|TOWARDS DETECTING PEOPLE CARRYING OBJECTS: A Periodicity Dependency Pattern Approach
|Detecting people carrying objects is a commonly formulated problem which results can be used as a first step in order to monitor interactions between people and objects in computer vision applications. In this paper we propose a novel method for this task. By using gray-value information instead of the contours obtained by a segmentation process we build up a system that is robust against segmentation errors. Experimental results show the validity of the method.
