High Resolution Moth Flight (HRMF) Dataset



Sample images from the HRMF dataset


Dataset Overview The HRMF dataset captures the flight of an individual Hawkmoth engaged in hovering flight.
Size 800 frames
Camera A single 28mm visible light camera which produces 16 bit grayscale images
Spatial Resolution 600 x 800 pixels (rows x columns)
Temporal Resolution 400 frames per second
Annotations Overview To facilitate computer vision experimentation we provide several types of annotations.
Part/Landmark Localizations For approximately 400 frames we provide the positions of four key landmarks. The head, abdomen tip, left wing tip, and right wing tip.
Segmentations For all frames we provide segmentations.
