This paper presented a novel depth map generation method - the short-term motion assisted color segmentation, which combines the pictorial, monocular and binocular depth cues of human vision. The proposed method utilizes a motion/edge registration technique to avoid the motion jitter error in common motion segmentation. And the motion/image segment adaptation algorithm matches the connected components with the motion segments. Even for static scene, the connected component algorithm is still working for the depth map generation. The experimental results show that the adaptation of motion and image segmentation improves quality and smoothness of the depth map both in the spatial and temporal domain.
