This research involves live human re-identification on multi-camera systems. Each frame of multiple cameras needs to be captured and analyzed with image processing methods. First, a histogram of oriented gradients (HOG) is performed to identify a person in each frame. Next, Local Binary Pattern (LBP) descriptors are used on each person to determine certain set features about then. Lastly, a red, green, blue (RGB) color histogram is performed on a specific body mask. Each body is then given a label based on their LBP and color histogram information and that label will be sent to a database. This label should be the same across all the cameras. The process should also happen live. The research will include analysis of the difference between using a static body mask and using pose estimation for a more accurate color histogram. Also, regional descriptors will be used to better describe the human body. Lastly, the difference between YCrCb and RGB color histograms will be shown.
