Adaptive Model for Object Detection in Noisy and Fast-Varying Environment
This paper presents a specific algorithm for foreground object extraction in complex scenes where the background varies unpredictably over time. The background and foreground models are first constructed by using an adaptive mixture of Gaussians in a joint spatio-color feature space. A dynamic decision framework, which is able to take advantages of the spatial coherency of object, is then introduced for classifying background/foreground pixels. The proposed method was tested on a dataset coming from a real surveillance system including different sensors installed on board a moving train. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm is robust in the real complex scenarios.
