Paper Abstract

The main function of an evidence accrual system for image understanding is to sequentially update information on scene objects based on new sensor data or on non-sensory information such as intelligence. This paper presents a concept for sequentially updating information on scene objects. Scene objects and background (clutter) are represented by attributed relational graphs in which nodes represent objects of interest and arcs represent inter-object relations. Dynamic recognition/identification of nodes is acomplished by a belief/disbelief measure. Our experimental results with infrared images show improvements in natural scene object recognition over traditional image processing methods.
