Remote Sensing Target Detection Inspired by Scene Information and Inter-Object Relations

keywords: Remote sensing, inter-object relation, scene information
Remote sensing target detection has been widely used in industries. In various application scenarios, complicated contexts may inhibit target identification and reduce detection accuracy, especially in multi-target detection tasks. In this paper, a new remote sensing target detection method based on structural reasoning is proposed to improve target detection performance by integrating inter-object relationships and scene information. Based on inter-object information, a relation structure graph is designed to reduce errors and missed targets. To establish contextual constraints, semantic is used as a prior information for Bayesian criterion based on scene information. Experiments conducted on HRRSD dataset show that the average accuracy of the proposed method is 10.7 % higher than the state-of-the-art algorithms. The experimental results confirm that the proposed algorithm can achieve significant improvements and adapt to complex scenes in remote sensing by mining contextual information at both feature and semantic levels.
