Motion-based Object Segmentation based on Dense RGB-D Scene Flow The Gaussian Filter (GF) is one of the most widely used filtering algorithms; instances are the Extended Kalman Filter, the Unscented Kalman Filter and the Divided Difference Filter. We take advantage of the fact that in robot manipulation scenarios, scenes often consist of a set of rigidly moving objects. We find that long enough training sequences are crucial for DF performance and that modelling heteroscedastic observation noise significantly improves results.
