subtraction is an effective method of choice when it comes to detection of moving objects in videos and has been recognized as a breakthrough for the wide range of applications of intelligent video analytics (IVA). In recent years, a number of video datasets intended for background subtraction have been created to address the problem of large realistic datasets with accurate ground truth. The use of these datasets enables qualitative as well as quantitative comparisons and allows benchmarking

Therefore, we systematically survey standard video datasets and list their applicability for different applications. This paper presents a comprehensive account of public video datasets for background subtraction and attempts to cover the lack of a detailed description of each dataset. The video datasets are presented in chronological order of their appearance. Current trends of deep learning in background subtraction along with top-ranked background subtraction methods are also discussed in this paper. The survey introduced in this paper will assist researchers of the computer vision community in the selection of appropriate video dataset to evaluate their algorithms on the basis of challenging scenarios that exist in both indoor and outdoor environments.
