Experiment the reduction in time, manual recreation of the laser purpose
To see if the LIDAR data is going to make a difference in reducing time, a simple test was made. Manual cutted images, i.e instead of giving the algorithm the entire image (640x480), only give the section of the image that has something that the LASER can detect (excluding big objects like cars, or very small objects like traffic signs [objects that the LASER only detects with one point] ), for example:
time to process = 82s
only image that was
The initial algorithm was modified, so that it continues to detect pedestrians even in small images.
To speed the process, when the small images are "given" to the algorithm, the only response/publish of the algorithm is if the image contains a pedestrian(s) or not.
The same group of pedestrians were detected in the two cases.
