HOG detectMultiScale parameters explained

Last week we discussed how to use OpenCV and Python to perform pedestrian detection. To accomplish this, we leveraged the built-in HOG + Linear SVM detector that OpenCV ships with, allowing us to detect people in images. However, one aspect of the HOG person detector we did not discuss in detail is the detectMultiScale  function; specifically, […]
