Robust Human Detection and Identification by Using Stereo and thermal Images in Human Robot Interaction

Abstract

In this paper, robust human detection is investigated by fusing the stereo and infrared thermal images for effective interaction between humans and socially interactive robots. A scale-adaptive filter is first designed for the stereo vision system to detect human candidates. To eliminate the difficulty of the vision system in distinguishing human beings… (More)
