In this paper, we present an algorithm for occlusion boundary detection. The main contribution is a probabilistic detection framework defined on spatio-temporal lattices, which enables joint analysis of image frames. For this purpose, we introduce two complementary cost functions for creating the spatio-temporal lattice and for performing global inference of the occlusion boundaries, respectively. In addition, a novel combination of low-level occlusion features is discriminatively learnt in the detection framework. Simulations on the CMU Motion Dataset provide ample evidence that proposed algorithm outperforms the leading existing methods.
