Paper Abstract

We present a novel contour-based object detector using generalized hough transform where each local part casts a vote for the possible locations of the object center. The angles of line segments as local feature are extracted to describe the contour of the object, then an improved voting tactics is applied to detect the location and attitude of the object. Experimental results demonstrate that the algorithm has an encouraging detection performance.
