In the field of pedestrian re-identification (ReID), the challenge of matching occluded pedestrian images with holistic images across different camera views is significant. Traditional approaches have predominantly addressed non-pedestrian occlusions, neglecting other prevalent forms such as motion blur resulting from rapid pedestrian movement or camera focus discrepancies. This study introduces the MotionBlur module, a novel data augmentation strategy designed to enhance model performance under these specific conditions. Appropriate regions are selected on the original image for the application of convolutional blurring operations, which are characterized by predetermined lengths and frequencies of displacement. This method effectively simulates the common occurrence of motion blur observed in real-world scenarios. Moreover, the incorporation of multiple directional blurring accounts for a variety of potential situations within the dataset, thereby increasing the robustness of the data augmentation. Experimental evaluations conducted on datasets containing both occluded and holistic pedestrian images have demonstrated that models augmented with the MotionBlur module surpass existing methods in overall performance.
