Title: APPARATUS FOR IDENTIFYING OBJECTS FROM AN OBJECT CLASS
Abstract:
The invention relates to an apparatus for identifying a candidate object in image data and determining a likelihood that the candidate object is an object from an object class. The apparatus comprises an image data receiving unit for receiving image data of an object of the object class, a seed element selecting unit for selecting a portion of the image elements as seed elements, a contour point identifying unit for identifying, for each seed element (SE), contour points, the contour points of a seed element circumscribing a candidate object which comprises the seed element, and a seed score determining unit for determining, for each seed element, a seed score indicative of a likelihood that the candidate object is an object from the object class. The invention allows differentiation between an object of an object class of interest and artifacts.
