Motion detection is a live issue. Moving objects are an important clue for smart video surveillance systems. In this work we try to detect the motion in video surveillance systems. The aim of our work is to propose solutions for the automatic detection of moving objects in real time with a surveillance camera. We are interested by objects that have some geometric shape (circle, ellipse, square, and rectangle). Proposed approaches are based on background subtraction and edge detection. Proposed algorithms mainly consist of three steps: edge detection, extracting objects with some geometric shapes and motion detection of extracted objects.
