Object Motion Direction Detection and Tracking for Automatic Video Surveillance

By Adithya Urs Nagaraju C

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Apr. 2021

In today’s world having a smart reliable surveillance system is very much in need. In fact in many public places like banks, jewellery stores, malls, schools and colleges it is basic necessary to have a surveillance system (CCTV). Most of today’s implementations are not smart and they record videos during night even when there is no motion. This will lead to unnecessary storage usage and difficult to get the important part of the footage. And also, most of the today’s implementations are stationary, they can’t track the moving object. This report will outline a naive approach to implement a smart video surveillance system using object motion detection and tracking. Here we are using conventional Background subtraction model to detect motion and we estimate the direction of motion of object by comparing the centroid of the moving object in subsequent frames and track the moving object by rotating the camera using servo. Video recording takes place only when there is movement in the frame which helps in storage efficiency. We are also improving the speed of email alert delivery by using multithreading.

Self-Stabilizing Spoon for Parkinson’s Ailment

By Jaswanth D K Christopher Lenord J Pavan S L Nagaraju C

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Oct. 2020

There is a substantial increase in the number of people getting affected by Parkinson Disease at the current scenario. Hence there is a critical need of support to such patients, as engineers it is our duty to ensure their needs as fulfilled. This paper basically proposes few models and prototypes that would bring a ray of hope in the patient’s life. Here authors have proposed a supportive solution to this disorder. Basically our model uses a Nano board as the black box to which we provide the inputs and also we ensure the stabilizing in the form of tremor nullifying effect by using gyroscope, accelerometer and light weighted servo motors. In the present methodology self-stabilizing is done using servos using data provided to them by the gyro via a controller. Experimental analysis when carried out on different weight or object as an input on the spoon, designed model clearly depicts the decrease in the peak of tremor. The flexibility in the design basically refers to the all in one holder which is incorporated in the apex of the prototype, which aids the patient to not only use it is as a spoon, but also can be used to operate a key or any other objects by easily fitting it to the self-stabilizing device.
