The boundaries of the image data or of other features available only as thin structures, and the sound of high -level corruption in object parsing from point clouds is challenging tasks . This kind of data handling, flexible shape models that can accurately follow the desired object boundaries. Recently, computational approaches such as recursive compositional models in order to guarantee the active form of the model simplifications and active appearance models for popular models, this process reduced the necessary flexibility.

|Image processing systems are becoming popular due to easy availability of powerful personnel computers, large size memory devices, graphics software’s etc. Image processing usually refers to digital image processing, but optical and analog image processing also are possible. Image processing is used in various applications such as: Remote Sensing, Medical Imaging Forensic Studies, Military and Document Processing Image segmentation would be useful and interesting focus in image processing applications. Segmentation is a process of partitioning an input image into its constituent parts or objects. Images are considered as one of the most important medium of conveying information, in the field of computer vision, by understanding images the information extracted from them can be used for other tasks for example: detection of cancerous cells, identification of an airport from remote sensing data. Thus image segmentation is the first step in image analysis. Computers have no means of intelligently recognizing objects, and so many different Methods have been developed in order to segment image. In segmentation process in based on various features found in the image.|
|Most of existing work focuses in image segmentation different shapes on extracted the images in cluttered background. It is difficult task, so we need to generalize object detection method. Different shape model and algorithm such as Active shape model  can also be learned in a semi-supervised way, needs the training objects to be roughly aligned and to occupy most of the image surface. A limitation common to these approaches is the lack of modeling of intra-class shape deformations. Other object detection mechanism focus on appearance based feature representation skeleton approach for  detecting non-rigid objects. We utilize the skeleton representation to capture non-rigid deformation of an object; skeleton instances are managed by a tree-union structure, associated with a few partbased templates, modeling the contour information.|
|Two dimensional object representation of object that captures shape information at levels. Description  of an object boundaries are compared with global shape information and local shape information of properties. In more recent work a pruned version of dynamic programming is used to efficiently detect objects at an initial stage and then refine them in a top-down manner. The behavior of this method is hard to predict. In recent works for object detection and earlier ones on grouping based on contour-based object representation. Argue that as contours cover a larger portion of the object than interest points, they can be more easily used in conjunction with other tasks, like tracking or segmentation. In the existing model are generated from discriminative models such as AdaBoost/Ransac in a bottom up  manner and are then validated by object/scene models a single generative model to both suggest object locations during coarse-level search and to validate the detection results at a finer level, in the framework of an integrated optimization algorithm.|
|In Bayesian framework based on Markov Random Fields (MRF) generally, the MRF model is learned independently of the inference algorithm that is used to obtain the final result. In observed considerable gains in speed and accuracy by training the MRF model together with a fast and sub optimal inference algorithm for real time denoising.|
|Markov random field for knowledge based segmentation novel representation to model shape variations as well as an efficient inference procedure to fit the model to new data. The considered shape model is similarity-invariant and refers to an incomplete graph that consists of intra and inter cluster connections representing the inter-dependencies of control points. The clusters are determined according to the codependencies of the deformations of the control points within the training set. The connections between the components of a cluster represent the local structure while the connections between the clusters account for the global structure. The distributions of the normalized distances between the connected control points encode the prior model.|
|During search, this model is used together with a discrete markov random field (MRF)  based segmentation, where the unknown variables are the positions of the control points in the image domain. In combining local global image shape model locating deformable objects using a combination of global and local shape properties .|
|a. Hierarchical Generated Model|
|Hierarchical generative model that represents the object shape as an MRF based deformation from a PCA backbone, obtaining a more accurate boundary description. The shape model can be sampled if desired and used for numerical integration. The generative model also contains a data term that connects the image information with the shape model. Due to the high accuracy of the shape description, this model can be used for object parsing from point clouds (from edge detection), where the data information is one pixel wide. The problem we address in this work is to parse an object in a scene. By parsing we mean detecting an object by composing all of its structures using a sparse representation of the image. This is a most challenging task as the object structures can deform; some may be missing, which combined with a cluttered background providing numerous tokens leads to a combinatorial explosion. However, by accurately parsing an object we can not only localize it, but also track it or segment it, without solving each problem from scratch For this we use an hierarchical object representation, which gradually decomposes an elaborate object model into simpler image structures. Segmenting humans poses a particularly good test bed for object specific segmentation since human figures are highly articulated and vary widely in appearance due to clothing.|
|b. Inference Generation|
|Finding the object parsing C and the PCA parameters (A ) is a nontrivial optimization problem. The hidden variables are connected through an MRF, as illustrated in The PCA points (green) form a large fully connected clique in the MRF energy, and each contour point is connected to a PCA point and with its neighbors through pairwise cliques. The node labels represent the positions of the corresponding points in the image. There exist recent advances in optimization for MRF energies with higher order cliques, such as extending graph cuts based on dual decomposition. However, one could not even exhaust all possible combinations of labels on the nodes of the large clique because it is computationally unfeasible even when the nodes have binary labels. For example, the large clique has 96 nodes for the horse parsing task. Candidate Generation From Contour Fragments|
|Usually images contain more than one contour fragment of the object to be segmented. We can refine a candidate obtained by CG1 by fitting it simultaneously to the contour fragment it was obtained from and to another fragment close to the shape. The details of this strategy are right shows the closest candidate to the ground truth among Ncand 400 candidates obtained .also we show that CG2 can improve the quality of the candidates and of the final result.|
|Preprocessing begins with tracing the input points into point chains based on the 8-neighborhood. The point chains are then sub sampled every 5-6 pixels to reduce the number of contour fragments obtained.|
|The contour fragments used by the candidate generators are represented as polynomials of degree three relative to a system of coordinates aligned with the contour’s endpoints, as illustrated. The contour fragment endpoints are two of the sub sampled points of the same traced point chain and the polynomial is fitted in a leastsquare sense through all the chain points in between. The fragments are restricted in length to a range. Only the fragments with a maximum error at most 1:5 pixels are kept. The contour fragments obtained this way have a partial order inherited from the partial order between the sets of chain points they were constructed.|
|Object parsing and applies it to data coming from structured noisy point clouds such as edge detection images. The object shape is modeled as an MRF deformation of a hidden PCA model.|
|The model energy is minimized through many local searches starting from a number of data-driven initializations. Based on the experimental evaluation, conclude that the proposed model is quite accurate, and even though the inference algorithm is suboptimal, our method is competitive with modern approaches for object parsing from point clouds such as the recursive compositional models and ASMs. The candidate generators and the object parsing algorithm can be easily parallelized, expecting a 10-100 times speedup from a GPU implementation. Develop a principled and efficient inference method for hierarchical object representations.|
|Results demonstrate the practical applicability of our approach in real images containing substantial clutter, where a tenfold improvement in performance is attained.|
