Most of the researches are concentrated on motion detection in gray value image sequences and the methods for motion detection are based on background subtraction or on temporal gray value derivatives. The methods based on background subtraction, including auto-adaptive ones, meet difficulties in presence of illumination changes and of slowly moving objects and need to be re-initialized from time to time. The methods based on temporal derivatives are in general sensible to noise. Color images containing much richer information than the gray value ones, it would be interesting to use them to better detect moving objects. In this paper, we address the problem of motion detection in color image sequences and the problems of illumination changes and shadow elimination. Our motion detection method is based on fuzzy segmentation of the color difference image in help of non-symmetrical π membership functions. The elimination of false moving objects detected due to illumination change is realized by combining the background subtraction method with the temporal derivative method and motion continuity. Shadows are removed by comparing the color of mobile pixels detected in the current frame with that in the precedent frame in HSL color space. Experimental results are reported.
