abstract

Automatic tracking is essential for a 24 hours intruder-detection and, more generally, a surveillance system. This paper presents an adaptive background generation and the corresponding moving region detection techniques for a Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) camera using a geometric transform-based mosaicing method. A complete system including adaptive background generation, moving regions extraction and tracking is evaluated using realistic experimental results. More specifically, experimental results include generated background images, a moving region, and input video with bounding boxes around moving objects. This experiment shows that the proposed system can be used to monitor moving targets in widely open areas by automatic panning and tilting in real-time.
