I know that Haar-based Detectors For Pedestrian Detection will never work and I was wondering if there is another cascade already tested to work with. The camera is mounted on a mobile robot, then is not a fixed camera. Thanks

There is a niche field of study concerning detection of fallen persons, so there are some available references, though I don't know of a cascade classifier ready to go. You'll likely need to train your own (and Haar is considered inferior to traincascade now);

Detecting falls and poses in image silhouettes

This next reference should apply directly to your need;

Fallen Person Detection for Mobile Robots using 3D Depth Data

I ask of the person who gave me a down arrow to please explain why my response is unhelpful. @gloria@berak , I'd like to know what I'm doing wrong, so that I don't do it again.
