Pedestrian Intention and Pose Prediction through Dynamical Models and Behaviour Classification

Pedestrian protection systems are being included by many automobile manufacturers in their commercial vehicles. However, improving the accuracy of these systems is imperative since the difference between an effective and a non-effective intervention can depend only on a few centimeters or on a fraction of a second. In this paper, the authors describe a method to carry out the prediction of pedestrian locations and pose and to classify intentions up to 1 s ahead in time applying Balanced Gaussian Process Dynamical Models (B-GPDM) and naïve-Bayes classifiers. These classifiers are combined in order to increase the action classification precision. The system provides accurate path predictions with mean errors of 24.4 cm, for walking trajectories, 26.67 cm, for stopping trajectories and 37.36 cm for starting trajectories, at a time horizon of 1 second.
