Method of Object Detection for Mobile Robot

2010 Journal of Computer Science  
Problem statement: In general, there are two steps of object detection, which are object generation, where the locations of possible objects are in an image and object verification, where tests are performed to verify the presence of object in an image. Approach: The purpose of the proposed object recognition system was to detect the object which is in front the mobile robot so that it can send warnings to avoid possible collision. The information of detected objects can also help to control

When object localizations were hypothesized, sub-image of the object was extracted from the image. Gabor features extracted from the sub-image is input into the classifier to verify whether the hypothesized sub-image contain an object or not. Conclusion: Localizations of objects in image are generated and verified. Object generation was implemented by using horizontal and vertical edges on the way region of interest segmented by utilizing color information. The sub-images of object are verified by classifier trained on Gabor features of a training set of images.
