πŸ•΅πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ What Is Obstacle Prediction Puzzle About??

In this puzzle, you will have the radar sensor points mounted on a self-driving car moving through a town. Your goal will be to classify if there we any moving obstacles in front of the self-driving car. These obstacles can be pedestrians or another car within a pre-defined distance threshold. In this binary classification task, an output of 1 means an obstacle, and 0 means there is no obstacle.

πŸ’ͺ🏼 What You’ll Learn

In this puzzle, you will learn

  1. Binary Classification using various sklearn classifiers

Let’s get started! πŸš€

πŸ“ The Task

In this puzzle, you will use the car radar from the dataset to build an automated algorithm to predict the presence of dynamic objects in front of the self-driving car. This is a binary classification task where an output of 1 means there is an obstacle and 0 means there is no obstacle.

πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ’» Explore Dataset

The dataset contains 8000 samples. The training and testing samples are both contained in data.npz. The dataset contains information about the radars points generated from a Carla Simulator. It contains information on whether a dynamic object (pedestrian or vehicle) was within a distance threshold or not.

The individual radar points of single training sample features contain below metadata -

name dtype description
altitude float Altitude angle in radians
azimuth float Azimuth angle in radians.
depth float Distance in meters.
velocity float Velocity towards the sensor.

πŸ—‚ Dataset Files

  • data.npz - ( 5000 training and 3000 testing samples )- This npy file contains the training and testing sets. You can use the NumPy function np.load to read the file
  • sample_submission.csv - It contains the random labels for testing data used for testing purposes and to make sure that your submission format is correct.

πŸ” Evaluation Criteria

The evaluation metrics for this competition are F1 Score (Primary Score) and Accuracy (Secondary Score)

πŸ“¨ How To Make A Submission

  1. Creating a submission directory
  2. Use test.csv and fill the corresponding labels.
  3. Save the test.csv in the submission directory. The name of the above file should be submission.csv.
  4. Inside a submission directory, put the .ipynb notebook from which you trained the model and made inference and save it as original_notebook.ipynb.
  5. Overall, this is what your submission directory should look like
β”œβ”€β”€ submission.csv
└── original_notebook.ipynb

🀫 Hint to get started

  1. Try using various sklearn classifiers and see which one gives the best score.
  2. Check out the notebook using one such classifier, Random Forest.
