Abstract

Due to the rapid growth of computer science, image processing technology has recently been widely applied to various fields such as video-conferencing, computer vision and face tracking. However, the development of tracking systems is at a standstill because most studies have used the still camera and pure background. In an effort for advancement, this study proposes a wireless real-time tracking system based on background subtraction, the Gauss motion model, and the Otsu algorithm, to identify a moving object and then pursue it. This system consists of (a) a tracking platform with ARM and robot and (b) an image recognition system that regulates the location of the robot to trace the object and identifies the location of the object from the real-time image, respectively. In practice, the results of this study show that the proposed system can effectively trace the specific moving object and mark the object in the center of the view.
