Abstract
This paper presents a novel vision system for people detection using an omnidirectional camera mounted on a mobile robot. In order to determine regions of interest (ROI), we compute a dense optical flow map using graphics processing units, which enable us to examine compliance with the ego-motion of the robot in a dynamic environment. Shape-based classification algorithms are employed to sort ROIs into human beings and nonhumans. The experimental results show that the proposed system detects people more precisely than previous methods.
