Presentation / Conference
Walczyk, R., Balazs, A., Armitage, A., & Binnie, D. (2011, June)
System architectures for infrared pedestrian tracking. Paper presented at 22nd IET Irish Signals and Systems Conference, Trinity College, Dublin
This paper describes an FPGA-based implementation of a real-time pedestrian detection and tracking system for infrared (IR) video streams. The system includes hardware acceler...
