Fabian Flohr addressed the detection, segmentation and orientation estimation of persons in visual data. While the possible application domains of the proposed methods are manifold, ranging from image editing over surveillance to robotics and the intelligent vehicle domain, the latter is the focus of his work. In particular, Flohr looks at the role of the Vulnerable Road Users (VRU, e.g. pedestrians and cyclists), being among the most critical objects for the realisation of self-driving vehicles.
