MVTec Screws Dataset


The MVTec Screws dataset has been designed for oriented box detection. It contains 384 images of 13 different types of screws and nuts on a wooden background. All objects are labeled by oriented bounding boxes and their respective category. Overall, there are 4,426 of such annotations.


For ease-of-use, the dataset is provided in HALCON's deep learning dataset format (DLDataset dictionary), as well as in a format that is similar to the well-known COCO dataset format (
