<p><b>Abstract</b>—Shadows of moving objects often obstruct robust visual tracking. We propose an HMM-based segmentation method which classifies in real time each pixel or region into three categories: shadows, foreground, and background objects. In the case of traffic monitoring movies, the effectiveness of the proposed method has been proven through experimental results.</p>
