After Background Filtering…

11
Background Filtering My algorithm based on: My algorithm based on: “Learning Patterns of Activity using Real-Time Tracking” C. Stauffer and W.E.L. Grimson. IEEE Trans. On Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence. August 2000 The history of each pixel is modelled by a sequence of Gaussian distributions The history of each pixel is modelled by a sequence of Gaussian distributions

12
Multi-dimensional Gaussian Distributions Described mathematically as: Described mathematically as: More easily visualised as: More easily visualised as:(2-Dimensional)

13
Simplifying…. Calculating the full Gaussian for every pixel in frame is very, very slow Calculating the full Gaussian for every pixel in frame is very, very slow Therefore I use a linear approximation Therefore I use a linear approximation

14
How do we use this to represent a pixel? Stauffer and Grimson suggest using a static number of Gaussians for each pixel Stauffer and Grimson suggest using a static number of Gaussians for each pixel This was found to be inefficient – so the number of Gaussians used to represent each pixel is variable This was found to be inefficient – so the number of Gaussians used to represent each pixel is variable

15
Weights Each Gaussian carries a weight value Each Gaussian carries a weight value This weight is a measure of how well the Gaussian represents the history of the pixel This weight is a measure of how well the Gaussian represents the history of the pixel If a pixel is found to match a Gaussian then the weight is increased and vice-versa If a pixel is found to match a Gaussian then the weight is increased and vice-versa If the weight drops below a threshold then that Gaussian is eliminated If the weight drops below a threshold then that Gaussian is eliminated

16
Matching Each incoming pixel value must be checked against all the Gaussians at that location Each incoming pixel value must be checked against all the Gaussians at that location If a match is found then the value of that Gaussian is updated If a match is found then the value of that Gaussian is updated If there is no match then a new Gaussian is created with a low weight If there is no match then a new Gaussian is created with a low weight

17
Updating If a Gaussian matches a pixel, then the value of that Gaussian is updated using the current value If a Gaussian matches a pixel, then the value of that Gaussian is updated using the current value The rate of learning is greater in the early stages when the model is being formed The rate of learning is greater in the early stages when the model is being formed

18
Colour Spaces If RGB is used then the background filtering is sensitive to shadows If RGB is used then the background filtering is sensitive to shadows The use of a colour space that separates intensity information from chromatic information overcomes this The use of a colour space that separates intensity information from chromatic information overcomes this For this reason the YUV colour space is used For this reason the YUV colour space is used

22
The Story So Far… Basic principle of background filtering Basic principle of background filtering Stages necessary in maintaining a background model Stages necessary in maintaining a background model How it is applied to tracking How it is applied to tracking

23
Moving Camera Sequences Basic Idea is the same as before Basic Idea is the same as before Detect and track objects moving within a scene Detect and track objects moving within a scene BUT – this time the camera is not stationary, so everything is moving BUT – this time the camera is not stationary, so everything is moving

24
Motion Segmentation Use a motion estimation algorithm on the whole frame Use a motion estimation algorithm on the whole frame Iteratively apply the same algorithm to areas that do not conform to this motion to find all motions present Iteratively apply the same algorithm to areas that do not conform to this motion to find all motions present Problem – this is very, very slow Problem – this is very, very slow

25
Motion Compensated Background Filtering Basic Principle Basic Principle Develop and maintain background model as previously Develop and maintain background model as previously Determine global motion and use this to update the model between frames Determine global motion and use this to update the model between frames

26
Advantages Only one motion model has to be found Only one motion model has to be found This is therefore much faster This is therefore much faster Estimating motion for small regions can be unreliable Estimating motion for small regions can be unreliable Not as easy as it sounds though….. Not as easy as it sounds though…..

27
Motion Models Trying to determine the exact optical flow at every point in the frame would be ridiculously slow Trying to determine the exact optical flow at every point in the frame would be ridiculously slow Therefore we try to fit a parametric model to the motion Therefore we try to fit a parametric model to the motion

28
Affine Motion Model The affine model describes the vector at each point in the image The affine model describes the vector at each point in the image Need to find values for the parameters that best fit the motion present Need to find values for the parameters that best fit the motion present

29
Minimisation of Error Function If we are to find the optimum parameters we need an error function to minimise: If we are to find the optimum parameters we need an error function to minimise: But this is not in a form that is easy to minimise… But this is not in a form that is easy to minimise…

30
Gradient-based Formulation Applying Taylor expansion to the error function: Applying Taylor expansion to the error function: Much easier to work with Much easier to work with

31
Gradient-descent Minimisation If we know how the error changes with respect to the parameters, we can home in on the minimum error If we know how the error changes with respect to the parameters, we can home in on the minimum error Various methods built on this principle: Various methods built on this principle:

32

33
Robust Estimation What about points that do not belong to the motion we are estimating? What about points that do not belong to the motion we are estimating? These will pull the solution away from the true one These will pull the solution away from the true one

34
Robust Estimators Robust estimators decrease the effect of outliers on estimation Robust estimators decrease the effect of outliers on estimation

35

36
Aside – Influence Function It can be seen that the first derivative of the robust estimator is used in the minimisation: It can be seen that the first derivative of the robust estimator is used in the minimisation:

37
Pyramid Approach Trying to estimate the parameters form scratch at full scale can be wasteful Trying to estimate the parameters form scratch at full scale can be wasteful Therefore a ‘pyramid of resolutions’ or ‘Gaussian pyramid’ is used Therefore a ‘pyramid of resolutions’ or ‘Gaussian pyramid’ is used The principle is to estimate the parameters on a smaller scale and refine until full scale is reached The principle is to estimate the parameters on a smaller scale and refine until full scale is reached

38
Pyramid of Resolutions Each level in the pyramid is half the scale of the one below – i.e. a quarter of the area Each level in the pyramid is half the scale of the one below – i.e. a quarter of the area

40
Problems with this approach Resampling the background model: Resampling the background model: Model cannot be too complex Model cannot be too complex Resampling will bring in errors Resampling will bring in errors Motion model is only an estimate of what is really happening Motion model is only an estimate of what is really happening Can lead to false object detection – particularly close to boundaries Can lead to false object detection – particularly close to boundaries

41
Background Model Design The background model needs to be robust to these problems The background model needs to be robust to these problems We need some way to differentiate between genuine object detections and false ones from motion model and background model errors We need some way to differentiate between genuine object detections and false ones from motion model and background model errors

42
My Approach Rather than updating model values with current, matched values replace them Rather than updating model values with current, matched values replace them In this way resampling errors are not allowed to accumulate In this way resampling errors are not allowed to accumulate

43
