Co-occurrence histograms of oriented gradients (CoHOG) are powerful descriptors in object detection. In this paper, we propose to utilize a very large pool of CoHOG features with variable-location and variable-size blocks to capture salient characteristics of the object structure. We consider a CoHOG feature as a block with a special pattern described by the offset. A boosting algorithm is further introduced to select the appropriate locations and offsets to construct an efficient and accurate cascade classifier. Experimental results on public datasets show that our approach simultaneously achieves high accuracy and fast speed on both pedestrian detection and car detection tasks.
