We introduce the KAIST multi-spectral dataset, which covers a great range of drivable regions, from urban to residential, for autonomous systems. Our data set provides the different perspectives of the world captured in coarse time slots (day and night), in addition to fine time slots (sunrise, morning, afternoon, sunset, night, and dawn). For all-day perception of autonomous systems, we propose the use of a different spectral sensor, i.e., a thermal imaging camera. Toward this goal, we develop a multi-sensor platform, which supports the use of a co-aligned RGB/Thermal camera, RGB stereo, 3-D LiDAR, and inertial sensors (GPS/IMU) and a related calibration technique. We design a wide range of visual perception tasks including the object detection, drivable region detection, localization, image enhancement, depth estimation, and colorization using a single/multi-spectral approach. In this paper, we provide a description of our benchmark with the recording platform, data format, development toolkits, and lessons about the progress of capturing data sets.
