Hardware acceleration of hidden Markov model decoding for person detection

Abstract

This paper explores methods for hardware acceleration of Hidden Markov Model (HMM) decoding for the detection of persons in still images. Our architecture exploits the inherent structure of the HMM trellis to optimise a Viterbi decoder for extracting the state sequence from observation features. Further performance enhancement is obtained by computing the… (More)
