We present TIMo (Time-of-flight Indoor Monitoring), a dataset for video-based monitoring of indoor spaces captured using a time-of-flight (ToF) camera. The resulting depth videos feature people performing a set of different predefined actions, for which we provide detailed annotations. Person detection for people counting and anomaly detection are the two targeted applications. Most existing surveillance video datasets provide either grayscale or RGB videos. Depth information, on the other hand, is still a rarity in this class of datasets in spite of being popular and much more common in other research fields within computer vision. Our dataset addresses this gap in the landscape of surveillance video datasets. The recordings took place at two different locations with the ToF camera set up either in a top-down or a tilted perspective on the scene. Moreover, we provide experimental evaluation results from baseline algorithms.
