Abstract :

Histogram of Oriented Gradient (HOG) is a robust descriptor which is widely used in many real-life applications, including human detection, face recognition, object counting, and video surveillance. In order to extract HOG descriptor from color images whose information is three times more than the grayscale images, researchers currently apply the maximum magnitude selection method. This method makes the information of the resulted image is reduced by selecting the maximum magnitudes. However, after we extract HOG using the unselected magnitudes of the maximum magnitude selection method, we observe that the performance is better than using the maximum magnitudes in several cases. Therefore, in this paper, we propose a novel approach for extracting HOG from color images such as Color Component Selection and Color Component Fusion. We also propose the extended kernels in order to improve the performance of HOG. With our new approaches in the color component analysis, the experimental results of several facial benchmark datasets are enhanced with the increment from 3 to 10% of accuracy. Specifically, a 95.92% of precision is achieved on the Face AR database and 75% on the Georgia Face database. The results are better more than 10 times compared with the original HOG approach.
