Paper Abstract

As a fundamental step for successful human detection via thermal infrared imagery, image segmentation is always difficult. In this paper, we propose an approach for segmentation of infrared human sequences captured by the camera mounted on a moving platform. The approach starts to detect moving regions that may contain humans in a frame via motion compensation and frame differencing. Next, it detects static regions that may also contain humans in the same frame via intensity thresholding. Finally, fusing the outputs from previous stages by morphological operations, it reaches algorithmic result. Experimental results indicate that the proposed approach outperforms its rivals in segmentation accuracy.
