This paper presents the use of Time-of-Flight (ToF) cameras in smart-rooms and how this leads to improved results in segmenting the people in the room from the background and consequently better 3D reconstruction of foreground objects. A calibrated rig consisting of one Swissranger SR3100 Time-of-Flight range camera and a high resolution standard CCD camera is set in a smart-room containing five other standard cameras. A probabilistic background model is used to segment each view and a shape from silhouette volume is reconstructed. It is shown that the presence of the range camera gives ways of eliminating regional artifacts and therefore creating a more robust input for higher level applications such as people tracking or human motion analysis.
