Full-body person recognition system.
1997 - 2006.
We describe a system that learns from examples to recognize persons in images taken indoors. Images of full-body persons are represented by color-based and shape-based features. Recognition is carried out through combinations of Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifiers. Different types of multi-class strategies based on SVMs are explored and compared to k-Nearest Neighbors classifiers. The experimental results show high recognition rates and indicate the strength of SVM-based classifiers to improve both generalization and run-time performance. The system works in real-time.
