Abstract / Description

Pedestrian behavior understanding and identification in surveillance scenarios has attraction a tremendous amount of attention over the past many years. An integral part of this problem involves identifying various human visual attributes in the scene. Over the years, researcher have proposed various solutions and have explored various features. However, they have focused on either engineered features or simple RGB images. In this paper, we explore the problem of crowd at- tribute recognition using RGB (Red, Green, Blue), HSV (Hue, Saturation, Value) and L∗A∗B∗ color models and propose a 3-branch Siamese network to solve the problem. We present a unique approach of using these three color models and fine- tune a pre-trained VGG-19 network for our task. We perform extensive experimentation on the most challenging public PETA dataset, which is by far the largest and the most diverse dataset of its kind. We show an improvement over the state of the art work.
