Abstract
This paper focuses on how an object, such as pedestrians, can be spotted, recognised and then subsequently tracked without prior information. Rather than using conventional sliding window techniques for target/object detection, a biological-like bottom-up neural system, similar to that of human's visual perception, has been adopted for selecting the region of interest (ROI) according to the salience and relevance of the scene. Subsequently, a cortex-like feed forward object recognition mechanism is employed for categorising objects in the ROI into pedestrian and non-pedestrian classes. The result is demonstrated using a video track and the flexibility and efficiency of this biological approach for surveillance application is commented.
