IEEE Video and Image Processing (VIP) Cup

GLOBAL UNDERGRADUATE COMPETITION IN SIGNAL PROCESSING

CHALLENGING TRAFFIC SIGN DETECTION: The 2017 VIP Cup is a sign detection competition under challenging conditions. Robust and reliable traffic sign detection is necessary to bring autonomous vehicles onto our roads. However, validation of state of the algorithms lack a comprehensive understanding of detection or recognition performance with respect to challenging environmental conditions. To overcome this shortcoming, we introduce a video dataset that includes a plethora of challenging conditions. The goal of this challenge is to implement traffic sign detection algorithms that can robustly perform under such challenging environmental conditions.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE? Teams formed of three to ten undergraduate students, at most one graduate student, and one faculty member.

PRIZES: GRAND PRIZE VALUED UP TO $10K TOTAL

Monetary prizes of $5,000 for the champion, $2,500 for the runner-up, $1,500 for the second runner-up, and travel grants for the team members to showcase their work at ICIP 2017, Beijing, China.
