Person re-identification (reID) plays an important role in computer vision. However, existing methods suffer from performance degradation in occluded scenes. In this work, we propose an occlusion-robust block, Region Feature Completion (RFC), for occluded reID. Different from most previous works that discard the occluded regions, RFC block can recover the semantics of occluded regions in feature space. Firstly, a Spatial RFC (SRFC) module is developed. SRFC exploits the long-range spatial contexts from non-occluded regions to predict the features of occluded regions. Secondly, we introduce Temporal RFC (TRFC) module which captures the long-term temporal contexts to refine the prediction of SRFC. RFC block is lightweight, end-to-end trainable and can be
easily plugged into existing CNNs to form RFCnet. The framework of RFCnet is below.
In summary, the main contributions of our work lie in four aspects: (1) proposing to use feature completion to address the occluded person reID problem; (2) designing a SRFC and TRFC module that respectively captures spatial and temporal contexts to recover the features of occluded regions; (3) constructing a large-scale video occluded reID dataset Occluded-DukeMTMCVideoReID to facilitate the research on occluded reID; (4) achieving superior performance on both occluded and holistic reID compared with state-of-the-art methods.
