Feature Disentanglement Learning With Switching and Aggregation for Video-Based Person Re-Identification
In video person re-identification (Re-ID), the network must consistently extract features of the target person from successive frames. Existing methods tend to focus only on how to use temporal information, which often leads to networks being fooled by similar appearances and same backgrounds. In this paper, we propose a Disentanglement and Switching and Aggregation Network (DSANet), which segregates the features representing identity and features based on camera characteristics, and pays more attention to ID information. We also introduce an auxiliary task that utilizes a new pair of features created through switching and aggregation to increase the network's capability for various camera scenarios. Furthermore, we devise a Target Localization Module (TLM) that extracts robust features against a change in the position of the target according to the frame flow and a Frame Weight Generation (FWG) that reflects temporal information in the final representation. Various loss functions for disentanglement learning are designed so that each component of the network can cooperate while satisfactorily performing its own role. Quantitative and qualitative results from extensive experiments demonstrate the superiority of DSANet over state-of-the-art methods on three benchmark datasets.
