Statistical background subtraction has proved to be a robust and effective approach for segmenting and extracting objects without any prior information of the foreground objects. This paper presents two contributions on this topic. The first contribution of this paper proposes a novel approach which introduces the motion mask into the Gaussian Mixture Models to reduce the errors of classical GMMs, which always classifies the moving objects as background incorrectly, and affects the accuracy of the steps followed by, when the objects are still in long periods. The second contribution regards the connected component labeling based on the contour tracking algorithm. Experimental results validate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
