Running the code

This repository contains the code for the analysis experiments of section 4.2. Motivation and Analysis Experiments from the paper
For the ScanNet benchmark and Table 1 (main paper) we use the original SpatioTemporalSegmentation-Scannet code.
To add Mix3D to the original MinkowskiNet codebase, we provide the patch file SpatioTemporalSegmentation.patch.
Check the supplementary for more details.

Dependencies

The main dependencies of the project are the following:

python: 3.7
cuda: 10.1

For others, the project uses the poetry dependency management package.
Everything can be installed with the command:

poetry install

Check scripts/init.bash for more details.

Data preprocessing

After the dependencies are installed, it is important to run the preprocessing scripts.
They will bring scannet, matterport, rio, semantic_kitti datasets to a single format.
By default, the scripts expect to find datsets in the data/raw/ folder.
Check scripts/preprocess_*.bash for more details.

dvc repro scannet # matterport, rio, semantic_kitti

This command will run the preprocessing for scannet and will save the result using the dvc data versioning system.

Training and testing

Train MinkowskiNet on the scannet dataset without Mix3D with a voxel size of 5cm:

poetry run train

Train MinkowskiNet on the scannet dataset with Mix3D with a voxel size of 5cm:

poetry run train data/collation_functions=voxelize_collate_merge
