We study the question of feature sets for robust visual ob- ject recognition, adopting linear SVM based human detec- tion as a test case. After reviewing existing edge and gra- dient based descriptors, we show experimentally that grids of Histograms of Oriented Gradient (HOG) descriptors sig- nicantly outperform existing feature sets for human detec- tion. We study the inuence of each stage of the computation on performance, concluding that ne-scale gradients, ne orientation binning, relatively coarse spatial binning, and high-quality local contrast normalization in overlapping de- scriptor blocks are all important for good results. The new approach gives near-perfect separation on the original MIT pedestrian database, so we introduce a more challenging dataset containing over 1800 annotated human images with a large range of pose variations and backgrounds.
