A GRAPH-BASED SIGNATURE GENERATION FOR PEOPLE RE-IDENTIFICATION IN A MULTI-CAMERA SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM

T. D'Orazio, C. Guaragnella

Abstract

In this paper we investigate the problem of people re-identification in case of non overlapping and non calibrated cameras. We propose a novel method for signature generation that considers both color and spatial features along a video sequence and a distance measure to estimate the similarity between silhouettes. A graph based representation has been introduced to model different people, in which uniform regions represent nodes and contiguities among regions represent edges. Comparisons with a standard approach based on histogram similarity have been provided to evaluate the proposed methodology.
