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

More information can be found in this PDF file.


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.

Please note that our dataset is hosted on an FTP server. You need a browser that supports the File Transfer Protocol (e.g. Mozilla Firefox) or an FTP client software to download them.


Here, you soon will find a list of all previous results.


While the base package contains a few ground truth poses, most poses are kept confidential to allow a fair comparison between different methods. To evaluate your results, please write them in the format described in the “result.txt” file of the base package, which also contains examples. The results essentially contain:

  • Meta information about your method
  • A list of rigid 3D transformations with all detections

To evaluate your results, pack all text files into a ZIP file and upload it in the form below. The results will be evaluated against the ground truth and sent back to you. Optionally, the results can be included in the result list.
