Horse Detection Using Haar Like Features

M. S. Uddin and A. Y. Akhi
Abstract—A commonly used approach for detecting objects is based on the techniques of “boosting” and “cascading”, which allow for real-time detection. In this paper I have developed a classifier for detecting horses from images or from real time video sources. For that purpose the Haar-like features were used to discriminate horses. Those features were used as input in a learning algorithm, based on AdaBoost, which selects a small number of critical visual features from a larger set and yields an extremely efficient classifier.

Index Terms—Horse detection, object detection, haar-like features, adaboost.
