Argo AI, an autonomous vehicle company, has released two high-definition maps and a dataset that contains information about the trajectories of 300,000 vehicles driving through Pittsburgh and Miami to support advancements in computer vision. The maps include geometric and semantic metadata, such as lane centerlines, lane direction, and the driveable area. Argo AI extracted the vehicle trajectories from over 1,000 driving hours, and the dataset includes left turns and lane changes. Researchers can use this data to teach autonomous vehicles to better anticipate the movements of other vehicles.
