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.

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 release notes for the OpenCV 3.0 alpha say that it should include "Car detection using Waldboost, ACF by Vlad Shakhuro and Nikita Manovich". I have found the Waldboost algorithms in the opencv_contrib repository, but I haven't been able to find anything on car detection. From the description I had assumed (perhaps incorrectly) that there would be some type of trained classifier like the one for faces used in the objectDetection.cpp tutorial. Where is the car detection method that is mentioned in the release notes?
