Part Based Recognition of Pedestrians Using Multiple Features and Random Forests
MetadataShow full item record
This paper explores a discriminative part-based approach for recognising people in video. It uses many regions to model the background and foreground and a random forest for classification. The objective is to overcome the limitations of more holistic approaches that try to recognise people as a single region with the consequential need to segment each person as one representation. Attributes of each blob, their relationships and variation over video frames are argued to be useful features for discrimination. In this paper the attributes of each blob are considered as a first step in the recognition process. We evaluate our approach through a comparison of three state of the art classifiers: Bagging, Adaboost and a Multilayer Perceptron (MLP), with the Random Forest (RF) using 10 fold cross validation. A detailed statistical analysis shows that the random forest classifier is more accurate compared to the other methods in terms of discrimination between regions describing people and those of the background.
