Three Dimensional Pose Estimation of an Articulated Object from its Silhouette Image

Yoshinari KAMEDA, Michihiko MINOH, Katsuo IKEDA


We propose a model-matching method to estimate the pose of an articulated object from only one silhouette image. It assumes that the object's shape information and the camera calibration parameters have been given to the system in advance. We first show a contour based method and then apply it to the pose estimation of a real-life object. The method presented here has been tested on several silhouettes, including both computer generated and real-life humans.
