This paper proposes a scheme to detect and locate the players and the ball on the grass playfield in soccer videos. [...] Key Method We employ Euclidean distance transform to extract skeletons for every foreground blob, and then perform shape analysis to remove false alarms (non-player and non-ball blobs) and cut-off the artifacts (mostly due to playfield lines) based on skeleton pruning and reverse Euclidean distance transform. Results are given to demonstrate the proposed algorithm works well in soccer video…Expand
