Motion detection tells us whether there is a change in position of an object with respect to its surroundings or vice versa. It is applied to various domestic and commercial applications starting from simple motion detectors to high speed video surveillance systems. In this paper, results obtained from some simple motion detection algorithms, which use methods like image subtraction and edge detection, have been compared. The software used for this purpose was MATLAB 7.6.0 (R2008a). It has been observed that while image subtraction is sufficient to detect motion in a video stream, combining it with edge detection in different sequences yields different results in different scenarios.
