Paper Abstract Most of the approaches for indoor RGBD semantic labeling focus on using pixels or superpixels to train a classifier. In this paper, we implement a higher level segmentation using a hierarchy of superpixels to obtain a better segmentation for training our classifier. By focusing on meaningful segments that conform more directly to objects, […]
Citation Abstract We present an algorithm for finding temporally consistent occlusion boundaries in videos to support segmentation of dynamic scenes. We learn occlusion boundaries in a pairwise Markov random field (MRF) framework. We first estimate the probability of a spatiotemporal edge being an occlusion boundary by using appearance, flow, and geometric features. Next, we enforce […]
Paper in BMCV (2014): "Depth Extraction from Videos Using Geometric Context and Occlusion Boundaries"
We present an algorithm to estimate depth in dynamic video scenes.We present an algorithm to estimate depth in dynamic video scenes. We propose to learn and infer depth in videos from appearance, motion, occlusion boundaries, and geometric context of the scene. Using our method, depth can be estimated from unconstrained videos with no requirement of […]
Abstract We present an efficient and scalable algorithm for seg- menting 3D RGBD point clouds by combining depth, color, and temporal information using a multistage, hierarchical graph-based approach. Our algorithm processes a moving window over several point clouds to group similar regions over a graph, resulting in an initial over-segmentation. These regions are then merged […]
Abstract We present a novel algorithm for estimating the broad 3D geometric structure of outdoor video scenes. Leveraging spatio-temporal video segmentation, we decompose a dynamic scene captured by a video into geometric classes, based on predictions made by region-classifiers that are trained on appearance and motion features. By examining the homogeneity of the prediction, we […]
