Further exploration of deep aggregation for shadow detection

Бесплатный доступ

Shadow detection is a fundamental challenge in the field of computer vision. It requires the network to understand the global semantics and local details of the image. All existing methods depend on the aggregation of the features of a multi-stage pre-trained convolution neural network, but in comparison to high-level capabilities, low-level capabilities provide less detection performance. Using low-level features not only increases the complexity of the network but also reduces its time efficiency. In this article, we propose a new shadow detector that only uses high-level features and explores the complementary information between adjacent feature layers. Experiments show that the technique in this paper can accurately detect shadows and perform well compared with the most advanced methods. The detailed experiments performed on three public shadow detection datasets, SUB, UCF, and ISTD, we demonstrate that the suggested method is efficient for detecting any sort of shadow image, which provides the maximum percentage of accuracy and stability
