Efficient background subtraction for thermal images using reflectional symmetry pattern (RSP)

Efficient background subtraction for thermal images using reflectional symmetry pattern (RSP) Nowadays, thermal image processing has gained more attention. Thermal camera’s cost is decreasing, and so many real-time applications use thermal cameras since they have an ability to detect objects in darkness and track objects in the video. A background subtraction approach using Reflectional Symmetry Pattern (RSP) for thermal image background subtraction is proposed based on the assumption that the geometric reflectional symmetrical pattern of each of the objects (person) is much lower than the surrounding background. Reflectional symmetrical texture pattern can be used to create a subspace from the result of frame differencing approach. Statistical parameters such as VP (Vector Product), VD (Vector Direction) can be used to create an accurate background model. As a result, the proposed scheme can provide a high precision and less error rate to meet the requirements of object detection from real-time thermal videos. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Multimedia Tools and Applications Springer Journals

Abstract

Nowadays, thermal image processing has gained more attention. Thermal camera’s cost is decreasing, and so many real-time applications use thermal cameras since they have an ability to detect objects in darkness and track objects in the video. A background subtraction approach using Reflectional Symmetry Pattern (RSP) for thermal image background subtraction is proposed based on the assumption that the geometric reflectional symmetrical pattern of each of the objects (person) is much lower than the surrounding background. Reflectional symmetrical texture pattern can be used to create a subspace from the result of frame differencing approach. Statistical parameters such as VP (Vector Product), VD (Vector Direction) can be used to create an accurate background model. As a result, the proposed scheme can provide a high precision and less error rate to meet the requirements of object detection from real-time thermal videos.
