one of the datasets of the BOP (Benchmark for 6D Object Pose Estimation) challenge.

Download the MVTec ITODD Dataset

Due to the size of the files, the download is split into multiple parts. All parts can be extracted into the same directory. The base package must be downloaded. Depending on which modalities your method operates on, the other packages can be downloaded as required.

Note that an evaluation on all data is preferred. For example, a method that uses 3D input data should be evaluated on both the high quality and the low quality 3D data, while a method that works on image data should be evaluated on all three cameras. However, you can also evaluate only on selected data, which will be mentioned in the result list and should be noted in any publication.

  • Base Package (required): Contains the CAD models, calibration information, a few ground truth poses, and other information. This package always must be downloaded. Download Base Package (150 MB)
  • 2D Grayscale Images: Contains the images taken with the three grayscale cameras. Two images were taken with each: One with and one without a projected pattern that can be used, for example, for stereo reconstruction. Additionally, each image is provided in both its original form, which has optical distortions, and a rectified form.

If you have any questions or comments about the dataset, feel free to contact us via the form.
