A method for moving object recognition and tracking in the intelligent traffic monitoring system is presented. For the shortcomings and deficiencies of the frame-subtraction method, a redundant discrete wavelet transform (RDWT) based moving object recognition algorithm is put forward, which directly detects moving objects in the redundant discrete wavelet transform domain. An improved adaptive mean-shift algorithm is used to track the moving object in the follow up frames. Experimental results show that the algorithm can effectively extract the moving object, even though the object is similar to the background, and the results are better than the traditional frame-subtraction method. The object tracking is accurate without the impact of changes in the size of the object. Therefore the algorithm has a certain practical value and prospect.
