Background subtraction is a commonly used class of techniques for segmenting out objects of interest in a scene for applications such as surveillance. This paper surveys a representative sample of the published techniques for background subtraction, and analyses them with respect to three important attributes: foreground detection; background maintenance ;and postprocessing. Background subtraction is particularly a commonly used technique for motion segmentation in static scenes. It attempts to detect moving regions by subtracting the current image pixel-by-pixel from a reference background image that is created by averaging images over time in an initialized period This paper surveys many techniques and compares them.
