Extraction of Human Body Using Hybrid Silhouette Extraction Method in Intelligent Robot System

지능형 로봇 시스템에서 하이브리드 실루엣 추출 방법을 이용한 인간의 몸 추출

  • Published : 2005.12.01


This paper discusses a human body extraction method for intelligent robot system. The intelligent robot system requires more robust silhouette extraction method because it has internal vibration and low resolution. The new hybrid silhouette extraction method is proposed to overcome this constrained environment. The temporal and gradient information is combined as hybrid silhouette. The motion region model is used to adjust combining parameters in hybrid silhouette. Finally, the experimental results show the superiority of the proposed method.
