Background estimation and removal based on the joint use of range and color data produces superior results than can be achieved with either data source alone. [...] Key Method We describe and demonstrate a background estimation method based on a multidimensional (range and color) clustering at each image pixel. Segmentation of the foreground in a given frame is performed via comparison with background statistics in range and normalized color. Important implementation issues such as treatment of shadows and low…Expand
