    It is not trivial to build a classifier where the domain is the space of symmetric positive definite matrices such as non-singular region covariance descriptors lying on a Riemannian manifold. This chapter describes a boosted classification approach that incorporates the a priori knowledge of the geometry of the Riemannian space. The presented classifier incorporated into a rejection cascade and applied to single image human detection task. Results on INRIA and DaimlerChrysler pedestrian datasets are reported.
