SEARCHING AND FITTING STRATEGIES IN ACTIVE SHAPE MODELS

Abstract

The Active Shape Model (ASM) is an ever-increasingly important method for object modelling, shape recognition, and image localization. However, when the target is not clarity, or the initial model placed very far from the target, ASM may have problem to locate on an acceptable result. In this paper, a new strategy is proposed on the ASM searching and fitting procedure, which forms an active searching method. Using this new strategy, the influence of the clarity of the target and initial position of the model is reduced and the result of the fitting is more accuracy. Experiments and results show that the new strategy are effective for improving the performance of the image fitting.
