3D Descriptor for an Oriented-human Classification from Complete Point Cloud

Kyis Essmaeel, Cyrille Migniot, Albert Dipanda

Abstract

In this paper we present a new 3D descriptor for the human classification. It is applied over a complete point cloud (i.e 360° view) acquired with a multi-kinect system. The proposed descriptor is derived from the Histogram of Oriented Gradient (HOG) descriptor: surface normal vectors are employed instead of gradients, 3D poins are expressed on a cylindrical space and 3D orientation quantization are computed by projecting the normal vectors on a regular polyhedron. Our descriptor is utilized through a Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier. The SVM classifier is trained using an original database composed of data acquired by our multi-kinect system. The evaluation of the proposed 3D descriptor over a set of candidates shows very promising results. The descriptor can efficiently discriminate human from non-human candidates and provides the frontal direction of the human with a high precision. The comparison with a well known descriptor demonstrates significant improvements of results.
