Crowd Detection with a Multiview Sampler

  title={Crowd Detection with a Multiview Sampler},
  author={Weina Ge and Robert T. Collins},
We present a Bayesian approach for simultaneously estimating the number of people in a crowd and their spatial locations by sampling from a posterior distribution over crowd configurations. Although this framework can be naturally extended from single to multiview detection, we show that the naive extension leads to an inefficient sampler that is easily trapped in local modes. We therefore develop a set of novel proposals that leverage multiview geometry to propose global moves that jump more… CONTINUE READING
