Classification of Vehicles Using Binary Foreground Images Averaged Over Time
MetadataShow full item record
We describe a shape-based method for classification of vehicles from omnidirectional videos. Different from similar approaches, the binary images of vehicles obtained by background subtraction in a sequence of frames are averaged over time. We show with experiments that using the average shape of the object results in a more accurate classification than using a single frame. The vehicle types we classify are motorcycle, car and van. We created an omnidirectional video dataset and repeated experiments with shuffled train-test sets to ensure randomization.
