The growing security challenges raise the importance of research in the area of automated surveillance and tracking. Algorithms for real time video processing of aerial live videos can be very useful for meeting next generation surveillance needs. In this paper, a robust mechanism for extracting object and tracking in videos for surveillance purposes is presented. The proposed scheme uses a modified background subtraction algorithm, augmented with morphological processing. In first step the video is divided into a number of frames and performing histogram analysis on the frames, to extract background.
