Computer Vision System Toolbox™ provides pretrained object detectors and the functionality to train a custom detector. The cascade object detector uses the Viola-Jones algorithm to detect people's faces, noses, eyes, mouth, or upper body. The people detector detects people in an input image using the histogram of oriented gradients (HOG) features and a trained support vector machine (SVM) classifier.
You can customize the cascade object detector using the
