Abstract
In this paper, an approach to the automatic detection of vehicles at long range using sequences of thermal infrared images is presented. The vehicles in the sequences can be either moving or stationary. The sensor can also be mounted on a moving platform. The target area in the images is very small, typically less than 10 pixels on target. The proposed method consists of two independent parts. The first part seeks for possible targets in individual images and then merges the results for a subsequence of images. The second part of the algorithm specifically focuses on finding moving objects in the scene.
