A new approach has been developed for computer perception of scenes. The approach is based on the integration of information extracted from thermal images and visual images, which provides new information not available by processing either image alone. The thermal behavior of scene objects has been studied in terms of surface heat fluxes. The thermal image is used to measure surface temperature and the visual image provides surface absorptivity and relative orientation. These parameters used together provide estimates of surface heat fluxes. Features based on these estimates are shown to be more meaningful and specific in distinguishing scene components.
