Using scene features to improve wide-area video surveillance
We introduce two novel methods to improve the performance of wide area video surveillance applications by using scene features. First, we evaluate the drift in intrinsic and extri...

Figure-ground segmentation by transferring window masks
We present a novel technique for figure-ground segmentation, where the goal is to separate all foreground objects in a test image from the background. We decompose the test image...

Motion Segmentation by Learning Homography Matrices from Motor Signals
—Motion information is an important cue for a robot to separate foreground moving objects from the static background world. Based on the observation that the motion of the backgr...

Weakly Supervised Learning of Foreground-Background Segmentation using Masked RBMs
Abstract. We propose an extension of the Restricted Boltzmann Machine (RBM) that allows the joint shape and appearance of foreground objects in cluttered images to be modeled indep...

Range Segmentation Using Visibility Constraints
Visibility constraints can aid the segmentation of foreground objects in a scene observed with multiple range imagers. Points may be labeled as foreground if they can be determine...

Real-Time Depth-of-Field Rendering Using Point Splatting on Per-Pixel Layers
We present a real-time method for rendering a depth-of-field effect based on the per-pixel layered splatting where source pixels are scattered on one of the three layers of a dest...

Foreground object detection from videos containing complex background
This paper proposes a novel method for detection and segmentation of foreground objects from a video which contains both stationary and moving background objects and undergoes bot...

A Novel Robust Statistical Method for Background Initialization and Visual Surveillance
In many visual tracking and surveillance systems, it is important to initialize a background model using a training video sequence which may include foreground objects. In such a c...

Markovian Framework for Foreground-Background-Shadow Separation of Real World Video Scenes
Abstract. In this paper we give a new model for foreground-background-shadow separation. Our method extracts the faithful silhouettes of foreground objects even if they have partly...

Actively Illuminated Objects using Graph-Cuts
This paper addresses the problem of foreground extraction using active illumination and graph-cut optimization. Our approach starts by detecting image regions that are likely to b...
