On the Effectiveness of Color Similarity Measures in Background–Frame Differencing Applications

Abstract

The effectiveness of color similarity measures in background-frame differencing applications is examined in this paper. Twelve published color similarity measures are investigated in RGB sensor space and CIE L*a*b* color space and it is shown that the absolute-value exponential method is most effective. In contrast to other methods, this method uniquely relates brightness differences, saturation differences, and hue differences in the two input colors to similarity values as a one-to-one and monotonous function and the full value ranges of brightness, saturation and hue differences are mapped to the full range of similarity values.
