In this article, scale and orientation invariant object detection is performed by matching intensity level histograms. Unlike other global measurement methods, the present one uses a local feature description that allows small changes in the histogram signature, giving robustness to partial occlusions. Local features over the object histogram are extracted during a Boosting learning phase, selecting the most discriminant features within a training histogram image set. The Integral Histogram has been used to compute local histograms in constant time.
