Reliable smoke detection system in the domains of image energy and color

Abstract: Smoke detection calls for a reliable and fast distinction between background, moving objects and variable shapes that are recognizable as smoke. In our system we propose a stable background suppression module joined with a smoke detection module working on segmented objects. It exploits two features: the energy variation in wavelet model and a color model of the smoke. The decrease of energy ratio in wavelet domain between background and current image is a clue to detect smoke representing the variations of texture level. A mixture of Gaussians models this texture ratio for temporal evolution. The color model is used as reference to measure the deviation of the current pixel color from the model. The two features have been combined using a Bayesian classifier to detect smoke in the scene. Experiments on real data and a comparison between our background model and Gaussian Mixture(MOG) model for smoke detection are presented. © 2008 IEEE.
