Abstract
Background registration technique is useful to solve still object problem and uncovered background problem for video segmentation. However, it is hard to automatically decide the threshold of the frame difference for background registration to make it more feasible for real-time applications. Many previous works made efforts on automatic threshold decision for change detection. In this paper, we propose a new method of automatic threshold decision algorithm in a totally different viewpoint. Not only change detection but also the quantization effect in discrete domain is concerned. A Gaussianity test is first applied to find the standard deviation of Gaussian noise from the camera. Then, the quantization effect in discrete domain is taken into consideration to derive the relation between the standard deviation and the optimal threshold value. A couple MPEG-4 sequences and experimental sequences are tested as examples. Simulation results show that the calculated threshold values are suitable for background registration to give good segmentation results.
