Getting rid of tiled background

I'm using canny edges in a video stream, which captures objects on ground (the camera it self is moving). The problem I have is that the ground is tiled, therefore the tiled edges are captured as well. I did a Gaussian smoothing but it didn't remove the tiles.
Is there a background subtraction I can use to get rid of the tiles?

Since your camera actually moves, the background will never be statically, thus you cannot remove it just by backgroundsubtraction. I guess you will have too cope with it or try to delete edges with a specific character? Maybe look at horizontal and vertical lines, and remove those from the edge map?
