ViBE: A powerful random technique to estimate the background in video sequences
Background subtraction is a crucial step in many automatic video content analysis applications. While numerous acceptable techniques have been proposed so far for background extraction, there is still a need to produce more efficient algorithms in terms of adaptability to multiple environments, noise resilience, and computation efficiency. In this paper, we present a powerful method for background extraction that improves in accuracy and reduces the computational load. The main innovation concerns the use of a random policy to select values to build a samples-based estimation of the background. To our knowledge, it is the first time that a random aggregation is used in the field of background extraction. In addition we propose a novel policy that propagates information between neighboring pixels of an image. Experiment detailed in this paper show how our method improves on other widely used techniques, and how it outperforms these techniques for noisy images.
