The accuracy of motion detection in an image by three proposed techniques is explored using synthetic images with varying contrasts and noise levels. The maximum likelihood test consistently results in a higher probability of detection of true motion than either mean or median tests. However, the maximum likelihood test also consistently has a higher probability of false alarms, that is, the detection of stationary objects as moving objects, than either mean or median tests. For applications in which execution efficiency is at least as important as a high probability of detection, the mean or median tests may be used to advantage.
