Abstract

Salient object detection has recently drawn much attention in computer vision such as image compression and object tracking. Currently, various heuristic computational models have been designed. However, extracting the salient objects with a complex background in the image is still a challenging problem. In this paper, we propose a region merging strategy to extract salient region. Firstly, boundary super-pixels are clustered to generate the initial saliency maps based on the prior knowledge that the image boundaries are mostly background. Next, adjacent regions are merged by sorting the multiple feature values of each region. Finally, we get the final saliency maps by merging adjacent or non-adjacent regions by means of the distance from the region to the image center and the boundary length of overlapping regions. The experiments demonstrate that our method performs favorably on three datasets than state-of-art.
