A method for change detection using a combination of view-based and model-based representations is presented. Coarse geometric models are enhanced with appearance-based information using a small number of training images, resulting in a hybrid representation that maps local appearance characteristics onto object subparts to provide model-based appearance prediction. The learning behavior of the change detection system is studied as a function of the number and characteristics of the images in the training set. Results are presented showing the level of improvement of change detection performance as images are added to the training set, in comparison with using a purely geometric approach.
