CCTV object detection with fuzzy classification and image enhancement
In this paper we propose a novel approach for pattern recognition problems with non-uniform classes of images. The main concept of this classification method is to describe classes of images with their fuzzy portraits. This approach is a good generalization of the algorithm. The fuzzy set is calculated as a preliminary result of the algorithm before the final decision or rejection that solves the problem of uncertainty at the boundaries of classes.We use the method to solve the problem of knife detection in still images. The main aim of this paper is to test fuzzy classification with feature vectors in a real environment. We used selected MPEG-7 descriptor schemes as feature vectors. The method was experimentally validated on a dataset of over 12,000 images. The article describes the results of six experiments which confirm the accuracy of our method. In addition we conducted a test with enhanced images, achieved with two state-of-the-art super-resolution algorithms.
