  • 2. Pattern Recognition in Embedded Systems Groups, TU Dortmund University


LARa is the first freely accessible logistics-dataset for human activity recognition. In the ’Innovationlab Hybrid Services in Logistics’ at TU Dortmund University, two picking and one packing scenarios with 14 subjects were recorded using OMoCap, IMUs, and an RGB camera. 758 minutes of recordings were labeled by 12 annotators in 474 person-hours. The subsequent revision was carried out by 4 revisers in 143 person-hours. All the given data have been labeled and categorised into 8 activity classes and 19 binary coarse-semantic descriptions, also called attributes.
