Plugin name: supProcessFilterPatchObjectDetection
Previous contributors: Étienne CORVÉE (1), Vasanth BATHRINARAYANAN Current contributor: Silviu-Tudor SERBAN
Interest: Our purpose is to be able to optimally detect people, faces and other body parts in video sequences.
Method: For feature selection we use a variant of LBP Features designed by (1). Adaboost is used for training the data and a cascade-model for detection.
Challenges: In most of the sequences we work with, generic S.o.t.A. detectors would fail due to the following variables:
– distortion due to the Lens and/or Point Of View of the camera
– poor resolution, low FPS
– light changes
As an example, in some of the video sequences people appear tilted as they get further from the centre of the scene and are missed by the regular detector.
