This paper presents a stationary background estimation algorithm for color image sequences. The algorithm employs the running mode and running average algorithms, which are two commonly used algorithms, as the estimation core. A scoreboard is used to keep the pixel variations in the image sequence and is used to select between the running mode or the running average algorithm in each estimation. Our evaluation results show that by selecting, intelligently, the estimation core between the two algorithms according to the scoreboard values, the proposed background estimation algorithm has excellent performance in terms of estimation accuracy and speed
