Abstract
This paper proposes a new approach for tracking the contour of moving object for head-shoulder video sequence using initial shape model. First, we can utilize manual process or some segmentation approach to obtain the initial shape model. Then, we detect the changing ratio of intensity outside the bounding box in background area. And, the OR operation is employed to obtain a combined shape which is composed of initial shape model and mesh-based temporal segmentation result by motion activity. Finally, we propose a new iterative pixel-based erosion algorithm for obtaining exact object shape using local gradient along the boundary of combined shape in a counting window.
