On Properties of Active Shape Models

  title={On Properties of Active Shape Models},
  author={Mikkel B. Stegmann},
Contrary to many other deformable models Active Shape Models (ASM) represents a general way of performing non-rigid object segmentation. Shape variation is extracted from a training set by applying principal component analysis to point distribution models, rather than hand crafting a priori knowledge into the model. In this paper we investigate di erent properties of ASM. Topics treated are the generation of plausible shapes, tangent space transformation and model to image tting assisted by… CONTINUE READING
