In this paper, we introduce a new probabilistic method which integrates building extraction with change detection in remotely sensed image pairs. A global optimization process attempts to find the optimal configuration of buildings, considering the observed data, prior knowledge, and interactions between the neighboring building parts. We present(More)
In in this paper, we propose a new model regarding foreground and shadow detection in video sequences. The model works without detailed a priori object-shape information, and it is also appropriate for low and unstable frame rate video sources. Contribution is presented in three key issues: 1) we propose a novel adaptive shadow model, and show the(More)
We propose a new Bayesian method for detecting the regions of object displacements in aerial image pairs. We use a robust but coarse 2-D image registration algorithm. Our main challenge is to eliminate the registration errors from the extracted change map. We introduce a three-layer Markov random field (L(3)MRF) model which integrates information from two(More)
In this paper we introduce a probabilistic approach of building extraction in remotely sensed images. To cope with data heterogeneity we construct a flexible hierarchical framework which can create various building appearance models from different elementary feature based modules. A global optimization process attempts to find the optimal configuration of(More)
In this paper, we give a probabilistic model for automatic change detection on airborne images taken with moving cameras. To ensure robustness, we adopt an unsupervised coarse matching instead of a precise image registration. The challenge of the proposed model is to eliminate the registration errors, noise and the parallax artifacts caused by the static(More)
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 background like colors and shadows are observable on the image. It does not need any a priori information about the shapes of the objects, it assumes only they are not point-wise. The(More)
In this paper we introduce a novel surveillance system, which uses 3D information extracted from multiple cameras to detect, track and re-identify people. The detection method is based on a 3D Marked Point Process model using two pixel-level features extracted from multi-plane projections of binary foreground masks, and uses a stochastic optimization(More)
