Abstract

Head detection and localization are one of most investigated and demanding tasks of the Computer Vision community. These are also a key element for many disciplines, like Human Computer Interaction, Human Behavior Understanding, Face Analysis and Video Surveillance. In last decades, many efforts have been conducted to develop accurate and reliable head or face detectors on standard RGB images, but only few solutions concern other types of images, such as depth maps. In this paper, we propose a novel method for head detection on depth images, based on a deep learning approach. In particular, the presented system overcomes the classic sliding-window approach, that is often the main computational bottleneck of many object detectors, through a Fully Convolutional Network. Two public datasets, namely Pandora and Watch-n-Patch, are exploited to train and test the proposed network. Experimental results confirm the effectiveness of the method, that is able to exceed all the state-of-art works based on depth images and to run with real time performance.
