Real-Time Adaptive Histogram Min-Max Bucket (HMMB) Model for Background Subtraction
IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology
This paper proposes an efficient real-time background subtraction algorithm, which is essential in many computer vision applications. Initially, histograms of the intensity values for each channel of a pixel position in a set of training framesare constructed. A background model, histogram min-max bucket, is constructed from the minimum and maximum values of contiguous non-zero frequencies of the temporal intensity histogram. A novel feature of this algorithm is the use of a single sliding window to update the system adaptively, capturing the proper background even under sudden and/or gradual illumination changes in the scene. We incorporate both local and global information with the help of the current and the previously visited pixel values for binary classification of a pixel into foreground and background. This algorithm is compared with several state-of-the-art techniques and experimental studies show that the proposed method outperforms all these methods in terms of accurate binary classification.
