Does OpenCV 3.0 actually have car detection? [closed]

The release notes for the OpenCV 3.0 Alpha say that it includes "Car detection using Waldboost, ACF by Vlad Shakhuro and Nikita Manovich". I haven't been able to find it thus far. I have found the functions for waldboost and acffeature in the opencv_contrib repository, but I haven't been able to find any implementations or any other mention of car detection anywhere else.

Does anyone else have any more information on car detection in OpenCV, or were the release notes just overstating the inclusion of Waldboost and ACF for the new release?

the code is all there, but you will have to train your own model (adas/tools/fcw_train, fcw_detect).

That's the conclusion that I was coming to as well, but I was just thrown off since I would think that would better be described as "Object detection using Waldboost, ACF" rather than "Car detection using Waldboost, ACF". It just seems a bit odd to me to bill it as "car detection" when it really isn't directly related to cars at all besides the fact that you can train your own classifier for them.

real-time car detection can be achieved using Viola Jones framework with traincascade, which uses Adaboost, Waldboost is an optimal algorithm for Adaboost.

Hi, jsky, can you give more details on how to train a waldboost detector?
