The on-board camera configuration during the recordings is shown below. Four non-overlapping visual cameras are mounted at each corner of the vehicle. They are represented with light blue colour.

The characteristics for the four on-board cameras are as follows:

A new IPATCH dataset, collected in April 2015, contains a set of fourteen multi camera recordings (visible, themal) collected off the coast of Brest, France, in collaboration with the AUTOPROTECTION project. The recordings, which represent a series of realistic maritime piracy (abnormal / attack to vessel) scenarios, presents different challenges covering object detection and tracking (fusion of data from sensors with different modalities and sensor handover (tracking objects passing from one FOV to another with minimal overlapping FOV)), event detection and threat recognition. In addition to video data, GPS data is also made available. Altogether, detection, tracking and scene understanding challenges in the maritime domain can now be addressed on this dataset. The data collection was carried out employing the vessel ‘VN Partisan’ (see Figure 2), managed by AUTOPROTECTION project.
