Weapons Detection in Visual Data

To overcome these problems, we propose Orientation Aware Weapons Detection algorithm which provides oriented bounding box and improved detection performance of weapons. The proposed model provides orientation not only using angle as classification problem by dividing angle into eight classes but also angle as regression problem. For training our model of weapon detection, a dataset comprising of more than six thousand weapons images is gathered from the web and then manually annotated with position oriented bounding boxes. The proposed model is evaluated on this dataset, and the comparative analysis with off-the shelf object detectors yields superior performance of the proposed model.

The dataset and the implementation is publicly available at at this github link.
