Pedestrian Detection Using HOG Dimension Reducing in Video Surveillance

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 298)


Pedestrian detection draws a mount of attention in these years. However, most of the classify-based pedestrian detection methods are facing huge training samples and high computation complexity. In this paper, it proposed a manifold learning based pedestrian detection method. First, modeling the video surveillance scene via mixed gaussian background model and collecting negative samples from the background images; Second, extract the positive and negative samples histogram of oriented gradients(HOG) features, using the local preserving projection(LPP) for dimensionality reduction; Finally, detecting the pedestrian from the input image under the framework of AdaBoost. Experiments show that the algorithm achieved good results both in speed and accuracy of pedestrian detection.
