The recognition and analysis of animate objects using neural networks and active contour models
: In this paper we describe a method for tracking walking humans in the visual field. Active contour models are used to track moving objects in a sequence of images. The resulting ...

3D Data Driven Prediction for Active Contour Models with Application to Car Tracking
In this paper we apply a new data driven 3D prediction step for active contour models to car tracking on highways. The so called 3D bounding volume (BV) is a coarse 3D representat...

An Active Contour Model without Edges
In this paper, we propose a new model for active contours to detect objects in a given image, based on techniques of curve evolution, Mumford-Shah functional for segmentation and l...

Tooth Contour Extraction for Matching Dental Radiographs
In dental biometrics [1] [2], the contours of teeth in dental radiographs are utilized for human identification. However, in many images, the contours of teeth are fuzzy and only ...
