The intention of this article is to implement a system of detection and segmentation of human silhouettes, the above mentioned tasks present a great challenge in security topics and innovation, in the last years and mainly on automated video surveillance systems, which require understanding the presence and human interaction in video sequences, e.g. Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Human Behaviour comprehension, Human fall detection, among others, but the most important is behavioural biometrics, this paper tackles the common step in these research areas: the Human silhouette extraction through the bounding box. To evaluate the proposed system, standardized databases where used and also proper videos are obtained trying to emulate real-world scenarios, where the quality and the distance are factors that have demonstrated challenges for the detection with computer vision and machine learning.
