Abstract. Developing systems to find injured people quickly after natural disasters is an important topic. In recent years, special attention has been paid to the use of UAV images for this purpose. In this regard, an accurate and strong feature is required. It is shown that the Sector Ring Histogram of Oriented Gradients, is a feature very much independent from rotation and scale. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the performance of a human detection algorithm which is based on this strong feature. Experiments carried out suggest that using SRHOG feature humans can be detected with an accuracy of 73.69%. However, despite giving good accuracy, SRHOG results contain more than 33.33 % false labels.
