Video surveillance is an active research topic in computer vision. In this paper, humans and cars identification technique suitable for real time video surveillance systems is presented. The technique we proposed includes background subtraction, foreground segmentation, shadow removal, feature extraction and classification. The feature extraction of the extracted foreground objects is done via a new set of affine moment invariants based on statistics method and these were used to identify human or car. When the partial occlusion occurs, although features of full body cannot be extracted, our proposed technique extracts the features of head shoulder. Our proposed technique can identify human by extracting the human head-shoulder up to 60%–70% occlusion. Thus, it has a better classification to solve the issue of the loss of property arising from human occluded easily in practical applications. The whole system works at approximately 16−29 fps and thus it is suitable for real-time applications. The accuracy for our proposed technique in identifying human is very good, which is 98.33%, while for cars� identification, the accuracy is also good, which is 94.41%. The overall accuracy for our proposed technique in identifying human and car is at 98.04%. The experiment results show that this method is effective and has strong robustness.
