Pedestrian Shape Extraction by means of Active Contours

Abstract : This article presents a shape extraction and results of a preliminary validation stage for a pedestrian detection system based on the use of active contours. The complete system is based on the use of both far infrared and visible cameras to detect areas that potentially contain pedestrians; in order to validate and filter such result a refinement of the human shape by means of active contours is performed followed by a neural network based filtering
