This paper presents the method for detecting pedestrian recently implemented on the ARGO vehicle. The perception of the environment is performed through the sole processing of images acquired from a vision system installed on board of the vehicle: the analysis of a monocular image delivers a first coarse detection, while a distance refinement is performed thanks to a stereo vision technique.
