Method for enhancing ground-based detection of a moving object

A method for enhancing detection of a moving object. The method includes comparing a video image to a historical sequence of images obtained from the same scene or stationary source. The method uses statistical sampling to implement change detection and thresholding operations which extract moving objects from the scene. The method provides for a high degree of sensitivity and noise rejection to motion detection, and is self-adapting to variations in sensor characteristics and operating environments.
