Quickest Moving Object Detection

  title={Quickest Moving Object Detection},
  author={Dong Lao and Ganesh Sundaramoorthi},
We present a general framework and method for simultaneous detection and segmentation of an object in a video that moves (or comes into view of the camera) at some unknown time in the video. The method is an online approach based on motion segmentation, and it operates under dynamic backgrounds caused by a moving camera or moving nuisances. The goal of the method is to detect and segment the object as soon as it moves. Due to stochastic variability in the video and unreliability of the motion…

A Delay Metric for Video Object Detection: What Average Precision Fails to Tell
The object detection from video is analyzed and it is pointed out that mAP alone is not sufficient to capture the temporal nature of video object detection, and a comprehensive metric, Average Delay (AD), is proposed to measure and compare detection delay.

The proposed tracker allows to deal with partial occlusions, stop and go motion in very challenging situations and demonstrates results on a number of different real sequences.
Segmentation of Moving Objects by Long Term Video Analysis
This paper demonstrates that motion will be exploited most effectively, if it is regarded over larger time windows, and suggests working with a paradigm that starts with semi-dense motion cues first and that fills up textureless areas afterwards based on color.
A Novel Video Dataset for Change Detection Benchmarking
Various aspects of the new data set, quantitative performance metrics used, and comparative results for over two dozen change detection algorithms are discussed, including important conclusions on solved and remaining issues in change detection, and future challenges for the scientific community are described.

This work shows how to add spatial constraints to the mixture formulations and presents a variant of the EM algorithm that makes use of both the form and the motion constraints and estimates the number of segments given knowledge about the level of model failure expected in the sequence.
Occlusion Detection and Motion Estimation with Convex Optimization
We tackle the problem of simultaneously detecting occlusions and estimating optical flow. We show that, under standard assumptions of Lambertian reflection and static illumination, the task can be
Self-Occlusions and Disocclusions in Causal Video Object Segmentation
The method infers deformation fields that are piecewise smooth by construction without the need for an explicit regularizer and the associated choice of weight and groups its components with objects by leveraging on the complementarity of motion and appearance cues.
Motion Trajectory Segmentation via Minimum Cost Multicuts
This paper provides a method to create a long-term point trajectory graph with attractive and repulsive binary terms and outperform state-of-the-art methods based on spectral clustering on the FBMS-59 dataset and on the motion subtask of the VSB100 dataset.
Comparative study of background subtraction algorithms
A comparative study of several state of the art background subtraction methods to provide a solid analytic ground to underscore the strengths and weaknesses of the most widely implemented motion detection methods.
Layered image motion with explicit occlusions, temporal consistency, and depth ordering
A new probabilistic model of optical flow in layers that addresses many of the shortcomings of previous approaches and achieves state-of-the-art results on the Middlebury benchmark and produces meaningful scene segmentations as well as detected occlusion regions.
A Fully-Connected Layered Model of Foreground and Background Flow
This work forms a fully-connected layered model that enables global reasoning about the complicated segmentations of real objects, and combines these ideas with a layered flow model, and finds that the long-range connections greatly improve segmentation into figure-ground layers when compared with locally connected MRF models.
