Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Highly accurate pedestrian detection technology is required for functions such as automatic emergency braking, which are important in preventing traffic accidents and reducing damage. Visible light cameras are generally used for pedestrian detection. However, there is a problem that clear images cannot be captured in low-light environments such as at night. On the other hand, the combination of near-infrared (NIR) camera and near-infrared light can capture clear images even in low-light environments. Thus it is expected to develop the pedestrian detection technology using them. Previous studies on pedestrian detection from NIR images include methods using deep convolutional neural networks (CNN) with real-time computation and high detection accuracy. However, it is difficult to detect distant pedestrians in small areas of the image because convolution and pooling are combined in the previous study CNN. In this paper, we propose a method to equalize the apparent size of distant pedestrians as preprocessing of CNN input. Specifically, it extracts the time-varying pixels from the input consecutive frames and adaptively chooses the pixel blocks to be enlarged. We aim to improve the accuracy of pedestrian detection in the postprocessing by inputting the enlarged image to the CNN.
