Abstract—In this paper, a new methodology for moving cast shadow detection for visual surveillance applications, efficient localization, shadow suppression, extraction of only moving foreground objects has been presented. For moving foreground object detection and segmentation, adaptive Background subtraction algorithm is presented and then using pixel based shadow detection method potential shadow pixels using the photometric characteristics of pixels has been explained. Then by employing block based shadow detection using textural characteristics hasbeen presented, because shadow region exhibits the same textual characteristics as that of background model. Final result of shadow detection and suppression is further enhanced by employing post processing operations. This paper presented an efficient algorithm for shadow detection in such a way that, it should be unaffected by environment type, complex background, or illumination variation. Experimentation has been carried out to validate the algorithm’s performance on standard metrics for both indoor and outdoor video sequences and same is reported in this paper

Index Terms—Background subtraction , cast shadow, n-connectivity, texture, chromaticity.
