Probabilistic Multi-Class Scene Flow Segmentation for Traffic Scenes

A multi-class traffic scene segmentation approach based on scene flow data is presented. Opposed to many other approaches using color or texture features, our approach is purely based on dense depth and 3D motion information. Using prior knowledge on tracked objects in the scene and the pixel-wise uncertainties of the scene flow data, each pixel is assigned to either a particular moving object class (tracked/unknown object), the ground surface, or static background. The global topological order of classes, such as objects are above ground, is locally integrated into a conditional random field by an ordering constraint. The proposed method yields very accurate segmentation results on challenging real world scenes, which we made publicly available for comparison.
