Beschreibung Foreground detection is basically the first processing step in the automated analysis of video surveillance data. Although a significant amount of work has been done to address this problem, still we are far away to have a robust performance in a real world application. The main reason is that outdoor camera deployments are particularly problematic, due to the movement of the background scene itself. Some samples of input (top row) and output (bottom row) of an ideal background subtraction algorithm is presented below.



The goal of this project is to apply Mixture of Gaussian in conjunction with Conditional Random Field for background subtraction. We should apply our proposed technique to a multi-view data set, namely PETS 2009, instead of a single image to extract the foreground from background.
