This letter presents a new method for background subtraction and shadow removal for grayscale video sequences. The background image is modeled using robust statistical descriptors, and a noise estimate is obtained. Foreground pixels are extracted, and a statistical approach combined with geometrical constraints are adopted to detect and remove shadows.
