Abstract : In the given image identifying the existence of a required object is the concern of the object detection process. This is quite natural for Human without any effort, however making a machine to detect an object in image is tedious. To make machines to recognize the objects, the feature descriptor algorithms are to be implemented. The general object detection approaches use collection of local and global descriptors to represent an image. Difficulties arise during this process when there is variation in lightening, positioning, rotation, mirroring, occlusion, scaling etc., of the same object in different image scenes. To overcome these difficulties, we need combination of features that detects the object in the image scene. But there exist lot of descriptors that can be used. Hence, finding the required number of feature descriptors for object detection is a crucial task. The question that comes out here is how to select the optimum number of descriptors to achieve optimum accuracy? The answer for the question is an optimization algorithm, which can be employed to select the best combination of the descriptors with maximum detection accuracy. This paper proposing an Evolutionary Computation (EC) based approach with the Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm to find the optimal combination of feature descriptors to achieve optimal object detection accuracy. The proposed approach is implemented and its superiority is verified with four different images and results obtained are presented in this paper.
