Example Background Stationary Camera

From BoofCV

Example of background modeling/motion detection from a stationary camera. Moving objects are detected inside the video based on their difference from a background model. These techniques can run very fast (basic runs over 2,000 fps) and be very effective in tracking algorithms

Example Code

 * Example showing how to perform background modeling when the camera is assumed to be stationary.  This scenario
 * can be computed much faster than the moving camera case and depending on the background model can some times produce
 * reasonable results when the camera has a little bit of jitter.
