This data set contains roughly 650,000 examples of robot grasping attempts. The examples are grouped into batches that have identical feature keys. The set of features present in each batch is described in a CSV file.

    • Feature descriptions and counts -- This sheet describes the meanings of the features in the grasping dataset and shows which batches contain which features.

The Example protobufs are stored in Tensorflow RecordWriter format. The files are named:


The number in the <batch> string is the number of features in each example. Batches that are larger than 500MB are split into parts.

The script linked at the bottom of the page will use curl to download all (886GB) of the data files.
