Abstract : Background subtraction is a prerequisite and often the very first step employed in several high-level and real-time computer vision applications. Several parametric and non-parametric change detection algorithms employing multiple feature spaces have been proposed to date but none has proven to be robust against all challenges that can possibly be posed in a complex real-time environment. Amongst the varied challenges posed, illumination variations, shadows, dynamic backgrounds, camouflaged and bootstrapping artifacts are some of the well-known problems. This paper presents a light-weight hybrid change detection algorithm that integrates a novel combination of RGB color space and conditional YCbCr-based XCS-LBP texture descriptors (YXCS-LBP) into a modified pixel-based background model. The conditional employment of light-weight YXCS-LBP texture features with the modified Visual background extractor (ViBe) aiming at reduction in false positives, produces outperforming results without incurring much memory and computational cost. The random and time-subsampled update strategy employed with the proposed classification procedure ensures the efficient suppression of shadows and bootstrapping artifacts along with the complete retention of long-term static objects in the foreground masks. Comprehensive performance analysis of the proposed technique on publicly available Change Detection dataset (2014 CDnet dataset) demonstrates the superiority of the proposed technique over different state-of-the-art-methods against varied challenges.
