Classification-based pedestrian detection systems (PDSs) are currently a hot research topic in the field of intelligent transportation. A PDS detects pedestrians in real time on moving vehicles. A practical PDS demands not only high detection accuracy but also high detection speed. However, most of the existing classification-based approaches mainly seek(More)
Visual surveillance from low-altitude airborne platforms has been widely addressed in recent years. Moving vehicle detection is an important component of such a system, which is a very challenging task due to illumination variance and scene complexity. Therefore, a boosting Histogram Orientation Gradients (boosting HOG) feature is proposed in this paper.(More)
—Visual surveillance from low-altitude airborne platforms plays a key role in urban traffic surveillance. Moving vehicle detection and motion analysis are very important for such a system. However, illumination variance, scene complexity, and platform motion make the tasks very challenging. In addition, the used algorithms have to be computationally(More)
In this paper, we study the problem of detecting sudden pedestrian crossings to assist drivers in avoiding accidents. This application has two major requirements: to detect crossing pedestrians as early as possible just as they enter the view of the car-mounted camera and to maintain a false alarm rate as low as possible for practical purposes. Although(More)
—Scheduling aircraft landings has been a complex and challenging problem in air traffic control for long time. In this paper, we propose to solve the aircraft landing scheduling problem (ALSP) using multi-objective evolutionary algorithms (MOEAs). Specifically, we consider simultaneously minimizing the total scheduled time of arrival and the total cost, and(More)
