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)
The ultimate purpose of a pedestrian-detection system (PDS) is to reduce pedestrian-vehicle-related injury. Most such systems tend to adopt expensive sensors, such as infrared devices, in expectation of better performance. In comparison, a low-cost optical-camera-based system has much potential practical value, including a greater detection range, and can(More)
In action recognition, bag of visual words based approaches have been shown to be successful, for which the quality of codebook is critical. In a large vocabulary of poses (visual words), some key poses play a more decisive role than others in the codebook. This paper proposes a novel approach for key poses selection, which models the descriptor space(More)
Airborne vehicle detection and tracking systems equipped on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are difficult to develop because of factors like UAV motion, scene complexity and so on. In this paper, we propose a new framework of multi-motion layer analysis to detect and track moving vehicles in airborne platform. Moving vehicles are firstly detected by(More)
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)
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)
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)
In a pedestrian detection system, a classifier is usually designed to recognize whether a candidate is a pedestrian. Support vector machines (SVM) has become a primary technique to train a classifier for pedestrian detection. However, it is hard to give the best training model which has a tremendous effect to the performance of a SVM classifier. In this(More)
At present, moving vehicle detection on airborne platform has been an important technology for urban traffic surveillance. In such a situation, most commonly used methods (e.g. image subtraction) could hardly work well because of some additional difficulties such as slow movement of vehicles and jam. This paper proposed a new moving vehicle detection method(More)
