On-Line Color Calibration in Non-stationary Environments
In this paper we propose an approach to color classification and image segmentation in non-stationary environments. Our goal is to cope with changing illumination condition by on-line adapting both the parametric color model and its structure/complexity. Other authors used parametric statistics to model color distribution in segmentation and tracking problems, but with a fixed complexity model. Our approach is able to on-line adapt also the complexity of the model, to cope with large variations in the scene illumination and color temperature.
