Abstract

Aiming at the difficulty of obtaining the initial background, the inaccuracy of real-time background update and the difficulty of controlling the update speed in moving vehicle detection of traffic video, this paper proposes an accurate and effective moving vehicle detection method which can be used in complex traffic environment. This method first constructs initial background image according to the real-time situation of traffic environment, then segmentalizes the current frame into foreground region and background region accurately using the combined method of inter-frame difference and background subtractions, then do the real-time update on background with a adaptive background update speed which is selected according to the background disturbance and illumination changes of road, lastly obtain the moving object and remove the shadow of moving object with the background subtraction method. Experimental results show that this method can detect moving vehicles fast and accurately in complex traffic situation.
