Since the apparition of the first object detection systems in the late 1960s, the complexity of faced scenarios has been continuously growing. From a small set of simple objects in a homogeneous background, where simple alignment strategies or the use of geometric primitives were enough to recognize them, to nowadays, where we are dealing with sets of thousands of complex objects in cluttered scenes, where more sophisticated methods to describe and recognize objects are necessary. In this paper, we present an approach to the object detection problem based on Probabilistic Darwin Machines (PDM), where one of the most used object detection systems has been redefined in order to allow the use large feature sets, which are able to better describe the objects. Two different PDM are used in combination with a large set of visual features in order to learn an object detection system for five different real world visual object classes.
