This blog post presents the dataset for the paper titled “Acoustic Feature Analysis for Wet and Dry Road Surface Classification Using Two-stream CNN”. This research work and the dataset are part of my Ph.D under Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) that has been conducted during my secondment at the University of Lincoln.

The acoustic recordings of tyre to road interactions were collected in Millbrook Proving Ground, UK. The 1mile straight and dynamics pad tracks, paved with asphalt, were selected for the recording sessions. Two cars were used for this data collection. Car 1 is a 2012 Toyota Aygo and Car 2 is a 2015 VW Tiguan. The collected data for each car is placed in a directory and named accordingly. In addition, the recordings were done on two different road conditions, wet and dry. Also, each condition was recorded in different illumination levels, once during the day and once during the night.

The compressed RAR file contains 8 dry recordings and 8 wet recordings, structured in directories according to car models, road conditions and illumination levels. The file “1.wave” in the directories are data collected on 1mile straight and “2.wave” are the data collected on dynamics pad.
