A Background Layer Model for Object Tracking Through Occlusion

  title={A Background Layer Model for Object Tracking Through Occlusion},
  author={Yue Zhou and Hai Tao},
Motion layer estimation has recently emerged as a promising object tracking method. In this paper, we extend previous research on layer-based tracker by introducing the concept of background occluding layers and explicitly inferring depth ordering of foreground layers. The background occluding layers lie in front of, behind, and in between foreground layers. Each pixel in the background regions belongs to one of these layers and occludes all the foreground layers behind it. Together with the… CONTINUE READING
