RadarScenes Tools


viewer example

This python package provides fast visualization for the RadarScenes dataset.

The Open GL based visualizer is smoother than oleschum/radar_scenes, but has some functionality stripped off to be more suitable for an online visualization setting.


The package is designed for Python versions >=3.8.

Navigate to the repo root:

cd vispy_radar_scenes

Install inside your virtual environment using:

pip install .


python setup.py install

Virtual Environment

It is highly recommended to install the package in its own virtual environment. To do so, create a virtual environment prior to installation of the package:

python3 -m venv ~/.virtualenvs/radar_scenes

This will create a python virtual environment called radar_scenes in the folder .virtualenvs in your home directory.

This environment can be activated via

source ~/.virtualenvs/radar_scenes/bin/activate

An active virtual environment is indicated by a preceding (radar_scenes) line before the usual bash prompt.

Once the virtual environment is active, the package can be installed with the command

cd vispy_radar_scenes
pip install .


Please refer to www.radar-scenes.com to get instructions on how to cite the data set.


After successful installation, the vispy_radar_scenes package is available in your python environment.

Radar Data Viewer

During installation, the command rad_viewer is made available. If you have installed the package into a virtual environment, this command is only available while the virtual environment is active.

Calling vispy_rad_viewer launches the radar data viewer. As an optional command line argument, a path to a *.json file from the RadarScenes dataset can be provided. The sequence will then be loaded directly on start up.


$ vispy_rad_viewer ~/datasets/radar_scenes/data/sequence_128/scenes.json

The time slider itself or the arrow keys on your keyboard can be used to scroll through the sequence.

Notice, however, that the RadarScenes data set itself comes with a different license.
