This article presents a new method for background subtraction (BGS) and object detection for a real-time video application using a combination of frame differencing and a scale-invariant feature detector. This method takes the benefits of background modelling and the invariant feature detector to improve the accuracy in various environments. The proposed method consists of three main modules, namely, modelling, matching and subtraction modules. The comparison study of the proposed method with a popular Gaussian mixture model proved that the improvement in correct classification can be increased up to 98% with a reduction of false negative and true positive rates. Beside that the proposed method has shown great potential to overcome the drawback of the traditional BGS in handling challenges like shadow effect and lighting fluctuation.
