Expectation-Maximization (EM) iteration is one of the most efficient algorithms for parameter estimation for Gaussian mixture model, which is a characteristic probability density function model for non-Gaussian processes. In general, EM iteration for multi-dimensional Gaussian mixture is too complicated to realize in practice. Fortunately, for fitting of the background's probability density function in active detection, the single dimensional Gaussian mixture is adequate. Therefore, EM iteration can be simplified efficiently. In view of active detection, followed with descriptions of single-dimensional Gaussian mixture model and its parameter estimation problem, a practicable simplified EM iteration is derived. Initialization and order determination is important in EM iteration. Schemes for initialization and order determining are proposed for high calculating speed, high estimation accuracy, and for the compromise of the two cases. Finally, a numerical simulation is given.
