In this paper we present a framework for pixel-wise object segmentation of road scenes that combines motion and appearance features. It is designed to handle street-level imagery such as that on Google Street View and Microsoft Bing Maps. We formulate the problem in a CRF framework in order to probabilistically model the label likelihoods and the a priori(More)
The problems of dense stereo reconstruction and object class segmentation can both be formulated as Random Field labeling problems, in which every pixel in the image is assigned a label corresponding to either its disparity, or an object class such as road or building. While these two problems are mutually informative, no attempt has been made to jointly(More)
The problems of object class segmentation [2], which assigns an object label such as road or building to every pixel in the image and dense stereo reconstruction, in which every pixel within an image is labelled with a disparity [1], are well suited for being solved jointly. Both approaches formulate the problem of providing a correct labelling of an image(More)
Computer vision algorithms for individual tasks such as object recognition, detection and segmentation have shown impressive results in the recent past. The next challenge is to integrate all these algorithms and address the problem of scene understanding. This paper is a step towards this goal. We present a probabilistic framework for reasoning about(More)
Recently, Krahenbuhl and Koltun proposed an efficient inference method for densely connected pairwise random fields using the mean-field approximation for a Conditional Random Field (CRF). However, they restrict their pairwise weights to take the form of a weighted combination of Gaussian kernels where each Gaussian component is allowed to take only zero(More)
Semantic image segmentation is a problem of simultaneous segmentation and recognition of an input image into regions and their associated categorical labels, such as person, car or cow. A popular way to achieve this goal is to assign a label to every pixel in the input image and impose simple structural constraints on the output label space. Efficient(More)
Linear SVMs are efficient in both training and testing, however the data in real applications is rarely linearly separable. Non-linear kernel SVMs are too computationally intensive for applications with large-scale data sets. Recently locally linear classifiers have gained popularity due to their efficiency whilst remaining competitive with kernel methods.(More)
Humans describe images in terms of nouns and adjectives while algorithms operate on images represented as sets of pixels. Bridging this gap between how humans would like to access images versus their typical representation is the goal of image parsing, which involves assigning object and attribute labels to pixels. In this article we propose treating nouns(More)
On the one hand, mainly within the computer vision community, multi-resolution image labelling problems with pixel, super-pixel and object levels, have made great progress towards the modelling of holistic scene understanding. On the other hand, mainly within the robotics and graphics communities, multi-resolution 3<sup>D</sup> representations of the world(More)
