A robust pedestrian detection approach in thermal infrared imageries for an all-day surveillance is proposed. Firstly, the candidate regions which are likely to contain pedestrians are extracted based on a saliency detection method. Then a deep convolutional network with a multi-task loss is constructed to recognize the pedestrians. The experimental results show the superiority of the proposed approach in pedestrian detection.
