— This paper details filtering subsystem for a tetra-vision based pedestrian detection system. The complete system is based on the use of both visible and far infrared cameras; in an initial phase it produces a list of areas of attention in the images which can contain pedestrians. This list is furtherly refined using symmetry-based assumptions. Then, this(More)
— This paper describes the research activities for the localiza-tion of human shapes using visual information carried on at the University of Parma, Italy, in the frame of a common project with the TACOM Department of U. S. Army. The paper proposes the application of a stereoscopic technique as a pre-processing for the localization of humans in generic(More)
Noncercopithecid Miocene catarrhines share numerous features of their postcranial skeleton with extant platyrrhines, particularly pitheciines, cebines, and atelines. For any given fossil taxon, these similarities do not extend throughout the skeleton. Also there may be similarities to more than one platyrrhine taxon, within different parts of the(More)
— This article presents a tetra-vision (4 cameras) system for the detection of pedestrians by the means of the simultaneous use of one far infra-red and one visible cameras stereo pairs. The main idea is to exploit both the advantages of far infra-red and visible cameras trying at the same time to benefit from the use of each system. Initially, the two(More)
— This article presents a validator stage for a pedestrian detection system based on the use of probabilistic models for the infrared domain. Four different models are employed in order to recognize the pose of the pedestrians; open, almost open, almost closed and fully closed legs are detected. In an attempt to overcome the drawbacks of template-matching(More)
This paper describes a system for evaluating pedestrian detection algorithm results. The developed tool allows a human operator to annotate on a file all pedestrians in a previously acquired video sequence. A similar file is produced by the algorithm being tested using the same annotation engine. A matching rule has been established to validate the(More)
— This paper presents a refinement and validation stage for a tetra-vision based pedestrian detection system. The complete system is based on the use of both visible and far infrared cameras; in an initial phase it produces a list of areas of attention in the images which can contain pedestrians. Starting from the assumption that human shapes are mostly(More)
The robotics community benefits from common test methods and metrics of performance to focus their research. As a result, many performance tests, competitions, demonstrations and analyses have been devised to measure the autonomy, intelligence, and overall effectiveness of robots. These range from robot soccer (football) to measuring the performance of a(More)
