Top-View Human Pose Estimation via Convolutional Neural Networks

We propose the DeepPose-based pose estimation system that is flexible with the change of bounding-box range for top-view images. Our purpose is to link person detection system and pose estimation system. We introduce Bounding-box Curriculum Learning (BCL) and Recurrent Pose Estimation (RPE). BCL is a learning technique of CNN inspired from Curriculum Learning. RPE is a recurrent process of pose estimation that fixes the bounding-box range in response to the estimated results. We show the effect of proposed methods compared to normal learned CNN-based pose estimator on our original top-view dataset.
