This nodelet is used to compute the saliency of a image. The image can be composed to any feature space, however the current nodelet is takes only 3 channel RGB image and computes the saliency map.
The original code is implemented by the authors of the paper [Human detection using a mobile platform and novel features derived from a visual saliency mechanism] (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0262885609001371). Please cite this paper should you use the code. However, there are minor changes to the original code including the MultiThreading support using OpenMP.
Currently only supports “BGR8” (3 channel RGB intensity image)
2) Number of threads to used for execution
true) Prints the frame rate to the frame
