Systems may integrate shape information by only considering this restricted set of contours. 3). Given a point →x on the image plane, the Voronoi Center is the point on the contour C that is closest to →x of minimum arc length value; the Voronoi Projection is the line segment from →x to its Voronoi Center and its length is the Voronoi Distance. 1 (DISTINCTNESS OF MINIMAL DISTANCE PROJECTIONS → → Given a contour C C and two different points in ℜ2, a and b, if the two points do not have the same minimally distant points on C, y→ and → z, respectively, then AY and BZ do not intersect.

To find the correct model for the given content. Existing Techniques of Visual Processing 43 CLASSIFICATION When using a priori knowledge of an object for representation or extraction, we require classification technologies. If we choose the correct object representation, then a priori knowledge from an object representation can assemble partial information derived from the video sequence with better noise rejection and tolerance to missing visual information. If the object class is not known, incorrect application of a representation actually degrades analysis by disallowing otherwise valid video object features or analysis.
