Probabilistic Integration of Intensity and Depth Information for Part-Based Vehicle Detection

In this paper, an object class recognition method is presented. The method uses local image features and follows the part-based detection approach. It fuses intensity and depth information in a probabilistic framework. The depth of each local feature is used to weigh the probability of finding the object at a given distance. To train the system for an object class, only a database of images annotated with bounding boxes is required, thus automatizing the extension of the system to different object classes. The authors apply the method to the problem of detecting vehicles from a moving platform. The experiments with a data set of stereo images in an urban environment show a significant improvement in performance when using both information modalities.
