Object Detection Using OpenCV

This chapter is a re-visit of Chapter 3, Drilling Deeper into Features - Object Detection, but with new algorithms. As you may be familiar with object detection from Chapter 3, Drilling Deeper into Features - Object Detection, in this chapter, we will cover some more feature extraction algorithms. Unlike Chapter 3, Drilling Deeper into Features - Object Detection, in this chapter, we will use OpenCV to implement all the algorithms.

The following topics will be covered in this chapter:

  • Cascade classifier—Haar Cascades
  • Scale Invariant Feature Transformation (SIFT)
  • Speeded-up robust features (SURF)
