Object Detection via Foreground Contour Feature Selection and Part-based Shape Model
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we propose a novel approach for object detection via foreground feature selection and part-based shape model. It automatically learns a shape model from cluttered training images without need to explicitly given bounding box on objects. Our approach commences by extracting a set of feature descriptors, and iteratively selects the foreground features using Earth Movers Distances based matching. This leads to a part-based shape model that can be used for object detection. Experimental results show that the proposed method has comparable performance with the state-of-the-art shape-based detection methods but with less requirements on the data at the training stage.
