Abstract or Description

This paper describes a segmentation method for extracting salient regions in outdoor scenes using both 3-D laser scans and imagery information. Our approach is a bottom- up attentive process without any high-level priors, models, or learning. As a mid-level vision task, it is not only robust against noise and outliers but it also provides valuable information for other high-level tasks in the form of optimal segments and their ranked saliency. In this paper, we propose a new saliency definition for 3-D point clouds and we incorporate it with saliency features from color information.
