Paper Abstract

A novel automatic Video Object (VO) segmentation method is presented in this paper, which is based on intersection of frame differences. Horizontal scan is used to acquire coarse VO mask and edge detection is performed on VO boundaries to remove uncovered background contained in the intersection. And morphological operator open is applied to smooth VO contours after extraction. Experimental results show that it is accurate and especially efficient, and can wonderfully meet the real-time requirements of applications such as stationary camera video surveillance.
