We propose a novel framework for contour based object detection and recognition, which we formulate as a joint contour fragment grouping and labeling problem. For a given set of contours of model shapes, we simultaneously perform selection of relevant contour fragments in edge images, grouping of the selected contour fragments, and their matching to the(More)
We introduce a new interpretation of multiscale random fields (MSRFs) that admits efficient optimization in the framework of regular (single level) random fields (RFs). It is based on a new operator, called append, that combines sets of random variables (RVs) to single RVs. We assume that a MSRF can be decomposed into disjoint trees that link RVs at(More)
In this paper we propose a novel framework for contour based object detection from cluttered environments. Given a contour model for a class of objects, it is first decomposed into fragments hierarchically. Then, we group these fragments into part bundles, where a part bundle can contain overlapping fragments. Given a new image with set of edge fragments we(More)
