Abstract

Person re-identification has increasingly become an interesting task in the computer vision field, especially after the well known terroristic attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001. Even if video surveillance systems exist since the early 1950s, the third generation of such systems is a relatively modern topic and refers to systems formed by multiple fixed or mobile cameras - geographically referenced or not - whose information have to be handled and processed by an intelligent system. In the last decade, researchers are focusing their attention on the person re-identification task because computers (and so video surveillance systems) can handle a huge amount of data reducing the time complexity of the algorithms. Moreover, some well known image processing techniques - i.e. background subtraction - can be embedded directly on cameras, giving modularity and flexibility to the whole system. The aim of this work is to present an appearance-based method for person re-identification that models the chromatic relationship between both different frames and different areas of the same frame. This approach has been tested against two public benchmark datasets (ViPER and ETHZ) and the experiments demonstrate that the person re-identification processing by means of intra frame relationships is robust and shows great results in terms of recognition percentage.
