Covid Face-Mask Monitoring Dataset
During the present time, COVID-19 situation is the topmost priority in our life. We are introducing a new dataset named Covid Face-Mask Monitoring Dataset which is based on Bangladesh perspective. We have a main concern to detect people who are using masks or not in the street. Furthermore, few people are not wearing masks properly which is harmful for other people and we have the intention to detect them also. Our proposed dataset contains 6,550 images and those images collected from the walking street, bus stop, street tea stall, foot-over bridge and so on. Among the full dataset, we selected 5,750 images for training purposes and 800 images for validation purposes. Our selected dimension is 1080 × 720 pixels for entire dataset. The percentage of validation data from the full dataset is almost 12.20%. We used a personal cell phone camera, DSLR for collecting frames and adding them into our final dataset. We have also planned to collect images from the mentioned place using an action camera or CCTV surveillance camera. But, from Bangladesh perspective it is not easy to collect clear and relevant data for research. To extend, CCTV surveillance cameras are mostly used in the university, shopping complex, hospital, school, college where using a mask is mandatory. But our goal of research is different. In addition, we want to mention that in our proposed dataset there are three classes which are 1. Mask, 2. No_mask, 3. Mask_not_in_position.
