pedestrian detection infrared images saliency segmentation attention points template match
An effective approach for pedestrian dectecting is presented in this paper considering the characteristics of infrared images and human shapes.A method based on the statistics histogram of contrast is used to calculate saliency maps(SM)of infrared images.Attention points(AP)extracted from SM are used to decide the segmentation threshold.The hierarchical part-template match tree is built combined with prior probabilities and varieties of human posture.After matching template-tree with segmented results,pedestrians are presented.Experiment results of the approach are compared with that of other methods on three open datasets.The results show that the proposed algorithm has the high precision with less time.
