This paper presents a novel appearance-based method for person re-identification. The core idea is to rank and select different body parts on the basis of the discriminating power of their characteristic features. In our approach, we first segment the pedestrian images into meaningful parts, then we extract features from such parts as well as from the whole body and finally, we perform a salience analysis based on regression coefficients. Given a set of individuals, our method is able to… 

On the Importance of Appearance and Interaction Feature Representations for Person Re-identification

TLDR
This paper proposes a novel multi-branch architecture with experts that learn distinct representations based on (i) the global image appearance and (ii) the interaction between features, and uses a novel attention-based pooling to automatically extract semantically-rich and discriminative features from different regions of a person image.

Exploiting Multiple Detections for Person Re-Identification

TLDR
This paper presents a CWBTF framework for the task of transforming appearance from one camera to another, and a re-identification framework where the pedestrian images are segmented into meaningful parts and features are extracted from such parts, as well as from the whole body.

Exploiting Gaussian mixture importance for person re-identification

TLDR
A Gaussian Mixture Importance Estimation (GMIE) approach for ReID is proposed, which exploits the GaussianMixture Models (GMMs) to estimate the observed commonalities of similar and dissimilar person pairs in the feature space.

Person Re-identification Using Robust Brightness Transfer Functions Based on Multiple Detections

TLDR
This paper proposes the use of Minimum Multiple Cumulative Brightness Transfer Functions to model this appearance variations, a multiple frame-based learning approach which leverages consecutive detections of each individual to transfer the appearance, rather than learning brightness transfer function from pairs of images.

Impact of Kernel-PCA on Different Features for Person Re-Identification

TLDR
This work comprehensively analyzed the effect of kernel-based principal component analysis (PCA) on some existing high-dimensional person re-identification feature extractors and proved that the kernel is very effective on different state-of-the-art high- dimensional feature descriptors.

A Comprehensive Overview of Person Re-Identification Approaches

TLDR
A comprehensive overview of person re-identification approaches is provided to assist researchers in quickly understand this field with preference as well as to provide a more structured framework.

Exploiting multiple detections to learn robust brightness transfer functions in re-identification systems

TLDR
This paper proposes the use of Cumulative Weighted Brightness Transfer Functions to model this appearance variations in re-identification systems, multiple frame-based learning approach which leverages consecutive detections of each individual to transfer the appearance, rather than learning brightness transfer function from pairs of images.

Exploiting Local Shape Information for Cross-Modal Person Re-identification

TLDR
It is found that combining the estimated features on both modalities can sometimes help to better reduce visual ambiguities of appearance features caused by lighting conditions and clothes and an effective metric learning approach is proposed to obtain a better re-identification accuracy across RGB and depth.

Person re-identification by symmetry-driven accumulation of local features

In this paper, we present an appearance-based method for person re-identification. It consists in the extraction of features that model three complementary aspects of the human appearance: the

Person Re-identification by Articulated Appearance Matching

TLDR
This work shows how to perform single image re-identification by matching signatures coming from articulated appearances, and how to strengthen this process in multi-shot re-Identification by using Custom Pictorial Structures (CPS) to produce improved body localizations and appearance signatures.

A Multiple Component Matching Framework for Person Re-identification

TLDR
A novel person re-identification technique is presented as a direct, simple implementation of the proposed Multiple Component Matching (MCM) framework, focused in particular on robustness to varying lighting conditions, and can attain state of the art performances.

Person re-identification with a PTZ camera: An introductory study

TLDR
An introductory study that paves the way for a new kind of person re-identification, by exploiting a single Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) camera, and shows that the proposed compound of two images overwhelms standard multi-shot descriptions, composed by many more pictures.

TLDR
A new appearance model based on spatial covariance regions extracted from human body parts is proposed, which outperforms state of the art methods in re-identification of people over a network of cameras.

TLDR
A new appearance model combining information from multiple images to obtain highly discriminative human signature, called Mean Riemannian Covariance Grid (MRCG) is proposed, which outperforms state of the art methods.

TLDR
This work converts the person re-identification problem from an absolute scoring p roblem to a relative ranking problem and develops an novel Ensemble RankSVM to overcome the scalability limitation problem suffered by existing SVM-based ranking methods.

TLDR
The results show that people can be re-detected in images where they do not face the camera, and two extensions improving the pictorial structure detections are described.

TLDR
A novel methodology for re-identification, based on Pictorial Structures (PS), which learns the appearance of an individual, improving the localization of its parts, thus obtaining more reliable visual characteristics for re -identification.
