Paper Abstract

A method of real-time object detection for video surveillance systems has been developed. The method aims to realize robust object detection by using Radial Reach Correlation (RRC). We also apply a statistical background estimation to cope with dynamic and complex environments. The computational cost of RRC is higher than the simple subtraction method and the background estimation method based on statistical approach needs large memory. It is necessary to reduce the calculation cost in order to apply to an embedded image processing device. Our method is composed of two techniques: fast RRC algorithm and background estimation based on statistical approach with cumulative averaging process. As a result, without deterioration in detection accuracy, the processing time of object detection can be decreased to about 1/4 in comparison with normal RRC.
