We focus on the segmentation of human regions, an area that has had a significant amount of research. [...] Key Method A color and thermal combination camera measures the temperature distribution of its field of view. This system segments the human region from the video sequence - captured by the color camera in real time - with high robustness against lighting and background conditions.Expand
