International audience; Nowadays pedestrian detectors are fast, scale-robust and quite efficient. Embedded within a UAV such a detector would open new possibilities. In this paper the very well known HOG detector is adapted for UAV use and a new kind of training dataset is proposed in order to increase the detector's angular robustness. A more appropriate set of detection windows, together with a new detection pipeline, is proposed in order to reduce the search space and consequently reduce the computation time. Tests conducted using the improved detector show significantly better results on aerial images.
