Leaf Segmentation using the Kinect
2011 (English)In: Proceedings of SSBA 2011 Symposium on Image Analysis, 2011Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Segmentation is an important preprocessing step in many applications. Purely colour-based segmentation is often problematic. For this reason, we here investigate fusion of depth and colour information, to facilitate robust segmentation of single images. We evaluate segmentation results on data collected using the Microsoft Kinect peripheral for Xbox 360, using superparamagnetic clustering. We also propose a method for aligning and encoding colour and depth information from the Kinect device. As we show in the paper, the fusion of depth and colour information produces more semantically relevant segments for scene analysis than either depth or colour separately.
