SESGen is the software tool designed for generating stereoscopic image sequences of synthetic 3D scenes containing surfaces and textured objects. Image sequences are recorded by a freely moving stereo rig along the motion path defined by the User. For each of the generated frames the left and right stereovision images, the corresponding ground truth disparity map and a segmentation map of scene image are produced (see example figures below). To facilitate scene generation task a simple script language and its interpreter are of help. Hence, the User can store source codes defining various sequences for future tests. Using the SESGen tool the User can generate suitable benchmarks for verifying different VO and image segmentation algorithms. The program can be downloaded free of charge from the link below.
Please note, SesGen zip archives, because they are downloaded from a website, Windows treats as suspicious. After unzipping this archive, when you start stereoeditor.exe file and warning message appears, please choose “more information” and choose “run anyway”.
