We thank Wolfgang Niehsen and his Team at Robert Bosch GmbH, Computer Vision Research Lab, Hildesheim, for supplying the test car, camera mount and tons of input regarding meaningful content of the scenes we recorded.

We further thank Jens Taupadel, Jakob Knauer and Moritz Wandsleb at Hannover University for acquiring and processing the scans. Finally, we thank our lab members Alexandro Sanchez-Bach, Ekaterina Melnik, Felix Braham Stern, for their assistance in data processing, Florian Becker and Frank Lenzen for helpful discussions as well as AEON Verlag & Studio GmbH for the organization of all helpers and facilities.
