Student thesis: Master's Thesis


In video surveillance detecting human in crowded environment is profitable but challenging Based on contour-based human detection we add two new methods: foreground distribution trend filter and tracking Foreground distribution trend filter deletes those distinguishable false alarms by analyzing foreground distribution trend along x-axis of false alarms Tracking is to record the trajectory a human pass We use this feature to recover those missing detected humans by interpolating positions and consequently increase recall We also make a hypothesis that false alarms may only occur in few frames so we can delete them to increase precision Experimental results show that our proposed methods can improve precision and recall
