STN-PLAD Dataset

What is STN-PLAD Dataset?

This STN-PLAD (STN Power Line Assets Dataset) dataset was generated to aid power line companies in detecting high voltage power line towers in order to avoid putting workers at risk. Dataset contains 5 different annotated object classes such as Stockbridge damper, spacer, transmission tower, tower plate, and insulator. Each object class has on avergae of 18.1 annotated instances in total images of 133 of power lines. The images were taken in various angles, resolutions, backgrounds, and illumination. All the images were taken through a hi-res UAV. This dataset can make use of popular deep object detection methods.

Downloading STN-PLAD Dataset in Python

Instead of downloading the STN-PLAD in Python, you can effortlessly load it in Python via our Deep Lake open-source with just one line of code.

Load STN-PLAD Dataset Subset in Python

					import deeplake

How to use STN-PLAD Dataset with PyTorch and TensorFlow in Python

Train a model on STN-PLAD dataset with PyTorch in Python
Let’s use Deep Lake built-in PyTorch one-line dataloader to connect the data to the compute:
					dataloader = ds.pytorch(num_workers=0, batch_size=4, shuffle=False)
Train a model on STN-PLAD dataset with TensorFlow in Python
					dataloader = ds.tensorflow()
