Description/Abstract

Foreground/background segmentation is an active research area for moving object analysis. We combine two probabilistic approaches one of which estimates foreground/background probabilistic density and the other uses prior knowledge to decompose the colour space. The observed performance advantages are associated with the fusion of operators with completely different basis. Tests on outdoor and indoor sequences confirm the efficacy of this approach. The new algorithms can successfully identify and remove shadows and highlights with improved moving-object segmentation. A particular advantage of our evaluation is that it is the first approach that compares foreground/ background labelling with results obtained from labelling by broadcast techniques.
