Advanced self-contained object removal for realizing real-time Diminished Reality in unconstrained environments

Jan Herling, Wolfgang Broll
2010 2010 IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality  
While Augmented Reality has always been restricted to adding artificial content to the real environment, Diminished Reality allows for removing real world content.  ...  In this paper we present our approach for removing real-world objects from a live video stream of the user's real environment.  ...  In this paper we will present our approach to self-contained real-time object removal from live video streams providing the basis for unconstrained Diminished Reality in arbitrary and dynamic environments  ...
