This paper derives an optimal estimator for the purpose of online visual contour tracking. Starting from Bayesian segmentation as the measurement strategy, we use a bottom-up approach to design the estimator. In particular, it is shown that additive imaging noise leads to multiplicative segmentation uncertainty from which a geometric averaging update model… CONTINUE READING
