3D Occlusion Inference from Silhouette Cues


We consider the problem of detecting and accounting for the presence of occluders in a 3D scene based on silhouette cues in video streams obtained from multiple, calibrated views. While well studied and robust in controlled environments, silhouette-based reconstruction of dynamic objects fails in general environments where uncontrolled occlusions are commonplace, due to inherent silhouette corruption by occluders. We show that occluders in the interaction space of dynamic objects can be detected and their 3D shape fully recovered as a byproduct of shape-from-silhouette analysis. We provide a Bayesian sensor fusion formulation to process all occlusion cues occurring in a multi-view sequence. Results show that the shape of static occluders can be robustly recovered from pure dynamic object motion, and that this information can be used for online self-correction and consolidation of dynamic object shape reconstruction.
