Deep Open Space Segmentation using Automotive Radar [article]

Farzan Erlik Nowruzi, Dhanvin Kolhatkar, Prince Kapoor, Fahed Al Hassanat, Elnaz Jahani Heravi, Robert Laganiere, Julien Rebut, Waqas Malik
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we propose the use of radar with advanced deep segmentation models to identify open space in parking scenarios. A publically available dataset of radar observations called SCORP was collected. Deep models are evaluated with various radar input representations. Our proposed approach achieves low memory usage and real-time processing speeds, and is thus very well suited for embedded deployment.

2017 2017 IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision Workshops (ICCVW)  
In this paper, we introduce a hierarchy of twin convolutional regression networks to estimate the homography between a pair of images. In this framework, networks are stacked sequentially in order to reduce error bounds of the estimate. At every convolutional network module, features from each image are extracted independently, given a shared set of kernels, also known as Siamese network model. Later on in the process, they are merged together to estimate the homography. Further, we evaluate

We show that given the iterative nature of the framework, highly complicated models are not necessarily required, and high performance is achieved via hierarchical arrangement of simple models. Effectiveness of the proposed method is shown through experiments on MSCOCO dataset, in which it significantly outperforms the state-of-the-art.

Counting people is a growing field of interest for researchers in recent years. In-vehicle passenger counting is an interesting problem in this domain that has several applications including High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes. In this paper, present a new in-vehicle thermal image dataset. We propose a tiny convolutional model to count on-board passengers and compare it to well known methods. We show that our model surpasses state-of-the-art methods in classification and has comparable

Fast Human Head and Shoulder Detection Using Convolutional Networks and RGBD Data

Wassim A. El Ahmar, Farzan Erlik Nowruzi, Robert Laganiere
2020 2020 IEEE/CVF Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Workshops (CVPRW)  
We introduce a new real-time approach for human head and shoulder detection from RGB-D data based on a combination of image processing and deep learning approaches. Candidate head-top locations (CHL) are generated from a fast and accurate image processing algorithm that operates on depth data. We propose enhancements to the CHL algorithm making it three times faster. Various deep learning models are then evaluated for the tasks of classification and detection on the candidate head-top locations

Experimental results for different architectures of our model are discussed. We also compare the performance of our models to other state of the art methods in terms of accuracy of detections and computational cost and show that our proposed models are on par with the state of the art in terms of precision-recall of head detection and precision of shoulders detection, with the biggest advantage of our models being in terms of computation time. We also analyze the effect of adding the depth channel on the performance of the network.
