Find Clothing

Clothing analysis provides the location of the clothing for a person who has been identified by face detection or object detection.

To determine the location of clothing

  1. Open the configuration file in which you configured your face detection or object detection task for identifying people.
  2. In the [Analysis] section, add a new analysis task by setting the AnalysisEngineN parameter. You can give the task any name, for example:

    [Analysis]
    AnalysisEngine0=FaceDetect
    AnalysisEngine1=Clothing
  3. Create a new configuration section to contain the task settings, and set the following parameters:

    Type The analysis engine to use. Set this parameter to Clothing.
    Input

    The track on which you want to run analysis. You can specify:

    • the DataWithSource output track from a face detection task.
    • the ResultWithSource output track from any face analysis task.
    • the ResultWithSource output track from an object detection task, when that task runs detection using the pre-trained person detector.
    ClothingMode (Optional) A comma-separated list of regions to identify. You can use the values Full (clothing covering the full body), Upper (upper body), and Lower (lower body). By default, clothing analysis only identifies the location of the clothing covering the full body.

    For example:

    [Clothing]
    Type=Clothing
    Input=FaceDetect.ResultWithSource
    ClothingMode=Upper,Lower
  4. Save and close the configuration file. HPE recommends that you save your configuration files in the location specified by the ConfigDirectory parameter.

You can run clothing analysis followed by a color analysis task to find the dominant color of a person's clothing. For more information about the color analysis task, see Color Clustering. The following procedure describes how to add a task for color analysis.

To determine the color of clothing

  1. Open the configuration file in which you configured the clothing analysis task.
  2. In the [Analysis] section, add a new analysis task (for color analysis) by setting the AnalysisEngineN parameter. You can give the task any name, for example:

    [Analysis]
    AnalysisEngine0=FaceDetect
    AnalysisEngine1=Clothing
    AnalysisEngine2=ClothingColors
  3. Create a new configuration section to contain the task settings, and set the following parameters:

    Type The analysis engine to use. Set this parameter to ColorCluster.
    Input The track that contains information about the location of the clothing (and the image to analyze). Set this parameter to the ResultWithSource output track from your clothing analysis task. For example, if your clothing analysis task is named Clothing, set this parameter to Clothing.ResultWithSource.
    RestrictToInputRegion A Boolean value that specifies whether to analyze a region of the input image or video frame that is specified in the input record, instead of the entire image. Set this parameter to TRUE, because you want the color analysis task to analyze only the region that represents the clothing, and not the entire image.

    For example:

    [ClothingColors]
    Type=ColorCluster
    Input=Clothing.ResultWithSource
    RestrictToInputRegion=True
  4. Save and close the configuration file. HPE recommends that you save your configuration files in the location specified by the ConfigDirectory parameter.
