Robust Computer Vision through Kernel Density Estimation
Abstract. Two new techniques based on nonparametric estimation of probability densities are introduced which improve on the performance of equivalent robust methods currently employed in computer vision. The first technique draws from the projection pursuit paradigm in statistics, and carries out regression Mestimation with a weak dependence on the accuracy of the scale estimate. The second technique exploits the properties of the multivariate adaptive mean shift, and accomplishes the fusion of uncertain measurements arising from an unknown number of sources. As an example, the two techniques are extensively used in an algorithm for the recovery of multiple structures from heavily corrupted data.
