The Gaussian mixture model (GMM) is an important metric for moving objects segmentation and is fit to deal with the gradual changes of illumination and the repetitive motions of scene elements. However, the performance of the GMM may be plagued by the complex motion of the dynamic background such as waving trees and flags fluttering. A spatiotemporal Gaussian mixture model (STGMM) is proposed to handle the complex motion of the background by considering every background pixel to be fluctuating both in intensity and in its neighboring region. A new matching rule is defined to incorporate the spatial information. Experimental results on typical scenes show that STGMM can segment the moving objects correctly in complex scenes. Quantitative evaluations demonstrate that the proposed STGMM performs better than GMM.
