Pedestrian detection in a real scene is an interesting application for video surveillance systems. This paper presents our contribution to improve the work of Viola and Jones, originally designed to detect faces. This work uses a cascade of classifiers based on Adaboost using Haar features. It improves the learning step by including a decision tree presenting the different poses and possible occlusions. The method has been tested on real and complex sequences and has given a good detection despite occlusions and poses variation.
