The Waymo dataset released this time consists of a total of 1000 segments of 20-second continuous operation performed by an automated driving car. Target locations were San Francisco, Phoenix , Kirkland , and Mountain View , and driving was conducted under various conditions such as night, rainy, and dusk.

The included data includes five sensor data of LIDAR developed by Waymo, high-resolution 360-degree video from five cameras attached to the front and side, data that synchronizes the camera image with the LIDAR sensor, Labeling information for vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles, and signs.
