A Bayesian Approach for Segmentation in Stereo Image Sequences
EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing volume 2002, Article number: 940529 (2002)
Stereoscopic image sequence processing has been the focus of considerable attention in recent literature for videoconference applications. A novel Bayesian scheme is proposed in this paper, for the segmentation of a noisy stereoscopic image sequence. More specifically, occlusions and visible foreground and background regions are detected between the left and the right frame while the uncovered-background areas are identified between two successive frames of the sequence. Combined hypotheses are used for the formulation of the Bayes decision rule which employs a single intensity-difference measurement at each pixel. Experimental results illustrating the performance of the proposed technique are presented and evaluated in videoconference applications.
