Extraction and recognition of periodically deforming objects by continuous, spatio-temporal shape description

Abstract

We demonstrate a novel approach to modelling arbitrary temporally-deforming objects using spatio-temporal Fourier descriptors. This is a continuous boundary descriptor, which can handle shapes that vary in a periodic manner (such as a walking subject). As such, we can handle non-rigid, moving shapes that self-occlude. We show how this approach has led to… (More)
