Tracking Objects with Shadows

  title={Tracking Objects with Shadows},
  author={Hao Jiang and Simon Fraser},
In this paper, we present a new method for tracking objects with shadows. Traditional motion-based tracking schemes cannot usually distinguish the shadow from the object itself, and this results in a falsely captured object shape. If we want to utilize the object’s shape information for a pattern recognition task, this poses a severe difficulty. In this paper we present a color processing scheme to project the image into an illumination invariant space such that the shadow’s effect is greatly… CONTINUE READING
