This is a dataset of Chess board photos and various pieces. All photos were captured from a constant angle, a tripod to the left of the board. The bounding boxes of all pieces are annotated as follows:
black-pawn. There are 2894 labels across 292 images.
At Roboflow, we built a chess piece object detection model using this dataset.
You can see a video demo of that here. (We did struggle with pieces that were occluded, i.e. the state of the board at the very beginning of a game has many pieces obscured - let us know how your results fare!)
Using this Dataset
We're releasing the data free on a public license.
Roboflow makes managing, preprocessing, augmenting, and versioning datasets for computer vision seamless.
Developers reduce 50% of their boilerplate code when using Roboflow's workflow, save training time, and increase model reproducibility.
