Multiple Classifier Object Detection with Confidence Measures
journal contributionposted on 2023-05-25, 22:06 authored by Horton, M, Cameron-Jones, RM, Williams, R
This paper describes an extension to the Haar Classifier Cascade technique for object detection. Existing Haar Classifier Cascades are binary; the extension adds confidence measurement. This confidence measure was implemented and found to improve accuracy on two object detection problems: face detection and fish detection. For fish detection, the problem of selecting positive training-sample angle-ranges was also considered; results showed that large random variations that result in cascades covering overlapping ranges increases their accuracy.

Rights statementAfter this paper was submitted for publication, errors were found in the positive sample generation and in the OpenCV training algorithms. These errors made the results in section 4.2 invalid. This version of the paper contains the correct results, which differ from those in the conference proceedings.
