For some reason, it's not there anymore. I thought posters couldn't delete a question once there were answers.

procedure is as follows (for stationary camera/background)

>> after background Subtraction, hold on this image

>> calculate & plot the centroid of segmented image (for example with '*')

>> then show image

>> do same procedure for all frames

NOTE : After background subtraction remove noise by some Morphological tool.
