  Abstract/
Summary
In this paper, we present the use of the wavelet transform for image object detection. We decompose image into first level subbands and remove the approximation subband. Inverse wavelet transform gives us an image with enhanced details, which we use for segmentation of image areas to objects. We take into consideration the size scaling of object near and away from camera. A comparison of the performance of the suggested algorithm is performed.
