  • Pedestrian Detection using a boosted cascade of Histogram of Oriented Gradients. 

    Ruiz Sancho, Cristina (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-09-10)
    Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
    Open Access
    [ANGLÈS] Pedestrian detection has been an active area of research in recent years; its interest relies on the potential positive impact on quality of life of the related applications (surveillance systems, automotive safety, ...
  • Recognizing point clouds using conditional random fields 

    Husain, Syed Farzad; Dellen, Babette Karla Margarete; Torras, Carme (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Detecting objects in cluttered scenes is a necessary step for many robotic tasks and facilitates the interaction of the robot with its environment. Because of the availability of efficient 3D sensing devices as the Kinect, ...
  • Robust color contour object detection invariant to shadows 

    Scandaliaris, Jorge; Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Andrade-Cetto, Juan; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Springer Verlag, 2007)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    In this work a new robust color and contour based object detection method in images with varying shadows is presented. The method relies on a physics-based contour detector that emphasizes material changes and a contour-based ...
  • Shared random Ferns for efficient detection of multiple categories 

    Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc; Andrade-Cetto, Juan; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We propose a new algorithm for detecting multiple object categories that exploits the fact that different categories may share common features but with different geometric distributions. This yields an efficient detector ...
