A Long Term Change Detection (CD) Method is presented by definition of a probabilistic model and the integration of two different informative sources. The model is described from a theoretical point of view and its real implementation by means of a bank of shift registers is presented. The algorithm is part of a surveillance system for unattended railway stations: results on a real image sequence confirm its validity.
