Traditional background model methods
often require complicated computations, and are
sensitive to illumination and shadow. In this paper, we
propose a block-based background modeling method,
and use our proposed method to combine color and
texture characteristics. Suppression and relaxation are
the two key strategies to resist illumination changes and
shadow disturbance. The proposed method is quite
efficient and is capable of resisting illumination changes.
Experimental results show that our method is suitable
for real-word scenes and real-time applications.
