Background subtraction is often used as the first step in video analysis and smart surveillance applications. However, the issue of inconsistent performance across different scenarios due to a lack of flexibility remains a serious concern. To address this, we propose a novel non-parametric, pixel-level background modeling approach based on word dictionaries that draws from traditional codebooks and sample consensus approaches. In this new approach, the importance of each background sample (or… CONTINUE READING
