  title={Fuzzy Running Average and Fuzzy Background Subtraction: Concepts and Application},
  author={Mohamad Hoseyn Sigari and Naser Mozayani and Hamid Reza Pourreza},
Summary Running average method and its modified version are two simple and fast methods for background modeling. In this paper, some weaknesses of running average method and standard background subtraction are mentioned. Then, a fuzzy approach for background modeling and background subtraction is proposed. For fuzzy background modeling, fuzzy running average is suggested. Background modeling and background subtraction algorithms are very commonly used in vehicle detection systems. To… Expand
