UnrealCV - CVPR 17 Demo

Welcome to the CVPR17 demo page of UnrealCV. This page contains what you saw in our demo station. Our demo time is 07/22 Morning 10:30 - 12:30 and Afternoon 15:00 - 17:00. Please share this link with your friends if you like our demo.

Our demo includes two parts, pre-recorded videos and live-demo


The first video demonstrates various applications of UnrealCV, including:

  • Object mask generation in a virtual supermarket,
  • Bounding box generation and running a detection algorithm in a virtual scene,
  • Controlling hazardous factors to diagnose the robustness of stereo depth estimation algorithms,
  • Indoor navigation and object interaction.

The second video includes various 3D scenes that can be used in UnrealCV, including:

  • A static virtual scene, RealisticRendering,
  • A dynamic virtual scene, Matinee,
  • A virtual supermarket in which grocery items are randomly placed for training,
  • More virtual scenes that have been used in the research

Live demo

  • Faster-RCNN detection demo

    Move a virtual camera in a virtual room, see how well the detection algorithm works. Also demonstrate the ground truth that can be produced by a virtual scene using UnrealCV.

    You can reproduce this demo with two simple steps

    1. Download the RealisticRendering virtual scene from our model zoo http://unrealcv.org/model_zoo
    2. Follow the tutorial in this page http://docs.unrealcv.org/en/master/tutorials/faster_rcnn.html
  • Virtual supermarket demo

  • A virtual toy-robotics arm
