Shadow detection is critical for robust and reliable vision-based systems for traffic flow analysis. In this paper we discuss various shadow detection approaches and compare two critically. The goal of these algorithms is to prevent moving shadows being misclassified as moving objects (or parts of them), thus avoiding the merging of two or more objects into one and improving the accuracy of object localization. The environment considered is an outdoor highway scene with multiple lanes observed… CONTINUE READING
