Experiential Sampling based Foreground/Background Segmentation for Video Surveillance
Segmentation of foreground and background has been an important research problem arising out of many applications including video surveillance. A method commonly used for segmentation is “background subtraction” or thresholding the difference between the estimated background image and current image. Adaptive Gaussian mixture based background modelling has been proposed by many researchers for increasing the robustness against environmental changes. However, all these methods, being computationally intensive, need to be optimized for efficient and real-time performance especially at a higher image resolution. In this paper, we propose an improved foreground/background segmentation method which uses Experiential Sampling technique to restrict the computational efforts in the region of interest. We exploit the fact that the region of interest in general is present only in a small part of the image, therefore, the attention should only be focused in those regions. The proposed method...
