"track" image on video camera.


Hi!

I want to "track" something (vehicle or people in motion) in video camera (ex: webcan).
I was thinking in make a interface in C++ ou VB.net where the video camera image show me a image. When I "track (some like a square)" on my target in a image video camera, the square following the target. Look like a FLIR System when designated something.

Somebody can I help me? Where can I begin to do that?!

Thanks a lot in advance, this forum really help me!

  • OpenCV. Has tracking functions built in.

    If your looking to track something like a person, that is way more complicated. Look up optical flow.
  • Thanks for helping guys!

    I was searching in internet and find www.processing.org
    Is a good way to begin?
  • Try looking into "quantitative imaging" - you can use MatLab (among other tools) to do this, but it generally requires a pretty large amount of processing power (i.e. an additional processor apart from the Arduino Mega)

    You've got some reading/studying to do. All of the info you need is out there. If you're not willing to write it all yourself, check out RoboRealm, the Intel video library or M$'s robot framework.

    Not a newbie project, thats for sure!
