Abstract: Identifying moving objects is a critical task for many computer vision applications. Background subtraction approach is used to separate the moving objects from the background. Many different methods have been proposed over the recent years. This paper provides implementation of five background subtraction techniques these are , Frame differencing, Mean, Median, Single Gaussian distribution and codebook. Implemented techniques are compared based on different parameters e.g. TP rate FP rate Precision and computation time, Such a comparison can effectively guide the designer to select the most suitable technique for a given application in a principled way.
