Elderly Fall Detection Using CCTV Cameras under Partial Occlusion of the Subjects Body

One of the possible dangers that older people face in their daily lives is falling. Occlusion is one of the biggest challenges of vision-based fall detection systems and degrades their detection performance considerably. To tackle this problem, we synthesize specifically-designed occluded videos for training fall detection systems using existing datasets. Then, by defining a new cost function, we introduce a framework for weighted training of fall detection models using occluded and un-occluded videos, which can be applied to any learnable fall detection system. Finally, we use both a non-deep and deep model to evaluate the effect of the proposed weighted training method. Experiments show that the proposed method can improve the classification accuracy by 36% for a non-deep model and 55% for a deep model in occlusion conditions. Moreover, it is shown that the proposed training framework can also significantly improve the detection performance of a deep network on normal un-occluded samples.
