Classification of moving objects for video surveillance applications still remains a challenging problem due to the video inherently changing conditions such as lighting or resolution. This paper proposes a new approach for vehicle/pedestrian object classification based on the learning of a static kNN classifier, a dynamic Hidden Markov Model (HMM)-based classifier, and the definition of a fusion rule that combines the two outputs. The main novelty consists in the study of the dynamic aspects of the moving objects by analysing the trajectories of the features followed in the HOG-PCA feature space, instead of the classical trajectory study based on the frame coordinates. The complete hybrid system was tested on the VIRAT database and worked in real time, yielding up to 100% peak accuracy rate in the tested video sequences.

Abstract

Classification of moving objects for video surveillance applications still remains a challenging problem due to the video inherently changing conditions such as lighting or resolution. This paper proposes a new approach for vehicle/pedestrian object classification based on the learning of a static kNN classifier, a dynamic Hidden Markov Model (HMM)-based classifier, and the definition of a fusion rule that combines the two outputs. The main novelty consists in the study of the dynamic aspects of the moving objects by analysing the trajectories of the features followed in the HOG-PCA feature space, instead of the classical trajectory study based on the frame coordinates. The complete hybrid system was tested on the VIRAT database and worked in real time, yielding up to 100% peak accuracy rate in the tested video sequences.
