In this paper, we investigate two new strategies to detect objects accurately and efficiently using deep convolutional neural network: 1) scale-dependent pooling and 2) layer-wise cascaded rejection classifiers. The scale-dependent pooling (SDP) improves detection accuracy by exploiting appropriate convolutional features depending on the scale of candidate object proposals. The cascaded rejection classifiers (CRC) effectively utilize convolutional features and eliminate negative object proposals in a cascaded manner, which greatly speeds up the detection while maintaining high accuracy. In combination of the two, our method achieves significantly better accuracy compared to other state-of-the-arts in three challenging datasets, PASCAL object detection challenge, KITTI object detection benchmark and newly collected Inner-city dataset, while being more efficient.
