Abstract

Illumination conditions cause problems for many computer vision algorithms. Shadows in an image may lead to failure of segmentation, tracking, or recognition algorithms. Cast shadows always move with their corresponding objects such that background subtraction cannot separate them accurately. This might lead to object merging, object shape distortion, and object losses. Shadows should be identified and removed in order to provide a correct description of the objects. In this paper, different methods used to detect cast shadows are discussed.
