Cross-domain person re-identification (Re-ID) is a challenging and important task in monitoring safety and procedure compliance of industrial work places. In this article, a novel method is proposed to reduce background induced domain shift for adaptive person Re-ID. Specifically, a foreground-background joint clustering module is proposed to extract discriminative foreground and background features and an attention-based feature disentanglement module is designed to reduce the interference of background with the extraction of discriminative foreground features. Experimental results on three widely used person Re-ID benchmarking datasets (Market-1501, DukeMTMC-reID, and MSMT17) have demonstrated that the proposed method achieves promising performance compared with the state-of-the-art methods.
