To encourage students and non-experts to participate in tracking competitions, we organize an off-site tracking competition for evaluating the processes of camera pose tracking step by step. We divide the processes into point matching, point tracking and mapping. In the competition, participants download a dataset and submit the tracking result for each process. Through the competition, you can learn one of techniques for tracking camera poses in augmented reality. If you pass all the levels in the competition, you will have enough knowledge to attend the on-site tracking competition. The tasks of the competition are as follows.
- Level 1: Finding the locations of known feature points in an image.
- Level 2: Tracking known feature points in successive frames.
- Level 3: Tracking and mapping new feature points in successive frames.
