Pose Bowl: Spacecraft Detection and Pose Estimation Challenge

Overview

Inspector spacecraft, like NASA’s Seeker, are designed to conduct low-cost in-space inspections of other ships. Inspector spacecraft have limited computing resources, but complex computing demands.

In this challenge, solvers will help NASA develop algorithms that could be run on inspector (chaser) spacecraft. There are two tracks, with different associated prizes. In the Detection Track, solvers develop object detection solutions that identify the boundaries of spacecraft in an image. In the Pose Estimation Track, solvers develop solutions that identify changes in the position and orientation (pose) of the chaser spacecraft camera across a sequence of images.


The competitions

Detection Track

Develop algorithms for use on inspector spacecraft that take and process photos of other ships. In the Detection Track, solutions will identify the boundaries of generic spacecraft in photos. #science
