In this paper, we present an appearance-based method for person re-identification. It consists in the extraction of features that model three complementary aspects of the human appearance: the overall chromatic content, the spatial arrangement of colors into stable regions, and the presence of recurrent local motifs with high entropy. All this information(More)
We propose a novel methodology for re-identification, based on Pictorial Structures (PS). Whenever face or other biometric information is missing, humans recognize an individual by selectively focusing on the body parts, looking for part-to-part correspondences. We want to take inspiration from this strategy in a re-identification context, using PS to(More)
This paper proposes new methodology for the detection and matching of salient points over several views of an object. The process is composed by three main phases. In the first step, detection is carried out by adopting a new perceptually-inspired 3D saliency measure. Such measure allows the detection of few sparse salient points that characterize(More)
We propose a novel appearance-based method for person re-identification, that condenses a set of frames of an individual into a highly informative signature, called the Histogram Plus Epitome, HPE. It incorporates complementary global and local statistical descriptions of the human appearance, focusing on the overall chromatic content via histogram(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel appearancebased method for person re-identification, that condenses a set of frames of the same individual into a highly informative signature, called Histogram Plus Epitome, HPE. It incorporates complementary global and local statistical descriptions of the human appearance, focusing on the overall chromatic content, via(More)
Feature-based approaches have recently become very popular in computer vision and image analysis applications, and are becoming a promising direction in shape retrieval. SHREC’10 robust feature detection and description benchmark simulates the feature detection and description stages of feature-based shape retrieval algorithms. The benchmark tests the(More)
This paper presents a novel algorithm for the automatic 3D localization of a set of sensors in an unknown environment. Given the measures of a set of time of arrival delays at each sensor, the approach simultaneously estimates the 3D position of the sensors and the sources that have generated the event. Such inference is obtained with no assumption about(More)
We present a novel approach for detecting social interactions in a crowded scene by employing solely visual cues. The detection of social interactions in unconstrained scenarios is a valuable and important task, especially for surveillance purposes. Our proposal is inspired by the social signaling literature, and in particular it considers the sociological(More)
Clustering of sequential or temporal data is more challenging than traditional clustering as dynamic observations should be processed rather than static measures. This paper proposes a Hidden Markov Model (HMM)-based technique suitable for clustering of data sequences. The main aspect of the work is the use of a probabilistic model-based approach using HMM(More)
