In augmented reality displays, X-Ray visualization techniques make hidden objects visible through combining the physical view with an artificial rendering of the hidden information. An important step in X-Ray visualization is to decide which parts of the physical scene should be kept and which should be replaced by overlays. The combination should provide users with essential perceptual cues to understand the relationship of depth between hidden information and the physical scene. In this paper we present an approach that addresses this decision in unknown environments by analyzing camera images of the physical scene and using the extracted information for occlusion management. Pixels are grouped into perceptually coherent image regions and a set of parameters is determined for each region. The parameters change the X-Ray visualization for either preserving existing structures or generating synthetic structures. Finally, users can customize the overall opacity of foreground regions to adapt the visualization.
