Car detection using OpenCV
I am working on a small personal project where i have to know wether an image shown is a car or not. I am using the basic OpenCV python based template matching.
Positive Image / Template Image
Car Top View :-
The simple template matching by using one of the positive image on the other is giving the required result.
But when we are using negative images like
the template finder is finding this as a positive match.
Methods tried and failed :-
Increase the threshold for template matching :- Increasing the threshold is causing many of the actual positive images to stop matching
Different types of template matching techniques that are there in OpenCV :- Not giving any better result
Using multiple templates to reinforce positive and negative matches:- Doesn't work well for all the cases
Is there a better way to remove the template matching false positives that we are getting. Are there any feature matching or edge detection based techniques that can be used instead of template matching to improve my algorithm.
