Example Background Moving Camera

From BoofCV
Jump to: navigation, search

In this example the objects which are moving relative to the background are highlighted in a binary image. While much slower than background modeling for static cameras, it can handle gradual camera motion when viewing environments that are approximately planar or being viewed for a distance. If the same videos were feed into a static camera background motion the entire image would be lit up as moving.

Example Code

 * Example showing how to perform background modeling with a moving camera.  Here the camera's motion is explicitly
 * estimated using a motion model.  That motion model is then used to distort the image and generate background.
 * The net affect is a significant reduction in false positives around the objects of images in oscillating cameras
 * and the ability to detect motion in moving scenes.
