dc.description.abstractWe propose an edge-based method for 6DOF pose tracking of rigid objects using a monocular RGB camera. One of the critical problem for edge-based methods is to search the object contour points in the image corresponding to the known 3D model points. However, previous methods often produce false object contour points in case of cluttered backgrounds and partial occlusions. In this paper, we propose a novel edge-based 3D objects tracking method to tackle this problem. To search the object contour points, foreground and background clutter points are first filtered out using edge color cue, then object contour points are searched by maximizing their edge confidence which combines edge color and distance cues. Furthermore, the edge confidence is integrated into the edge-based energy function to reduce the influence of false contour points caused by cluttered backgrounds and partial occlusions. We also extend our method to multi-object tracking which can handle mutual occlusions. We compare our method with the recent state-of-art methods on challenging public datasets. Experiments demonstrate that our method improves robustness and accuracy against cluttered backgrounds and partial occlusions.en_US
