Moving shadow detection is a fundamental step in video-surveillance applications since it is generally confused with foreground. In this paper, we propose a novel statistical non-parametric method to detect moving shadow in a road traffic image sequences. We consider a diagonal model to describe the shadow distortion in the RGB color space. A Support Vector(More)
In this paper, we present an adaptive variational segmentation algorithm of spectral-texture regions in satellite images using level set. Satellite images contain both textured and non-textured regions, so for each region cues of spectral and texture are integrated according to their discrimination power. Motivated by Fisher-Rao's linear dis-criminant(More)
In this paper, we present a probabilistic framework for edge and region grouping using conditional random field. Our model is built on a hybrid adjacency graph of atomic region and contour primitives. Unary and pairwise potentials that capture similarity, proximity and curvilinear continuity are defined. Similarity, for both region and edge cues, is(More)
In this paper, we address the issue of designing a smoke detector robust to illumination variations. Our contribution consists in resorting to color invariants as salient smoke features. More precisely, the proposed detector employs consecutively of an illumination invariant color representation, a photometric gain based background subtraction, a(More)
The goal of this work is to recover road networks from aerial images. This problem is extremely challenging because roads not only exhibit a highly varying appearance but also are usually occluded by nearby objects. Most importantly, roads are complex structures as they form connected networks of segments with slowly changing width and curvature. As an(More)
In this paper, we develop a novel Conditional Random Field (CRF) formulation to jointly extract road networks from a set of high resolution satellite images. Our fully unsupervised method relies on a pairwise CRF model defined over a set of test images, which encodes prior assumptions about the roads such as thinness, elongation. Four competitive energy(More)
