Target detection in high-contrast, multi-object images and movies is challenging. This difficulty results from different areas and objects/people having varying pixel distributions, contrast, and intensity properties. This work introduces a new region-focused feature detection (RFD) method to tackle this problem and improve target detection accuracy. The RFD method divides the input image into several smaller ones so that as much of the image as possible is processed. Each of these zones has its own contrast and intensity attributes computed. Deep recurrent learning is then used to iteratively extract these features using a similarity measure from training inputs corresponding to various regions. The target can be located by combining features from many locations that overlap. The recognized target is compared to the inputs used during training, with the help of contrast and intensity attributes, to increase accuracy. The feature distribution across regions is also used for repeated training of the learning paradigm. This method efficiently lowers false rates during region selection and pattern matching with numerous extraction instances. Therefore, the suggested method provides greater accuracy by singling out distinct regions and filtering out misleading rate-generating features. The accuracy, similarity index, false rate, extraction ratio, processing time, and others are used to assess the effectiveness of the proposed approach. The proposed RFD improves the similarity index by 10.69%, extraction ratio by 9.04%, and precision by 13.27%. The false rate and processing time are reduced by 7.78% and 9.19%, respectively.
