I want to do pedestrian detection and tracking.

Input: Video Stream from CCTV camera.


  1. # people going from left to right
  2. # people going from right to left
  3. # No. of people in the middle

For pedestrian detection I am using HOG and SVM. After detection how to do I calculate the required values listed above. Can anyone tell me what is the tracking algorithm I have to use and any good algorithm for pedestrian detection.

Or should I use tracking algorithm? Is there a way to do without it?

Any references to codes/blogs/technical papers is appreciated.

Platform: C++ & OpenCV

Can you elaborate more on these points:

  • people going from left to right: Do you mean entering from left of the frame and leaving to the right of frame or do you mean instantaeneous direction left to right at any point?
  • people going from right to left: Same question as above.
