Moving Object Detection Sequences

This page has been created in order to show and make available some manually labelled image sequences used for testing of the Self-Organizing Background Subtraction (SOBS) algorithm presented in [1].

Sequence: MSA

Sequence MSA is a home-made indoor sequence manually labeled, consisting of 528 frames of 320*240 spatial resolution, acquired at a frequency of 30 fps. The scene consists of a university hall, where a man comes in, leaves a bag on the floor, and then comes out. It represents an example of easy sequence, in that lighting conditions are quite stable and moving objects are well contrasted with the background (there is no camouflage); however, strong shadows cast by moving objects can be observed in the entire sequence.

Download the sequence here (27.2MB rar file containing 528 PPM images).

Download the Ground Truth here (txt file containing, for each sequence frame, number of moving objects and their bounding box coordinates).
