Moment-Based Methods of Identification and Localization of Partially Visible Objects

  • A. Śluzek
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 307)


The paper contains the brief description of identification of partially occluded 2-D objects and 3-D objects represented by their silhouettes (which also can be occluded). The algorithms are based on moment expressions. For occluded objects the moments of contours are applied instead of the moments of regions.
