The identification of shadow and shading boundaries is a key step towards reducing the imaging effects that are caused by direct illumination of the light source in the scene. Discriminating shadow boundaries from images of natural scenes has been widely applied in the field of computer vision such as object recognition, intelligent monitoring and image understanding. In this paper, we propose a method to identify shadow boundaries based on multiple kernel learning. We first extract all… CONTINUE READING
