Reliable background suppression for complex scenes

Abstract: This paper describes a system for motion detection based on background suppression,specifically conceived for working in complex scenes with vacillating background,camouflage, illumination changing, etc.. The system contains proper techniques for background bootstrapping, shadow removal, ghost suppression and selective updating of the background model. The results on the challenging videos provided in VSSN '06 Open Source Algorithm Competition dataset demonstrate that the proposed system outperforms the widely-used mixture-of-Gaussians approach.
