The main idea of this work is object tracking using real time video processing. For this purpose we designed an embedded system that performs the object tracking algorithm for accurate tracking of defined object. The theme may be implemented for the security companies, sports and the armed forces to make them more equipped and advanced. The heart of the system is a Field Programmable Gate Arrays development kit. It controls the whole system by receiving the video signal from camera, processes it and sends the video signal to the Liquid Crystal Display or monitor. After receiving video of intended object, target selection is performed to select the target to track and then the tracking algorithm is implemented using image processing algorithms implemented using Field Programmable Gate Arrays development kit. We also interfaced the DC gear motor to control the movement of the camera in order to track the selected object. In order to design the standalone application we transformed our algorithm in Field Programmable Gate Array kit.[...] Read more.
