Threshold adaptation and XOR accumulation algorithm for objects detection

Hasan Thabit Rashid Kurmasha, Israa Hadi Ali


Object detection, tracking and video analysis are vital and energetic tasks for intelligent video surveillance systems and computer vision applications. Object detection based on background modelling is a major technique used in dynamically objects extraction over video streams. This paper presents the threshold adaptation and XOR accumulation (TAXA) algorithm in three systematic stages throughout video sequences. First, the continuous calculation, updating and elimination of noisy background details with hybrid statistical techniques. Second, thresholds are calculated with an effective mean and gaussian for the detection of the pixels of the objects. The third is a novel step in making decisions by using XOR-accumulation to extract pixels of the objects from the thresholds accurately. Each stage was presented with practical representations and theoretical explanations. On high resolution video which has difficult scenes and lighting conditions, the proposed algorithm was used and tested. As a result, with a precision average of 0.90% memory uses of 6.56% and the use of CPU 20% as well as time performance, the result excellent overall superior to all the major used foreground object extraction algorithms. As a conclusion, in comparison to other popular OpenCV methods the proposed TAXA algorithm has excellent detection ability.
