Paper Abstract

This paper presents our work towards robust vehicle detection in dynamic and static scenes from a brief historical perspective up to our current state-of-the-art. We cover several methods (PCA, basic HOG, texture analysis, 3D measurement) which have been developed for, tested, and used in real-world scenarios. The second part of this work presents a new HOG cascade training algorithm which is based on evolutionary optimization principles: HOG features for a low stage count cascade are learned using genetic feature selection methods. We show that with this approach it is possible to create a HOG cascade which has comparable performance to an AdaBoost trained cascade, but is much faster to evaluate.
