I am looking for a library (open source or not) to analyze photos and determine if there are vehicles and or people in the images. I am not looking for facial recognition or vehicle classification. Just the ability to determine with some percentage certainty that a vehicle and or person is contained in images taken periodically.
I can provide a significant number (1000s) of photos to train the system.
I expect to supply photos to a training system and understand that the quality of the detection system will depend on my training photos. What I am after I guess, is something like Numenta's Image recognition demo software (nicely packaged), but with a more flexible API (training and calling the system from an http API would be nice).
Are there any implementations of the OpenCV haar system that have been wrapped up nicely into a windows program?
