Daubechies Versus Biorthogonal Wavelets for Moving Object Detection in Traffic Monitoring Systems
Salem, Mohammed A.
Moving object detection is a fundamental task for a variety of traffic applications. In this paper the Daubechies and biorthogonal wavelet families are exploited for extracting the relevant movement information in moving image sequences in a 3D wavelet-based segmentation algorithm. The proposed algorithm is applied for traffic monitoring systems. The objective and subjective experimental results obtained by applying both wavelet types are compared and interpreted in terms of the different wavelet properties and the characteristics of the image sequences. The comparisons show the superior performance of the symmetric biorthogonal wavelets in the presence of noisy images and changing lighting conditions when compared to the application of high order Daubechies wavelets. The algorithm is evaluated using simulated images in the Matlab environment.
