Advanced Background Subtraction in Traffic Monitoring System.
Background subtraction has been a fundamental task in video analytics and smart surveillance applications. In the field of background subtraction, Gaussian mixture model is a canonical model for many other methods. However, the unconscious learning of this model often leads to erroneous motion detection under high variation scenes. This project proposes a new method that incorporates entropy estimation and a removal framework into the Gaussian mixture model to improve the performance of background subtraction. Firstly, entropy information is computed for each pixel of a frame to classify frames into silent or high variation categories. Secondly, the removal framework is used to determine which frames from the background subtraction process are updated. This project produces precise results with fast execution time, which are two critical factors in surveillance systems for more advanced tasks.
