Impact of quality of training dataset on pedestrian detection for autonomous driving


In autonomous driving, the perception task is a key piece requiring object detectors like pedestrian detection and vehicle detection among other. These object detectors are typically implemented using machine learning algorithms involving pipeline of classifiers or using deep learning networks. Special considerations are required for training dataset for each classifier in the pipeline. The performance of generated classifier models depends not just the size of the dataset but also the on quality of the training dataset in terms of coverage of scenarios. This work also presents the impact of ratio of positive and negative training samples sizes towards improving the performance of different types of classifiers in the pipeline.
