Abstract
Mass functions estimation is a key issue in evidence theory-based segmentation of multisensor images. In this paper, we generalize the statistical mixture modeling and the Bayesian inference approach in order to quantify the confidence level in the context of Dempster-Shafer theory. We demonstrate that our model assigns confidence levels in a relevant manner. Contextual information is integrated using a Markovian field that is adapted to handle compound hypotheses. The multiple sensors are assumed to be corrupted by different noise models. In this case, we show the interest of using a flexible Dirichlet distribution to model the data. The effectiveness of our method is demonstrated on synthetic and radar and SPOT images.
