Due: 11/17/2016, 11:59pm

This assignment is worth 50 points.

In this problem, you will implement a simple pedestrian detection system. This system is similar to the 2005 paper by Navneet Dalal and Bill Triggs found here.
What you need to include in your submission:
  1. [20 points] A script setup_and_train.m that gets the positive crops and generates the negative crops (feel free to just use a sample for each), extracts their features, and trains an SVM with these.
  2. [20 points] A script test.m that implements sliding window detection for a test image.
  3. [5 pts] A text file results.txt that lists how many bounding boxes your system predicted positive, how many of them really were positive, how many ground-truth persons were in the test set, and what the precision/recall of your system is.
  4. [5 pts] 10 windows with positive detections, in jpg/png format.
