Background and Objectives: Video processing is one of the essential concerns generally regarded over the last few years. Social group detection is one of the most necessary issues in crowd. For human-like robots, detecting groups and the relationship between members in groups are important. Moving in a group, consisting of two or more people, means moving the members of the group in the same direction and speed.
Methods: Deep neural network (DNN) is applied for detecting social groups in the proposed method using the parameters including Euclidean distance, Proximity distance, Motion causality, Trajectory shape, and Heat-maps. First, features between pairs of all people in the video are extracted, and then the matrix of features is made. Next, the DNN learns social groups by the matrix of features.
Results: The goal is to detect two or more individuals in social groups. The proposed method with DNN and extracted features detect social groups. Finally, the proposed method’s output is compared with different methods.
Conclusion: In the latest years, the use of deep neural networks (DNNs) for learning and detecting has been increased. In this work, we used DNNs for detecting social groups with extracted features. The indexing consequences and the outputs of movies characterize the utility of DNNs with extracted features.
