Making Background Subtraction Robust to Sudden Illumination Changes

Modern background subtraction techniques can handle gradual illumination changes but can easily be confused by rapid ones. We propose a technique that overcomes this limitation by relying on a statistical model, not of the pixel intensities, but of the illumination effects. Because they tend to affect whole areas of the image as opposed to individual pixels, low-dimensional models are appropriate for this purpose and make our method extremely robust to illumination changes, whether slow or fast.
