Existing approaches to nonrigid structure from motion assume that the instantaneous 3D shape of a deforming object is a linear combination of basis shapes, which have to be estimated anew for each video sequence. In contrast, we propose that the evolving 3D structure be described by a linear combination of basis trajectories. The principal advantage of this(More)
In this paper, we address the issue of tracking moving objects in an environment covered by multiple uncalibrated cameras with overlapping fields of view, typical of most surveillance setups. In such a scenario, it is essential to establish correspondence between tracks of the same object, seen in different cameras, to recover complete information about the(More)
Video segmentation is different from segmentation of a single image. While several correct solutions may exist for segmenting a single image, there needs to be a consistency among segmentations of each frame for video segmenta-tion. Previous approaches of video segmentation concentrate on motion, or combine motion and color information in a batch fashion.(More)
Existing approaches to nonrigid structure from motion assume that the instantaneous 3D shape of a deforming object is a linear combination of basis shapes. These bases are object dependent and therefore have to be estimated anew for each video sequence. In contrast, we propose a dual approach to describe the evolving 3D structure in trajectory space by a(More)
In factorization approaches to nonrigid structure from motion, the 3D shape of a deforming object is usually modeled as a linear combination of a small number of basis shapes. The original approach to simultaneously estimate the shape basis and nonrigid structure exploited ortho-normality constraints for metric rectification. Recently, it has been asserted(More)
Tracking humans is a diicult problem because of the non-rigid nature of the human body, and the frequent occlusion encountered among people. We present a framework to track multiple people in a xed camera situation. Our framework deals implicitly with occlusion, and is able to correctly label people during occlusion. We rst segment a person into classes of(More)
Estrogens regulate body weight and reproduction primarily through actions on estrogen receptor-α (ERα). However, ERα-expressing cells mediating these effects are not identified. We demonstrate that brain-specific deletion of ERα in female mice causes abdominal obesity stemming from both hyperphagia and hypometabolism. Hypometabolism and abdominal obesity,(More)
Most nonrigid objects exhibit temporal regularities in their deformations. Recently it was proposed that these regularities can be parameterized by assuming that the nonrigid structure lies in a small dimensional trajectory space. In this paper, we propose a factorization approach for 3D reconstruction from multiple static cameras under the compact(More)
Multiple cameras are needed to completely cover an environment for monitoring activity. To track people successfully in multiple perspective imagery, one needs to establish correspondence between objects captured in multiple cameras. We present a system for tracking people in multiple uncalibrated cameras. The system is able to discover spatial(More)
