Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a new approach to identify people in multi-camera based on AdaBoost descriptors cascade. Given the complexity of this task, we propose a new regional color feature vector based on intra and inter color histograms fusion to characterize a person in multi-camera. This descriptor is then integrated into an extensive comparative study with several existing color, texture and shape feature vectors in order to choose the best ones. We prove through a comparative study with the main existing approaches on the VIPeR dataset and using Cumulative Matching Characteristic measurement that the proposed approach is very suitable to identify a person and provides very satisfactory performances.
