This paper presents a novel approach for simultaneous silhouette extraction from multi-viewpoint images. The main contribution of this paper is a new algorithm for 1) 3D context aware error detection and correction of 2D multi-viewpoint silhouette extraction and 2) 3D context aware classification of cast shadow regions. Our method takes both monocular image segmentation and background subtraction of each viewpoint as its inputs, but does not assume they are correct. Inaccurate segmentation and
more » ... e segmentation and background subtraction are corrected through our iterative method based on inter-viewpoint checking. Some experiments quantitatively demonstrate advantages against previous approaches.
