In this letter, a new scheme for generating local binary patterns (LBP) is presented. This Modified Symmetric LBP (MS-LBP) feature takes advantage of LBP and gradient features. It is then applied into a boosted cascade framework for human detection. By combining MS-LBP with Haar-like feature into the boosted framework, the performances of heterogeneous features based detectors are evaluated for the best trade-off between accuracy and speed. Two feature training schemes, namely Single AdaBoost Training Scheme (SATS) and Dual AdaBoost Training Scheme (DATS) are proposed and compared. On the top of AdaBoost, two multidimensional feature projection methods are described. A comprehensive experiment is presented. Apart from obtaining higher detection accuracy, the detection speed based on DATS is 17 times faster than HOG method. © 1994-2012 IEEE.
