Graph neural network based human detection in videos during occlusion environments

Kusuma Sriram, Kiran Purushotham


One of the most difficult perceptual problems for many applications is accurately recognizing the human object in a variety of circumstances. This can be difficult due to obstructions, weather, complex backdrops, cast shadows, and occlusions. Occlusion is a challenging open problem where a detector can only perceive a portion of the target human because of obstacles in the surrounding. In this research, an experimental investigation was conducted using the multi object tracking (MOT17) datasets to construct a graph neural network-based solution for the detection of humans in videos while considering the possibility of occlusion. Graph neural network (GNN) is used for the construction of neural solver model for detecting human object in occlusion scenario. The results obtained shows that this proposed method offers a considerable improvement in efficiency in comparison to the ways that have been used in the past. The values obtained for the standard performance metrics are higher than the state-of-the-art methods.
